I attended this event a few years ago when the son of a friend was playing in it (for a different school).  It's a tremendous weekend, with lots of young people playing just to complete and for love of the game.

This...Is...Awesome.  Me and about 35 other Buckeyes re-started the club tennis team in 2003 after it had been gone for several years.  We practiced from 10-midnight in the old Jesse Owens West.  After just three years our A squad made it to nationals.  At nationals you are put in pool play and then into "brackets" based on how well you did in pool play, so the gold bracket teams are the only ones that can win the title. 

I was on the B squad at OSU, but got my master's at Tennessee and competed at nationals there 9 years ago.  SO much good tennis.  I've been an assistant and a head tennis coach at the NCAA Division III level and teams at nationals have, on average, more talent than a typical D-III team.  It's full of really good tennis players that just wanted to go to a bigger school instead of compete for a smaller school's varsity team.

So incredible that they won the title, so proud to have helped start it.  As always, Go Bucks!

A Natty is a Natty. I don't care what level or division it is. It's still a Natty.

Well done, lads and ladies! Go Bucks!
