WILMINGTON – With a solid effort from top to bottom, the Wilmington High School tennis team defeated Fairmont 3-2 Wednesday in the Ohio Tennis Coaches Association Division I state team tennis tournament on the WHS courts.
“It’s a win that should put us back on the radar for other teams in the area,” WHS head coach Steve Reed said. “We have great depth and high quality doubles players. With this win, other programs should take notice.”
Up next for Wilmington in the state team tournament is either Bellbrook or Cincinnati St. Xavier. A date for the third round match has not been set, Reed said.
Reed called freshman Avery Bradshaw’s performance at third singles, a 6-4, 6-4 win, “clutch.”
The coach added Mason McIntosh and Jack Romer at second doubles “fought off a comeback to close it out and clinch the match.”
Brady Henry and Drew Moyer posted a 6-4, 6-2 win at first doubles.
“We have been shaky at a couple of courts the last few years but this year I have played six different lineups in six matches which speaks to our depth,” said Reed.
Wilmington is 5-1 on the year. Fairmont is 3-2.
