2018-19: Senior
A second-team All-Big Ten selection, Toby Boyer led Nebraska with 18 singles wins exclusively out of the No. 1 spot, including a career-high five upsets against nationally-ranked opponents. Boyer earned Big Ten Player of the Week Honors on March 26, as well as notching a spot on the Oracle/ITA singles rankings for two consecutive weeks -- No. 93 on April 2 and No. 114 on April 9.

Boyer's most notable victory came in a straight-sets defeat of No. 47 Josip Krstanovic, 7-6 (1), 6-4 on March 24, to help Nebraska upset No. 18 Minnesota by a 4-3 margin. That was the Huskers' first ranked win since April 17, 2016 -- when it beat No. 59 Purdue -- and first victory over a top-25 opponent since March 13, 2010, when it knocked off No. 23 BYU. 

In doubles play, Boyer teamed up with junior Micah Klousia to earn a berth among the nation’s top 32 doubles teams, as they qualified for the ITA National Fall Championships, Nov. 7-8. The Husker duo produced an impressive 4-1 run at the ITA Central Regionals on Oct. 18-22. Boyer/Klousia upset the tournament’s No. 1 seed (Arkansas) before knocking off teams from Creighton and Tulsa to earn a spot among the event’s four best pairs.

Boyer finished the season with a 18-11 singles mark (15-9 Spring, 4-7 Big Ten) and a 13-19 doubles record (7-15 Spring, 3-6 Big Ten).

2017-18: Junior
Boyer produced the best season of his career and one of the most individually successful campaigns in Nebraska history in 2017-18. In the fall, Boyer reached the ITA Central Regional Singles final. He was only the second Husker to reach the event finals since Karl Falkland won the tournament in 1993. Following the Regionals, Boyer was the only player representing Nebraska in the ITA National Fall Championships.

Overall, the Ham Lake, Minn. native posted a 26-14 record, including a 12-9 (3-8 Big Ten) mark in the spring while playing almost exclusively out of the No. 1 spot.

Boyer’s 26 singles victories ranked fourth in history on Nebraska's single-season list. He surpassed his older brother Dusty, who posted 25 wins in 2014 en route to first-team All-Big Ten honors. Boyer’s spring campaign included a season-opening nine-match winning streak. He did not take his first loss until a March 14 setback against No. 40 Iowa.

In doubles play, Boyer teamed up with senior Linus Erhart in Nebraska's No. 1 duo for most of the season. Boyer finished with an 11-9 spring doubles record, including a 3-3 mark in the Big Ten.

Off the court, Boyer had similar success. He earned a spot in the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall of 2017 and was honored as a member of the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team in 2018.

2016-17: Sophomore
One of the most experienced Huskers despite being just a sophomore, Boyer led Nebraska with 11 singles victories in 2016-17. His seven dual victories tied for the team lead with Dylan Bednarczyk, while playing all of his matches out of the top two spots in the Husker lineup. He added four doubles victories while playing with four different partners throughout the season. Boyer and Jon Meyer went 3-4 at No. 3 doubles in dual action during the season.

Off the court, Boyer earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the spring of 2017, while also being a member of the 2017 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

2015-16: Freshman
Boyer concluded his freshman season with a 15-8 singles record, playing primarily out of the No. 3 position. He battled to a 2-7 mark in Big Ten play.

Boyer played in Nebraska's top doubles pair alongside his older brother, Dusty. The duo went 21-4 overall, including 16-3 in the spring. They posted a solid 6-3 Big Ten mark.

The Boyer brothers had a successful run at the Big Ten Individual Championships in the fall of 2015, winning the doubles title. Toby also reached the final of the singles championship, finishing second.
In the classroom, Boyer earned a spot on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall of 2015.

Before Nebraska
Boyer graduated from Forest Lake High School. In 2015 Boyer was the AA Minnesota high school state champion in singles and ranked No. 35 nationally.

The son of David and Gina Boyer, Toby was born on June 6, 1996. Toby has an older brother, Dusty, who was a three-time All-Big Ten selection as a four-year letterwinner on the Nebraska men’s tennis team. Dusty graduated from Nebraska in May of 2016. Toby majored in management and earned his bachelor's degree from Nebraska in December 2019. He was a five-time Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll selection. He was also a member of the 2017 and 2018 Tom Osborne Citizenship Teams.
