NEW YORK CITY > TENNIS
Brennan, 61, a 21-year boys' and girls' coach at St. Francis Prep, guided the Lady Terriers to their 15th straight Class AA state and Catholic league titles in October. A tennis pro at North Shore Tennis Club, he returned to coaching less than a month after his last major surgery for oral cancer, four years ago. The boys under Brennan have earned nine state titles, and the girls set a state record with 203 straight wins.
GRAPEVINE, TEXAS > BASKETBALL
Cannon, 65, the athletic coordinator and girls' coach at Trinity High in Euless, led the Trojans to a 76--36 win over Dallas's Kimball High in November's Flower Mound Tournament to become the seventh girls' coach in the nation to win 1,000 games. Cannon, who has a 1,013--313 record over 41 seasons (27 at Trinity), was inducted into the Texas High School Basketball Hall of Fame in 2009.
WILLIAMSTOWN, MASS. > SOCCER
Russo, 68, a 34-year coach of the Williams men's team, won his 400th career match with a 2--1 season-opening victory over Westfield (Mass.) State last fall. His career winning percentage of .771 (415-103-58) ranks seventh all time in Division III. The first to win back-to-back national collegiate soccer Coach of the Year honors (1987 and '88), Russo has had four of his players go on to earn international caps.
