Maharishi School boys tennis coach Lawrence Eyre was recently selected to be featured in the Iowa Hall of Pride. Located in Des Moines, the Hall of Pride showcases the achievements of all Iowans, from student athletes to sports legends and movie stars to scientists.
Mr. Eyre is featured in an interview in the interactive multimedia exhibit on tennis. His inclusion stems from recently being named National High School Coach of the Year by the United States Professional Tennis Association.
Mr. Eyre began the Maharishi School tennis program in 1988 and soon built it into a perennial power.
The boys tennis team has reached the Class 1A state tennis final-four team competition 12 times. And altogether they have 16 state titles in singles, doubles and team play.
In addition, a large photo of one of the championship boys team is one of the most prominent photos in the Hall of Pride tennis exhibit.
Also featured is a video interview with Tyler Cleveland, who won three state championships as a Maharishi School student and then went on to play for the University of Iowa, where he won the conference championship. Later, he competed professionally for a short time, winning a tournament and doing well in a number of others.
