The Wilmington Area Tennis Association middle school team defeated Troy 4-1 in the final match of the season.
Coach Cathy Fay said Jenna Taylor’s match was one that was closely contested with Taylor rallying then falling in a “very exciting match” 9-7.
The middle schoolers will play in a tournament Saturday at the Schroeder Center in Tipp City, Fay said.
“Some of the best teams in the area will be there,” said Fay.
The WATA squad, which won the tournament in 2017, will compete in the Gold Division, which is the most competitive division according to Fay.
