1980 SIUE Men's Tennis - Hall of Fame
With the cameras of ESPN rolling on the campus of SIUE, the heavily-favored Cougars overpowered Nicholls State 24-12 for its third consecutive NCAA Division II national championship. Coach Kent DeMars kept the Cougars on top with an impressive lineup that included Juan Farrow, Raimo O'Jala, Hugo Nunez, Garth Naumoff, Sujit Fernando, Ray Kuzava, and Jorma Leppanen. Farrow capped his career with his unprecedented third NCAA Division II singles crown. Farrow and Nunez combined for the NCAA doubles crown. Farrow became the second player in Division II history to win doubles crowns with different partners.
