News Journal

WILMINGTON — In a battle of Dayton area powers, Bellbrook stopped Wilmington 5-0 in non-league girls tennis action Wednesday on the WHS courts.

In the initial Dayton area coaches poll, Bellbrook was ranked No. 3 in Division I while WHS was ranked No. 8.

Wilmington drops to 3-5 the season. Bellbrook won the Hurricane Invitational tennis tournament on Saturday.

“Second and third singles matches were more competitive than the scores indicate,” WHS coach Doug Cooper said. “Bellbrook is a very good team and they are deep. There were some amazing points at first singles. Maya (Brink) returned some balls I didn’t think she would touch. She is such a steady player. Claire (Burns) was serving for the first set and Maya just wouldn’t go away. We had a nice crow at the courts again and they were treated to some very good high school girls tennis.”
