The Rider tennis coach is Hall of Famer Ed Torres, who holds the Rider record for career victories. Torres posted an unbeaten record in his first three years as Rider's number one singles player, winning the 1952 Rider Invitational. He finished his career 43-1. Still an avid player, in 1995 he was ranked first in New Jersey in the men's 60 years and older division. In 1993, he won a bronze medal in the National Senior Games in Baton Rouge, LA, after winning a gold medal in 1991 at the Nationals in Syracuse. In 1997, Torres came home from Arizona with a second gold medal at the National Senior Games. Most recently, Torres' Asbury Park High School (class of '50) career placed him on both the Asbury Park Press All-Jersey Shore All-Century team, consisting of 17 men and eight women, and was named one of the top 15 New Jersey high school players from 1900-1960 by the Newark Star-Ledger.
