Cuyahoga Falls High (1933) and Ohio State University (1937) graduate Bob Nihousen made an indelible mark on district and state tennis. After winning a state prep singles crown, he won six straight Akron District Tennis Association tournament titles. Meanwhile, Nihousen attended Ohio State and made off with a Western Conference crown. Subsequently he added seven more district championships. After becoming eligible for national seniors play, he once reached the finals of the doubles. When Nihousen wasn’t a court, he devoted himself to keeping association tennis on sound footing, serving repeated terms as present.
