In a remarkable evening filled with triumph and celebration, the Ohio State men’s tennis team secured a historic victory against Baylor on Wednesday, marking Head Coach Ty Tucker’s 700th career win at the helm of the Buckeyes Men’s Tennis Team. The team’s outstanding performance not only added another milestone to Tucker’s illustrious coaching career but also solidified their undefeated record and top-ranking in the nation.

Tucker, who has been guiding the Ohio State men’s tennis program for 25 seasons, reached this monumental achievement with an overall coaching record of 700-101. His impressive resume includes being named the 2009 National Coach of the Year, a staggering 16-time Big Ten Coach of the Year, and a 9-time ITA Midwest Regional Coach of the Year. Tucker’s impact on the team is further highlighted by his role as the all-time winningest men’s tennis coach in Ohio State’s history.

The Ty Tucker Tennis Center, a state-of-the-art facility on campus, is a testament to the coach’s contributions and influence. Named in his honor, the center stands as a symbol of Tucker’s dedication to the development of his players and the overall success of the program.

In the recent clash against Baylor, Ohio State demonstrated their dominance, clinching the victory with a 4-1 triumph in singles play. The duo of JJ Tracy and Robert Cash secured the only doubles win of the night, with Tracy notching his 200th and 201st career victories for the Buckeyes. Despite a 1-2 performance in doubles action, the team’s singles prowess proved to be the difference-maker.

The singles victories came from standout performances by Tracy, Justin Boulais, Cannon Kingsley, and Jack Anthrop. With the victory, Ohio State extends its flawless season record to 15-0 and maintains its position as the top-ranked team in the nation. The momentum gained from this significant victory will undoubtedly fuel the team as they prepare for their next challenge on March 10, a showdown against the 10th-ranked Texas Longhorns on their home turf.
