    Trojan Tennis Takes High Seeds For 2013 NCAA Championships

    Four-time defending champion USC men are seeded No. 4; Pac-12 champion Women of Troy are No. 5.

    Brett Masi enters his fourth season as an assistant coach to head coach Peter Smith after spending the 2005 season as a volunteer assistant to the USC men's tennis program.

    Masi has now earned back-to-back honors as the ITA West Region Assistant Coach of the Year. He first won the award in 2007 following the Trojans' run to an 11-0 start and eventual 23-3 overall record with its trip to the NCAA Quarterfinals, and picked up his second accolade in 2008 after another USC run to the NCAA Quarterfinals.

    This marks his seventh season in collegiate tennis after spending his first two years as an assistant coach to the men's and women's programs at Santa Clara. Masi shared the responsibilities of individual workouts, strength and conditioning, recruiting and summer camp instruction for both the Bronco men's and women's teams in 2003 and 2004.

    In addition to his coaching duties, Masi also served as the Club Sports Coordinator and Bronco Kidz All-Sports Camp Director for the Pat Malley Fitness and Recreation Department in Santa Clara during this time.

    Masi was a four-year letterwinner at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, where he remains one of the program's all-time winningest players. He completed his career with a 60-29 singles record, playing among the top three singles positions since his freshman campaign. He earned his highest career singles ranking at No. 38 in 2000 and was named to the All-Big West Conference first team as a senior.

    In 2001, he earned his bachelor's degree in recreation administration from Cal Poly and earned his master's degree from Azusa Pacific in 2002.

    In addition to coaching, Masi works as an instructor for Peter Smith at The Long Beach Tennis Academy and the Peter Smith Tennis Camps during the summer. He also spends time coaching and developing junior tennis players throughout Southern California.

    Masi prepped at Riverside Poly High School, where he was a four-time Ivy League champion in both singles and doubles.

    Masi was born Nov. 2, 1978 in Riverside, Calif. He and his wife, Desiree, have a 2-year-old son, Jaxson, and new daughter, Devyn.
