CENTERVILLE – The Wilmington High School tennis season ended Friday at the Division I sectional tournament at Centerville High School.
Kristina Walt and Sydney Johnston lost in three sets in the second round. The two sets they lost both went to tiebreakers, WHS head coach Doug Cooper said.
“I’m really proud of how well we played,” Cooper said. “Overall I was pleased with our play.”
Allie Kees won a match over a player from Lebanon then was ousted by the No. 1 seed from Middletown. Sophie Reed was knocked out in the first round and Zane Bekheet won a singles match before being eliminated.
Brooklyn Nielsen and Emma Schroeder lost a tough 6-4, 6-4 match to a pair from Miamisburg.
“Allie played some of her best tennis of the season,” said Cooper. “Zane came from behind in her first match to win in straight sets. Our second doubles team (Walt and Johnston) very nearly made it through the second round. They just wouldn’t quit.”
Cooper said Reed finished her four-year varsity career in sixth place on the WHS girls tennis all-time wins list.
“We’re going to miss her next year,” the coach said.
