Kudos to Gunn for having an undefeated season for the first time since 1978.
Gunn had nine or ten undefeated squads in a row establishing a national record of 200 consecutive victories.
Three players from those teams, Nick Saviano, Matt Mitchell and Chip Hooper reached top 70 in the world professionally. Hooper went to #17 in the world, despite being only #4 on his Gunn team.
Maybe 40 years from now people will be reciting Kawai, Jangbahadur and Huynh as their Titans of tennis pantheon.
