Each spring the top 40 boys and top 40 girls in the country are honored as National High School Tennis All Americans by the National High School Tennis All-American Foundation.  This year, Tiger Tennis junior Brandon Lancaster was named an All American!  Lancaster won the 2014 KHSAA Boys’ Singles State Championship on Saturday as well as being a part of the sixth straight St. Xavier team state championship.

To be eligible to receive consideration as an All-American tennis player a student/athlete must maintain an above average academic and citizenship record, compete on a high school tennis team, and garner an individual national ranking. Among the elite group of student/athletes honored in the past as tennis All-Americans are many current and former professional tennis players, including Pete Sampras, Todd Martin, Kimberly Po, Aaron Krickstein, Jeff Tarango, Taylor Dent and Sam Querrey. All decisions for All-American honors are researched and authorized by a panel of eight National District Chairmen who are highly respected high school coaches.
