Lisa Ehrgott Street

Since age 12 when she was whacking balls off of the garage door at home, through the time of her selection as just the fifth tennis player to be inducted into the GPSHOF, Lisa Ehrgott Street has been serious about her tennis game. Under the tutelage of Bradley’s legendary tennis coach, Tom Coker (GPSHOF class of 1984), Lisa quickly developed her skill with many hours of practice and instruction at the Peoria Racquet Club. Lisa’s dedication quickly paid dividends as she led Peoria Bergan to four consecutive conference championships. She was just 13 when she earned her first varsity letter. She was twice nominated as the Tri-County Sports Figure of the Year.  Lisa realized exceptional achievement nationally at the junior level. From 1978 – 1981 she was a strong player in many national tournaments including the Wimbledon USA Championships (2nd place); USTA National Indoor Championships and Hardcourt Championships; Pacific Coast Championships; and she was Champion at the Western Tennis Association Indoor Championships in 1981.  After high school, Lisa accepted a full scholarship to compete on the Florida State Women’s Tennis team where she earned varsity letters in each of her four years. In FSU’s 2018 Media Guide (the guide includes statistics since the NCAA added Women’s Tennis to their Divison I championship programs), Lisa is listed 3rd in single-season winning percentage (minimum of 20 matches) with a 21-5 record in 1983 (.808), and 9th in career winning percentage (.673) with a record of 35 -17.
