Leopards Boys Tennis Finishes Historic 17-2 Season

Louisville Leopards Boys Tennis 2013 NBC Champions

The Leopards Boys Tennis team wrapped up the 2013 season with a 17-2 overall team record and completed a perfect 10-0 run through the NBC.

This year’s squad becomes the first team to reach 17 victories since the perfect 17-0 squad of 1979. The only other Louisville tennis team to have more victories in a single season was the 1977 Beatty's Sports Spring Sports 2013Leopards who finished 19-3. This year’s .895 winning percentage is also second only to the 1979 team.

Louisville has now won NBC Titles in 9 of the 12 years that Boys Tennis has been an NBC sport in holding an 81-13 all-time record in NBC matches. The Leopards have also had a perfect run through the conference 6 times overall, but this is the first time any NBC team has ever gone 10-0. The only other time Louisville won 10 league games in a season was in 1979 when they went 10-2 in the Federal League.

After clinching the NBC at Canton South, Louisville defeated the Wildcats at home the next day 4-1. They then blanked Alliance 5-0 on May 2 to complete a perfect 10-0 run through the NBC.

Perry defeated Louisville 3-2 on May 6 to end the Leopards 15-game winning streak. The streak was the third longest in team history:

  • 24 – 1978-80
  • 16 – 2003-04
  • 15 – 2013
  • 14 – 2012
  • 13 – 1983
Louisville finished out their season with two home victories over Green 3-2 and Ravenna 5-0.
