Cardinals hand Wildats first tennis loss


FELICITY — In an SBAAC National Division thriller, Felicity edged Blanchester 3-2 Tuesday night.

The Wildcats (2-1, 1-1) and Cardinals battled down to the wire on all five courts.

“Today was a tough loss but I believe we got better,” BHS coach Reilly Hopkins said. “It just as easily could have gone the other way and hopefully it does at the next meeting.”

Colton Wilson was a 2-6, 6-0, 10-4 super tiebreaker winner at second singles.

Brian Miller at first singles and the first doubles team of Joseph Mills and Carter Stevens lost a tight one that included a tiebreaker in the first set.
