Christa Teno, Seminole State's head women's golf coach, is a hall of famer.

The Tecumseh, Ontario, native was inducted into the Windsor/Essex County Sports Hall of Fame in her native Canada on Saturday, Oct. 16.

Teno, a former Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) Tour player, is an LPGA national evaluator and a Class A member of the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional Division. Before launching Seminole State's golf program in 2007, she appeared in four LPGA majors: the U.S. Women's Open (1988), the LPGA Championship (1999) and the du Maurier Classic (1989 and 1991). She also came in second on the money list for the Futures Golf Tour (1992) and was named Gold Coast Tour Champion in 1994 and 1995.

In 1998, Teno won the LPGA Teaching and Club Professional National Championship. In 2008, she was named LPGA Southeast Coach of the Year.

Teno has 35 years of golf experience and more than 20 years of teaching experience. She has a bachelor's degree in interpersonal communication from North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas) and was named the university's 1985 Female Athlete of the Year.

In three seasons with Seminole State, Teno has led the Raiders to two top-10 national finishes, including a third-place finish at the 2009 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Women's Golf Championship.

Teno is one of eight sports figures to be inducted into the 2010 Windsor/Essex County Sports Hall of Fame. Other honorees are: Robert Boucher, administrator; Danielle Campo, Paralympic swimmer; Cindy Crapper, track and field athlete; Godfrey Janisse, coach; Bob Probert, hockey player; Mark Rowsom, figure skater; and Terry Snyder, coach.
