Tsibouris is Joined by Assistant Coaches Godsey, Winfree, and Flanigan
We are excited to announce that Dino Tsibouris will lead our Girls Tennis teams this year. Tsibouris will be assisted by Adriana Godsey, Susan Winfree, and Angela Flanigan.
Prior to his new coaching role, Tsibouris has served in various coaching roles for WC’s high school and middle school tennis teams. He played on the first Worthington Christian High School boys tennis team and won WC’s first OHSAA state championship in 1986, playing doubles with Matt Kibble. Tsibouris then played on a tennis scholarship for Cedarville University, majoring in Business Administration. He won 125 matches over four years and entered the Cedarville University Athletic Hall of Fame in 2008. He currently plays competitively in USTA and GCTA leagues and is a USPTR Certified teaching professional.
When he is not playing tennis, Tsibouris is an attorney focusing on technology and privacy law in Westerville, Ohio. He is married to Kendra, and they have three children who played on WC tennis teams, Chris (WC ‘17), Peter (WC ‘20), and Danielle (9th grade). Coach Tsibouris’ hope for the team this year is that they will grow in their faith, encourage one another, improve their skills, and represent Christ on the court.
Godsey (pictured top right) has been enjoying and playing tennis for over 40 years, including competitive play throughout high school in NE Ohio. She is a member of the USTA and is obtaining its additional tennis coaching certification. Her family enjoys playing tennis together and loves how tennis can be a game for anyone at any stage of life. Coach Godsey and her husband, Brandon, both graduated from Miami University. They live in Columbus with their three children; their oldest two are a Junior and Senior this year at WC.
Off the court, she works as a consultant for a risk management broker and helps run her family’s e-commerce business. Coach Godsey’s philosophy is that players should practice, play, and interact with enthusiasm because life is a blessing, and our joy is a beautiful witness to others and gives honor to God. She is excited to help the girls develop physically, emotionally, and spiritually so they enjoy a genuine victorious Christian lifestyle. She wants the players to win and lose gracefully so that we glorify God in all of it.
Winfree (pictured center right) excelled in basketball and tennis while a student at Medina High School. She then pursued collegiate basketball at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. In 1996 she transferred to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, to pursue a B.S. in Sports Organization, graduating in 1999. After relocating to The Outer Banks of North Carolina, she continued her love of coaching in Parks and Rec basketball. After taking time off to raise her children, Susie returned to coaching and joined the First Flight High School Girls Basketball team as the Head JV Coach and Assistant Varsity Coach from 2014-2016. While in North Carolina, Winfree was heavily involved with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) and served on the local board for five years.
Winfree and her family returned to Lewis Center, Ohio, in 2016, and she continued to play on various USTA teams over the past 15 years in North Carolina and Ohio. After returning to Ohio, Winfree has participated in Bible Study Fellowship for the past seven years. She and her husband, Ben, have three children; Kara, who recently graduated from Oakstone Academy; Brooke (10th grade) and Ben Jr. (8th grade). Winfree is the Director of Outreach and Family Life at Orange Friends Church and serves on the Lifewise Academy Location Board. Coach Winfree is excited to share her love of Jesus through the game of tennis and encourage WC athletes in their walk with Christ. Her life verse is Joshua 24:15.
Flanigan (pictured lower right) has been playing tennis for 45 years, including high school and during her four years as a student at Wheaton College. She currently enjoys playing competitive tennis through the USTA leagues. Coach Flanigan is looking forward to helping the girls grow both spiritually and athletically through the sport of tennis.
