Marc Thomas has been named the new girls tennis coach at New Albany High School.

Thomas, a 1997 Franklin Heights graduate, is replacing Tim O'Haver, who declined to sign a new contract following the 2010 season. O'Haver compiled a 47-9 match record in three seasons with the Eagles, which included last year's 17-3 mark as five players advanced to the Division I district tournament and senior Meghan Buell qualified for state.

Thomas, 32, has been the junior-varsity girls and boys coach at Pickerington North since 2007. He signed a letter-of-intent with Mount St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, Md., a Division I program, coming out of high school. He later transferred to Otterbein, where he played first singles for three seasons. He served as an assistant at Otterbein from 2005-06.
