Megan Dunigan

Women's Tennis 1999-2002

Furman University

2009 Southern Conference Hall of Fame Inductee


The most decorated women's tennis player in the history of the Southern Conference, Megan Dunigan was named Player of the Year in each of her four varsity seasons. Furman had a pretty good preview of the star player it was getting when the native of Oak Ridge, Tennessee completed a perfect 82-0 record in high school.

Dunigan was the SoCon's Female Athlete of the Year in 2002. That same year, she led the Lady Paladins to a first-round victory over LSU in the NCAA Tournament, the first time a Conference women's tennis team won a match in the NCAAs.

Voted MVP of the SoCon Tournament in 2000 and 2001, Dunigan also proved herself a champion in the classroom. She was a four-time member of the SoCon academic honor roll and twice was named to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-Academic team. She was also a 2002 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winner.

She finished her college career with an overall singles record of 79-19 and was voted into the Furman Hall of Fame in 2007.
