WHS tennis notches fourth win of week

WILMINGTON – A consistent Wilmington High School tennis team defeated Clinton-Massie 4-1 Thursday in SBAAC American Division action on the WHS courts.

The lone Massie win was at first singles where Clayton Amburgy defeated Brayden Rhoads 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-2).

“Wilmington has a very solid team,” CM coach Rod Amburgy said. “Clayton played a very good match that had momentum swings back and forth for both players.”

Said WHS coach Steve Reed, “Clayton and Brayden battled for two and a half hours in the cold and wind. Each time they play, it tends to be a long, dramatic match. Brayden showed a lot of grit but fell short in a big comeback in the second set.”

Wilmington is 5-3 overall, 3-0 in the American. The Falcons are 4-2 overall and 1-2 in the conference.

The Hurricane will face Beavercreek Friday with a chance for a fifth win in the week.
