Wilmington defeated by Chaminade-Julienne 3-2

WILMINGTON — Chaminade-Julienne defeated Wilmington 3-2 Wednesday in a non-league match at the WHS tennis courts.

Wilmington goes to 3-4 with the loss.

The match started on Aug. 25 but was delayed by inclement weather.

Jenna Taylor pulled off a big win at second singles 6-3, 5-7, 6-3.

“Jenna was able to battle back after dropping a very close second set,” WHS coach Doug Cooper said. “Great mental focus to turn the match around. Just as coach (Jim) Brooks from C-J said, Jenna handled the match like the senior she is.”

Claire Burns had defeated her opponent prior to the restart.
