A native of Columbia, Mo., Mitchell lettered at MU from 1973-76, and left as the only MU tennis player ever to win more than 100 matches. Playing number one singles and doubles for most of his career, Mitchell won Big Eight titles at both singles and doubles in 1975, helping MU win its first and only Big Eight Conference team championship. Later that year, Mitchell reached the quarterfinals at the NCAA Tournament, and helped MU to a 15th-place finish. Since leaving Missouri, Mitchell has stayed active in the sport. In 1989, he won the National Men's 35 Indoor Singles championships and played on the USA Italian Cup team in 1990. Mitchell was nominated in 1995 for the Rolex Achievement Award, administered by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. He is the first member of the now-defunct men's tennis program to be inducted into the MU Hall of Fame. Resides in Tulsa, Okla., where he is a trauma surgeon.
