WILMINGTON — Clinton-Massie defeated Wilmington 5-0 Tuesday in SBAAC American Division tennis on the WHS courts.
Clinton-Massie shared the regular season American Division crown with New Richmond last season and is off to a 2-0 start this season.
“Another impressive Massie team,” WHS coach Steve Reed said. “It’s obvious they are putting in the work in the off-season.”
Despite the lopsided team score, the first singles match was epic between Wilmington’s Trey Reed and Clinton-Massie’s Connor Stulz.
Reed took the first set 7-5 but Stulz rebounded with a 6-0 win in the second set. The third set went back and forth with Stulz winning the coming out on top 5-7, 6-0, 6-3.
“Connor Stulz is going to be fun to watch this season,” Reed said. “He and Trey’s match had some great moments. Trey came back in the first set and had a big moment at 3-all in the third but fell just short.”
The Falcons are 2-0 in the American while the Hurricane drops to 0-2 in the conference.
Reed said his first doubles team of AJ Regan and Anthony Perez were “able to figure some things out” in their match.
