  • Has guided Ashland's women to back-to-back GLIAC Tournament appearances.
  • Came to Ashland after almost a decade at NCAA Division I Coastal Carolina as a coach and player.

Lexi Bolesky is in her second season as Ashland University Director of Tennis Operations, and her fourth season with the Eagles overall.

Bolesky spent the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons leading the AU women's tennis team. In 2017-18, Ashland won eight matches, and qualified for the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Tournament for the first time in four years.

In 2018-19, in her first season in the Operations role, the Eagle women once again qualified for the GLIAC Tournament, while the Ashland men, in their first season of play since the mid-1990s, did the same.

Bolesky, a native of nearby Lexington, Ohio, spent the better part of the previous decade at NCAA Division I Coastal Carolina – first as a player, then as an assistant coach.

Bolesky played for the Chanticleers from 2007-11, then became their volunteer assistant coach in the fall of 2012, then assistant coach starting in the spring of 2014. As an assistant, Bolesky helped Coastal Carolina to three consecutive seasons with at least 16 wins overall, as well as a share of the Big South regular-season title in 2015, and coached two Big South Freshmen of the Year.

As a collegiate student-athlete, Bolesky was a three-time All-Big South selection in both singles and doubles, and boasted a 74-44 career record in singles and a 74-39 career mark in doubles. She graduated Cum Laude from Coastal Carolina in the fall of 2011 with a degree in Recreation and Sport Management, earned three NCAA Academic All-American honors and was a four-year Student-Athlete Advisory Committee representative.

As a prep star at Lexington High School, Bolesky won an Ohio team state championship and was the state individual runner-up in 2006. She also earned two Division I first-team (junior and senior seasons) and two D-I second-team (freshman and sophomore seasons) awards.
