Last season Hewitt led the Chants to an impressive 18-6 overall record, and a berth in the Big South Conference Championship where they fell 4-0 to Winthrop to finish the season second in the Big South.
Hewitt will welcome back three returning players from last season and bring in six new recruits to round out the 2012-13 women's tennis squad.
Hewitt, a Conway native, was named head women's tennis coach in July of 2011, taking over the reins of the Chanticleers' program after three-plus years as the director of tennis at Spring Valley Country Club in Columbia. She replaced Jody Davis, who retired from coaching after 15 seasons as head coach of the Chanticleers.
While serving as director of tennis at Spring Valley Country, Hewitt was responsible for all operations of the tennis club, including the instruction of members of all skill levels and coaching of junior teams. Prior to accepting the position at Spring Valley, she was the head teaching professional at the Topspin Racquet & Swim Club in Lexington. As head teaching professional, Hewitt engaged in substantial teaching responsibilities with tennis students of all ages and ability levels. Hewitt also implemented the successful Cardio TennisTM program at Topspin Racquet & Swim Club.
Hewitt is a member of the Professional Tennis Registry and holds professional level certification through the United States Professional Tennis Association. As a member of the United States Tennis Association in South Carolina, she has served as a member of the Tennis Professional Committee.
During her playing career, she helped guide South Carolina to a No. 11 national ranking in 2000 and a Southeastern Conference championship final in 2001. Prior to playing collegiately, Hewitt was named the 1998 South Carolina Junior Player of the Year after winning the 1998 Wachovia Palmetto singles championship.
Hewitt received her undergraduate degree in sport and entertainment management from the University of South Carolina in 2003.
