ORLANDO, Fla. – Ohio State seniors Andrew Lutschaunig and James Trotter captured the NCAA Division I Men’s Tennis Doubles Championship Saturday with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Cleeve Harper and Eliot Spizzirri of Texas at the USTA National Campus. It was the third time Lutschaunig/Trotter defeated Harper/Spizzirri this season.
Lutschaunig/Trotter (18-8) become the fifth Big Ten doubles team to win a national title and the first since Ohio State’s Chase Buchanan and Blaz Rola in 2012. It has been a particularly busy two weeks for Trotter, who played a combined 11 matches (singles and doubles) in nine days at the NCAA Championships.
Earlier on Saturday, Michigan’s Ondrej Styler fell to Georgia’s Ethan Quinn in the singles championship, 6-7, 7-6, 6-2. Styler, who lost for the first time since February 5, finished his senior season with a 33-5 singles record as the Big Ten Men’s Tennis Athlete of the Year.
Today’s action closed the 2022-23 collegiate tennis season which began in mid-September.
