OWENSVILLE — In a rollercoaster match, the Blanchester tennis team won its SBAAC National Division opener Tuesday over Clermont Northeastern 5-0 on the CNE courts.
The Ladycats are 4-1 overall and 1-0 in the divisional. The Rockets are 1-2 overall, 1-1 in the National.
“It was a bit of a rollercoaster but in the end it was a 5-0 win without dropping a set, so we’ll take it,” BHS coach Matt Sexton said.
Maggie Caldwell and Abby Irwin posted a 6-0, 6-0 win for BHS at second doubles. Grace Irwin was a winner at second singles. Both lost on Monday against Cincinnati Country Day.
Sexton said Maddy Coyle dealt with a drastically different style of play from her opponent. Once she figured that out, Sexton said, “she rolled.”
Leah Boegeman had a solid win at third singles while Annie Trovillo and Rianna Mueller didn’t have their best stuff but “they found a way (to win) … and that’s what matters.”
