MASON — Clinton-Massie won five matches overall but had its tennis season come to an end Thursday at the Division II Cincinnati Sectional tournament at the Lindner Family Tennis Center.
“I was really pleased with how we battled the heat and the competition,” CM coach Lynn Deatherage said. “We knew from the start that the Cincinnati sectional has some of the best tennis in the state.”
Senior Nina Lazic won two matches, including her 20th of the season, before bowing out. Senior Raelee Schulz also won two matches. Seniors Kari Cragwall and Liza Duncan won their 20th match of the season in the tournament.
“I will miss the work ethic and sportsmanship this senior class brings to the courts on a daily basis,” Deatherage said.
Blanchester had a victory by Taylor Bradley and Grace Irwin in the doubles bracket but they eventually lost to the No. 4 seed.
“I’m pleased with how we competed,” BHS coach Matt Sexton said. “Any time you can have losses to McNicholas, CCD and CHCA, for a public school like us, you’ll take that. I was glad to see Grace (Irwin) and Taylor (Bradley) pull out that win. It gave them the opportunity to compete against a very good doubles team from CHCA. We hit some great shots against them. They were just too good.
“It was a fantastic season for us and I’m very excited to see what our returners can do the next couple of years.”
East Clinton did not win a match.
