Ann Hutcheson Price


Ann Hutcheson Price (Tennis, 1969-71) 

Ann Hutcheson played for the women’s tennis team in the days before Title IX, meaning the program was non-scholarship and essentially self-coached. Nevertheless, Hutcheson was a Southern and national standout at both singles and doubles and always represented the university with dignity and grace. After tennis came another successful endeavor as a physician. Now she calls herself Dr. Price and serves as the Associate Dean of Alumni Affairs for Vanderbilt’s School of Medicine.
