MASON — Going into Friday, Milton-Union’s doubles team of Shannon Brumbaugh and Taylor Falb was still alive at the Division II district tennis tournament after Thursday’s play at the Lindner Family Tennis Center, winning its first match but then seeing its second-round match rained out.
Brumbaugh, a freshman, and Falb, a junior, defeated Seven Hills’ Sohanna Thompson and Wendy Woffington 6-2, 6-1 in the first round and were set to face Indian Hill’s Jenny Zhang and Lexi Larsen in the second round when the rain came. That match took place late Friday, with the winner qualifying for next week’s state tournament.
For Tippecanoe, the season came to an end before the rains postponed play. In singles, senior Dakota Schroeder won her first-round match over Chaminade Julienne’s Patty Estrada-Sanchez, 6-2, 6-1. But in the get-to-state match, Schroeder was defeated by Indian Hill’s Brooke Arington, 6-3, 6-2. In addition, Tippecanoe junior Mira Patel lost her first-round match to Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy’s Lynn Kader, 6-1, 6-0.
And in doubles, senior Amelia Zweizig and sophomore Eliza Zweizig lost their first-round match to Mariemont’s Lucy Neville and Caroline Soller in three tough sets, 6-2, 2-6, 6-4.
