Mason, ranked No. 1 in The Enquirer’s Division I area coaches’ poll, defeated No. 2 Sycamore 3-2 in the Southwest Division I girls’ district finals Tuesday and advances to the Ohio Tennis Coaches’ Association state team final four in Columbus on Oct. 19.
Mason senior Lynn Kelly faced Sycamore sophomore Maggie Skwara in the deciding match. Kelly came back to win 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 to give the Comets the win. Mason remained perfect at 20-0.
“That was one of the best high school tennis matches I have been a part of,” Mason coach Mike Reid said. “It was a great tennis match between two teams of hardworking, hard fighting tennis players. Lynn Kelly and Maggie Skwara are two great warriors on the tennis court.”
