    Patty Fendick-McCain, a Sacramento native who starred at Stanford and in professional tennis, recently announced her retirement after nine years as the women's head coach at the University of Texas.
   Fendick-McCain, 49, led the Longhorns to the NCAA Championships each year, including appearances in the round of 16 in 2008, 2010 and 2012.
   Fendick-McCain went 158-83 (.656) at Texas and 281-149 (.653) in her 17-year head-coaching career. Before coming to Texas, she guided the University of Washington for eight years.

   "It is difficult to leave college coaching after pouring everything I have into it for 17 years," Fendick-McCain said on texassports.com. "But, I am looking forward to focusing on my family – my husband, Scott, my two daughters and my son. I thank UT for the opportunity to coach at such a great institution. I will miss all of the student-athletes that have worked so hard for us and all of the friends I have made at UT."
   Scott McCain, a 56-year-old Merced native, coaches professional players. He earned All-America honors at Cal and played on the pro tour in the mid-1980s.
   Fendick-McCain won NCAA singles titles in 1986 and 1987 and was selected in 2006 as the NCAA Division I Women's Tennis Most Outstanding Student-Athlete of the sport's first 25 years.  She also was named as the MVP of the NCAA's All-Decade Team for the 1980s.
   As a pro, Fendick-McCain reached career highs of No. 4 in the world in doubles and No. 19 in singles. She won 25 WTA titles in doubles, including the 1991 Australian Open with Mary Joe Fernandez, and three in singles.
  Texas has yet to name Fendick-McCain's successor.
