TROY — Tippecanoe’s Dakota Schroeder and the Milton-Union doubles team of Shannon Brumbaugh and Taylor Falb won sectional championships at the Division II sectional tournament Saturday in Troy, while the Red Devils’ Mira Patel finished third in the singles bracket.

In the final round, Brumbaugh and Falb upset the Zweizigs in straight sets, 6-3, 6-3, to earn a No. 1 seed for the district tournament.
