After 33 seasons as Knoxville Boys Tennis Coach, Joel Tonda has decided to retire. Tonda coached his last match in last week’s district in Pella. In 33 seasons, Tonda guided Knoxville to a state team title in 2001 and numerous conference championships. He says one of his best memories was the 2001 team that was not looked at as a contender for the state title, but showed how much hard work can pay off. Tonda estimates he has coached over 600 different kids during his career. What means the most to him is, seeing the success his players have had after their careers are over and have them sharing it with him and the current team.
