COLUMBUS, Ohio – On the heels of a strong NCAA Tournament run and a 12th-straight Big Ten title, Ohio State men’s tennis associate head coach Justin Kronauge has been named the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year.
Kronauge helped lead Ohio State to its 12th-straight Big Ten regular-season title with a perfect 11-0 record. The Buckeyes won their 12th Big Ten Tournament championship and reached the finals of the 2017 ITA Division I Men’s National Team Indoor Championship. Despite playing one of the toughest schedules in the country, Ohio State held a Top 3 national team ranking all season.
This is the first time Kronauge has been named the national Assistant Coach of the Year. He received the ITA’s Midwest Region Assistant Coach of the Year honor for the third time this season. In his seven years as an assistant coach, the Buckeyes have compiled an overall record of 229-30. The former two-time All-American was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in September of 2016.
