Fenwick was appointed head coaching responsibilities following the reinstatement of the men's and women's tennis programs prior to the 2010-11 season. Under his leadership, both programs have quickly emerged as two of the most rapidly improving team in the nation.
The 2012-13 season was especially successful for the women’s tennis program as the Saints landed the first national ranking in school history and were one match away from a berth in the NAIA Women’s Tennis National Championship. Following the season, Fenwick was named as the 2013 Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Central Region Women’s Tennis Coach of the Year.
The lady Saints netted a 15-2 record in duel competition while the men battled their way to a 10-6 mark.
Year two of his reign saw the program expand to include a full women's squad which went 9-6 in dual competition during the 2011-12 season. The men continued to succeed, even with a very youthful team, posting a 9-8-1 record overall in year two of existence which included an undefeated month of February. In addition, Fenwick continue to work the international circuit to assemble diverse and talented rosters for the immediate future.
Both teams received Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) All-Academic recognition this past season, while six individuals received ITA All-Academic accolades.
Fenwick also serves as the director of operations for the men's and women's tennis program, including overseeing the Ashford Indoor Community Tennis Center, previously owned by the local YMCA.
Fenwick was the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Coach of the Year in 2008, leading Upper Iowa University to its first league title in school history. He also has head coaching experience at his alma mater at the University of Dubuque, Dubuque Senior High School, Hempstead High School and Dixon High School.
Under Fenwick's tutelage at Upper Iowa, regional singles champion Anastasia Dabiza of Skokie, Ill., went on to collect Northern Sun Conference Freshman of the Year accolades this past spring.
