Batavia edges Blanchester in tennis battle


BATAVIA — Batavia eked out a 3-2 win over Blanchester Monday in a non-league tennis match on the BHS courts.

Blanchester is now 5-5 on the year while Batavia improves to 6-2.

Kayla Allen came back from illness and won a three-hour marathon match 7-5, 6-7 (3-7), 10-8.

“I would have preferred that Kayla’s first match wasn’t a three-hour match, but it was good to see her get through it,” BHS coach Matt Sexton said.

The coached noted Annie Trovillo and Grace Irwin pulling out a three-set win at first doubles against a very solid Batavia pairing.
