dc.description.abstractThis paper provides an in-depth look into the history of the Kalamazoo College men’s tennis program, as they maintained an unbelievable conference title winning streak that is unparalleled in any other sport, at any level. Starting with its origins with Dr. Allen B. Stowe (affectionately known as Doc Stowe) in the 1930s, the entire seventy-plus year history of “The Streak” is recounted, providing firsthand accounts from interviews with former players along the way. Throughout this win streak, essentially only four coaches (Stowe, Acker, Corwin, and Riley) were responsible for maintaining it, a true testament to the rich history of Kalamazoo College tennis. Unfortunately, like all good things, they must come to an end. This paper will conclude with an in-depth analysis of the unfortunate off the court circumstances that retroactively ended “The Streak” at seventy-four years. Both the NCAA and MIAA sanctions against Kalamazoo College will be explained, as well as compared with historically relevant punishments against other institutions.en_US
