Greg Morton was a three-time MAC champion, winning the league title at No. 4 singles as a sophomore in 1969, at No. 2 singles as a junior in 1970 and No. 1 singles as a senior in 1971. Morton's performance helped the Rockets win the MAC Championship title in each of those three seasons. In the 1971 season, Morton became the first Rocket tennis player to go undefeated in singles play, defeating players from major conferences such as the Big 8 and the Big Ten. Morton, who was named one of the Outstanding College Athletes of America, also made it to the MAC finals at No. 1 doubles as a senior. In 1970, Morton was a singles finalist at the Black National Tennis Championship in St. Louis. Morton also played basketball at UT, earning a letter as a walk-on in the 1970-71 season. Morton graduated with a degree in elementary education and went on to earn his master's degree from Cleveland State University. Morton and his wife Beverly are lifelong teachers who both retired last June.
