ADAMS TOWNSHIP — Led by Claire Burns and Jenna Taylor, the Wilmington High School girls tennis team defeated Clinton-Massie 4-1 Tuesday in the opener for WHS.
Massie is 1-1 on the year. WHS is 1-0.
“That was a really nice start for us,” Wilmington head coach Doug Cooper said. “First time I can think of for years that we’ve opened this late and on the road.”
Burns and Taylor were both 6-0, 6-0 winners in their singles matches.
Vanessa Asher, the normal CM first singles player, went to first doubles and teamed with Addison Swope for a 6-2, 6-2, win.
“Addison and Vanessa played a really nice match,” Cooper said.
The match of the day came at second doubles where Reagan Henry and Avni Patel of Wilmington outlasted Noel Gasaway and Maria Jones of Massie 5-7, 6-2, 10-8.
“That second doubles match was a doozy,” said Cooper. “It’s nice for our freshmen to finally get their first varsity match in. Our singles players were on point tonight.”
