COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State junior John McNally was named both a singles and doubles All-American on Tuesday by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
This is the first All-America honors of McNally’s career, who becomes the eighth Buckeye to earn both singles and doubles awards in the same season. He joins Bryan Koniecko (2008), Steven Moneke (2008), Justin Kronauge (2008), Chase Buchanan (2010 & 2012), Blaz Rola (2012), Peter Kobelt (2014) and Mikael Torpegaard (2018).
McNally 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 Robert Cash to finish runner-up at the ITA Fall Championship while also advancing to the round of 16 in the singles draw.
After going 13-2 in the fall with Cash, the two opened the spring with six consecutive wins and rose to No. 1 in the country. McNally and Cash played one of the toughest schedules in the country as well, as they faced six of the other nine doubles All-America teams at some point in the season. The duo were 22-5 overall, had four wins over ranked teams and were never ranked lower than third in the country.
In singles, McNally had eight wins over ranked players, including five in the spring. He is one of seven athletes this year earning singles and doubles All-American honors.
