Ohio State’s Andrew Lutschaunig and James Trotter are the NCAA Doubles Champions in tennis, defeating No. 3 Cleeve Harper and Eliot Spirizzi of Texas, 6-4, 6-4 to take the crown in the championship match Saturday.
Lutschaunig and Trotter join Chase Buchanon and Blaz Rola, who won in 2012, as the only tandems in program history to take the crown.
The duo’s win concludes what has been an incredibly successful run at NCAAs for the Ohio State tennis team, who finished as the national runner-up in the team competition and saw two singles players, Trotter and Alexander Bernard, reach All-American status in that tournament.
As a doubles pairing Lutschaunig and Trotter finished the season at 18-8. For Lutschaunig, it’s his second doubles championship of the season, as he won the ITA Indoor Doubles Championship with JJ Tracy in the fall.
The title brings a fantastic conclusion to Ohio State’s tennis season.
