This is impressive:

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The fifth-ranked Ohio State men’s tennis team beat Wisconsin, 7-0 Friday at the Varsity Tennis Center to continue a historic home winning streak. The decade-long streak consists of 164 consecutive wins in Columbus and is the longest active home winning streak in all NCAA Division I sports.

During the streak and under the guidance of Ty Tucker, who was named head coach of the men's tennis team in 1999, the Scarlet and Gray have qualified for the NCAA Team Championships each season, advancing as far as the national championship match in 2009 as well as the semifinals in 2011 and the quarterfinals in 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012.

In addition to NCAA success, Ohio State has dominated the Big Ten Conference during the past 10 years, winning seven Big Ten regular-season and tournament titles. During the run, the Buckeyes have captured seven consecutive regular-season league crowns (2006-12), while winning six consecutive tournament championships from 2006-2011. In all, Ohio State has amassed a 103-4 (.962) regular-season record vs. Big Ten opponents since the start of the 2003 season.

Congrats all around.

So if your son gets a scholly offer to play at Ohio State, then that says a WHOLE lot about your son's tennis ability.
