News Journal

Wilmington swept the doubles brackets Saturday and won the E Flight in the Greater Cincinnati Tennis Coaches Association Coaches Classic tournament.

Drew Moyer and Brady Henry won the first doubles title with a thrilling 7-6 (7-3), 2-6, 6-2 win over Cole and Green from Oak Hills.

The second doubles pairing of Colt Smith and Mason McIntosh went the less thrilling but equally impressive rout to the championship with a 6-3, 6-3 over Kelhoffer and Roell of LaSalle.

The team title came down to the Henry-Moyer match.

“They were the last match of the entire tournament and we knew they had to win for us to squeak out first place,” WHS coach Steve Reed said. “That was a good Oak Hills team they beat that only had a couple other losses on the season.”

Wilmington finished with 270 points while runnerup Little Miami had 265. The Panthers swept all three singles courts.

Oak Hills was third with West Clermont fourth, Harrison fifth and LaSalle sixth.

Also of note, New Richmond won the Flight D title and Western Brown won the Flight F crown to give the SBAAC American Division three Coaches Classic team champions.

“Good day for SBC tennis,” Reed said.

Jack Romer finished as the runnerup in the third singles bracket.

Avery Bradshaw was third in the second singles bracket.

Johnathan Fender did not place in the first singles bracket.
