IHSAA Boys Tennis State Finals Records

History of the Tournaments

From 1967-68 to 1973-74, each school could enter two singles players and two doubles teams into the state tournament. Singles players earned two points for their school for every victory, while doubles teams earned three points for their school with every win. The school with the most accumulated points at the conclusion of each level of the tournament -- sectional, regional and state finals -- was declared the team champion. The winning individual(s) that advanced through the entire tournament were honored as singles state champions and doubles state champions.

Beginning in 1974-75, the team format that is used today was introduced, which called for three singles players and two doubles teams from each school to play head-to-head (each victory worth one point) to determine the winning team. From 1974-75 through 1979-80, the tournament did not crown an individual as the singles state champion as it had in previous years and the same was true for doubles teams from 1974-75 through 1989-90.

In 1980-81, a separate tournament for No. 1 singles players was initiated and in 1990-91, a tournament for No. 1 doubles teams began. Both of those tournament formats are still used today.
