WHS tennis wins on Senior Night


Staff Report



Wilmington had no trouble with East Clinton Tuesday in a South Central Ohio League tennis match on the WHS courts.

The Lady Hurricane won in straight sets on all five courts.

Allison Brooks, now 21-1 on the year, picked up the 80th win of her illustrious WHS career on Senior Night.

“What Allison has accomplished in four years here is truly impressive,” said WHS coach Doug Cooper.

Brooks and Mai Cooper are the lone seniors in the WHS lineup.

“Mai has really improved her play in the second half of the season,” said Cooper. “She has raised her game to a new level just at the right time of the season. I couldn’t be more proud of these seniors. I’m going to miss them.”

Brooks narrowly missed being seeded in the upcoming Div. I sectional tennis tournament. She finished fifth in voting and only the top four players are seeded.

“It was a nod of respect to Allison for what she’s accomplished this year,” Cooper said. “Allison is in the same quadrant as the fourth seed (sophomore Reinhard of Milford, 15-3), as are a lot of quality players who want a shot to knock off the four seed and have a chance to make districts in probably the toughest sectional in the Ohio D-I tennis. In most sectionals around the state, Allison would be seeded and expected to make districts.”
