After guiding the Plant girls tennis team to the Class 4A state title this spring in her first and only season as a high school coach, Jacquelyn Rosen has taken the job as Berkeley Prep's director of tennis, Bucs athletic director Bobby Reinhart said.

Rosen will not only be in charge of the Berkeley Prep boys and girls tennis teams -- replacing Gary Baker, who resigned this month -- but  will be in charge of all facets of the tennis program, including summer camps and private instruction.

"We really think she's a great match and she will take the program to the next level," Reinhart said.

Rosen, a former teen pro phenom, has already worked individually  with several Berkeley players, Reinhart said.

Plant came from last place to win the Class 4A state team title this spring, winning all of its second-day matches to claim the title.
