St. James’ ‘Mr. Tennis’ Les Zellmann earns national top coach honor

Zellmann has posted 1,121 victories coaching boys’ and girls’ tennis and brought 16 teams to the state tournament. Les Zellmann never set out to become a tennis coach. Baseball was his sport growing up in Belle Plaine in the early 1970s. When he took his second teaching job in St. James in 1979, he sought a position coaching baseball, but there weren’t any available. So he settled on tennis, a completely new venture for him.
