This is the first All-American for all three athletes

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Three members of the Ohio State men’s tennis team were named ITA All-Americans on Tuesday – junior John McNally and freshmen Robert Cash and Cannon Kingsley. This is the first All-America honors of each of their careers.

John McNally

Robert Cash

Cannon Kingsley

McNally was a two-time All-American this year, earning the honor in both singles and doubles. He finished the year ranked No. 13 in singles and No. 3 in doubles while amassing a 19-6 singles record and a 23-5 doubles mark. The Cincinnati, native won both the singles and doubles titles at the ITA Midwest Regional in the fall, winning six matches over the final two days of the event. He then teamed with Cash to finish runner-up at the ITA Fall Championship. He and Cash were ranked in the top-3 all season and spent two weeks at No. 1. McNally had eight wins over ranked singles players and four wins over ranked doubles teams.

Cash quickly showed why he was one of the top-ranked junior doubles players in the country as he and McNally went 13-2 in the fall including the win and runner-up finish. The pair went 9-3 at the No. 1 doubles spot during the dual portion of the season and were never ranked lower than third in the country.

Kingsley also made an immediate impact, winning the consolation bracket at the ITA All-American Championship in his first collegiate event. He was ranked in the top-25 all season and finished the year ranked No. 14. Kingsley was 12-1 in dual singles matches and a perfect 10-0 in dual doubles matches. He avenged one of his losses from the fall by beating then No. 1 Daniel Cukierman 6-4, 6-2 in the Buckeye’s win over No. 1 Southern Cal. For the year, Kingsley had nine wins over ranked singles opponents including two over top-10 players.

These three become the 22nd, 23rd and 24th Buckeyes to earn All-America honors. McNally is the eighth Buckeye to earn both singles and doubles honors in the same season while Cash and Kingsley are just the third and fourth Buckeye freshmen to earn All-America honors in their first seasons.

Redshirt junior becomes fifth Buckeye to earn All-America accolades

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Shiori Fukuda, a redshirt junior on the Ohio State women’s tennis team, has earned ITA All-America accolades, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced Tuesday. The All-America singles awards were based on an unpublished, double run of ITA singles rankings, with 20 standouts recognized.

Fukuda is the fifth women’s tennis Buckeye to earn All-America status, and the third to be a singles All-American, joining Francesca Di Lorenzo (singles 2016 &17, doubles 2017), Miho Kowase (doubles 2017), Kristy Dascoli (singles & doubles 2001) and Monica Rincon (doubles 2001).

“It means a lot to be named an All-American,” Fukuda said. “It is a big deal. I have put in so much work to get this award, but could not have done just by myself. I just want to say thank you to all the people who have been supporting me. Go Bucks!”

 

Fukuda, from Tokyo, Japan, has been ranked for much of her Buckeye career, and rose from No. 79 in the preseason rankings to a then-career best No. 11 at the end of the fall. She then reached a high of No. 8 in February. Fukuda was No. 11 in the final rankings, released March 3. She was the first Buckeye to be ranked in the Top 10 since Di Lorenzo in 2017.

 

“I am so happy for Shiori and so proud of her,” Melissa Schaub, head coach of the Buckeyes, said. “She has worked so hard for the past three and a half years and I can’t think of anyone more deserving. She handles herself like a professional on the tennis court and this is just a result of that effort.”

 

A two-time Big Ten Athlete of the Week this season, Fukuda was 9-3 in dual matches (all on court one) and 24-7 overall, leading the Buckeyes in wins in both categories. She clinched the Buckeyes’ 4-3 road victory over Oklahoma State to seal a spot at ITA National Team Indoors

 

In the fall, Fukuda was the singles runner-up at the USTA Fall Ranked Spotlight and a finalist in both singles and doubles at the ITA Midwest Regionals. She reached the doubles final and advanced to the singles quarterfinals at an ITF $15K in Lubbock, Texas, as well.

 

Fukuda, who joined the Buckeyes in January 2017, is a two-time unanimous First Team All-Big Ten selection and was the 2018 Big Ten Freshman and ITA Midwest Region Rookie of the Year. She is 71-29 overall in singles, with a 42-13 dual match mark, and has a 53-35 doubles record, posting a 29-19 dual ledger. She is an Ohio State Scholar-Athlete and an Academic All-Big Ten choice.

 

As a team, the Buckeyes were 9-3 in the shortened season, ending the year ranked fifth nationally.

Miami Athletics announces Partnership with Brand Builder Jeremy Darlow

Wed, Apr 29, 2020 10:21 am

Miami Athletics is excited to announce a partnership with Jeremy Darlow in an effort to help student-athletes build personal brands that will set them up to succeed in life beyond sports, while maintaining Miami’s pursuit of Graduating Champions. Miami is the first school in the nation to offer this program to all of its student athletes and is the first Group of Five program in the country to partner with Darlow.

 

“We’re excited to partner with Jeremy and value his knowledge and expertise in helping student-athletes understand the value in building their personal brand,” said Breanna Robinson, Assistant Athletic Director for Leadership and Diversity. “The current circumstances present great challenges, but we’re also using it as an opportunity to enhance the skill sets and leadership abilities of our student-athletes. Our collaboration with Jeremy Darlow is one aspect of student-athlete development that we’re providing within Miami Athletics, and we see it as an additional way to equip students with a competitive edge when they graduate from Miami. We also view this partnership as an opportunity to appeal to prospective student-athletes and emphasize our mission to graduate champions.”

 

Darlow, the two-time best-selling author of Brands Win Championships and Athletes Are Brands Too and former director of marketing for adidas football and baseball, will begin educating Miami student athletes on May 7 through weekly video lessons. This step-by-step course will help Miami student athletes build their influence, beat the odds and leverage their athletic accomplishments well beyond sports.

 

“Miami’s commitment to Graduating Champions, both in sports and in life, is second to none,” said Darlow. “I could not be more impressed with the University and I’m proud to call the RedHawks a partner.”

 

Each video lesson will cover one of Darlow’s philosophies on brand development. At the end of each video, student athletes are then given the option to complete an assignment found in their copy of Darlow’s new book: The Darlow Rules. Those homework assignments provide guidance to the student athletes on how to begin building their plan for life after sports. Each student will graduate from the course with their own personal brand marketing plan, as well as a certificate of competition to include on their professional resume.
