Annie Kellogg stepped down as Valencia's boys tennis head coach, but she'll continue coaching the girls tennis team.

One of the most successful coaches in the Santa Clarita Valley is stepping down.

Kind of.

Valencia High boys and girls head tennis coach Annie Kellogg has resigned as boys coach, but will stay on as girls coach.

After coaching both since 1996, she is simply worn out.

“It’s just time for taking some personal time and it’s ski season. I’m a big skier and I have a place up in Mammoth,” Kellogg said.

The Vikings boys tennis team saw its 75-match Foothill League winning streak end on April 3 with a 10-8 loss to West Ranch.

Coming into the 2014 season, Valencia had won eight straight Foothill titles and nine of the last 10.

“It’s a huge hit,” said Valencia Athletic Director Brian Stiman of Kellogg’s no longer coaching the boys. “She’s been the mainstay of our tennis program. She has more league titles than anybody at our school, and she’s probably up there with anyone who has ever coached (in the Santa Clarita Valley). ... She has obviously made her mark. Anybody who knows anything about tennis out here, when you talk about tennis, the first coach’s name that comes up is Annie Kellogg — no question.”

Kellogg has won 10 league titles on the girls side and has taken teams to four CIF title matches.

The boys team never reached a CIF final.

“It’s been a great run and I’ve really enjoyed taking the (boys) program from really nothing and building it up to I think a premier program and putting it on the map with CIF,” Kellogg said.
