WILMINGTON — Clinton-Massie’s Avden Faucett was the lone county winner Thursday in the SBAAC American Division Tennis Championship on the Wilmington High School tennis courts.

Clinton-Massie finished second in the tournament team standings.

“All of our guys played really well,” Massie coach Rod Amburgy said. “As a team and as individual players, every one of our guys has improved greatly from where we started on March 6. As a coach, that’s exciting to see.”

Faucett breezed through a pair of matches, a 6-2, 6-2 win in his first match then a 6-0, 6-1 victory in the title bout.

Clinton-Massie also had a runnerup and three third-place finishes. One of the best matches in the tournament came at first doubles where Quinton Smith and Jack Anderson were on the short end of a back and forth thriller against two Bulldogs, 6-4, 4-6, 5-7.

Trey Reed had the best Wilmington finish, placing third at second singles.

There were several epic battles for the Hurricane. Alex Lazic had two great matches at first singles. He won the first, a 3-6, 6-2, 10-1 victory over Duh of Batavia but lost to Connor Stulz of Clinton-Massie 3-6, 6-2, 4-6.

The pairing of Dirk Rinehart and Toby Alsip won in the first round over a duo from New Richmond, 5-7, 6-2, 14-12
