Ohio State University: how many records since 2006!

on

The Ohio State University men’s tennis has been one of the best programs in the country for most of the past 20 years. The team wrapped up its 17th consecutive Big Ten title on Sunday. The Buckeyes have hoisted the trophy every year since 2006.

Tennis director Ty Tucker took over the program in 2000 and brought it to national prominence. He has been the master of this ascent and doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

As reported by the Ohio State website, below are notes on 17 consecutive titles. The 17th straight title breaks the tie with Michigan for the longest consecutive title streak in men’s tennis. It’s always nice when that school up north gets better.

The streak is the second-longest in any sport in Big Ten history, trailing only Iowa’s 25-game wrestling streak from 1974 to 1998. The Buckeyes’ Big Ten record during the streak is a ridiculous 179-2! That’s right, 179-2.

Ohio State also followed up their regular season title with a Big Ten Tournament title 12 times during this run. The Buckeyes’ overall record since 2006 is 549-59. That’s an average of 30+ wins per season, including the 14-win COVID season

At home, the Buckeyes were virtually unbeatable. Including all opponents and not just the Big Ten, the Buckeyes are 305-2 at home since their title streak in 2006.
