MT. ORAB — In a much-needed tough match, the Blanchester girls tennis team defeated Western Brown 4-1 Monday in a non-league match in Brown County.
“I knew Western Brown was going to have a solid singles lineup so I thought this would be a solid test,” said BHS coach Matt Sexton.
Maddy Coyle, who lost to Madison Kirk 3-6, 3-6 last year, came out on top 6-3, 6-3 this time around.
“It shows just how much she had improved,” Sexton said.
The Ladycats are 7-2 on the year while the Broncos drop to 1-5.
Sexton noted Annie Trovillo’s 6-1, 6-0 win at third singles came against a girl that played first singles against BHS last season.
“Annie hit her off the court. Impressive win,” the coach said.
