The Miami Trace tennis team won its final match on the courts at the Club at Quail Run Monday, a solid 5-0 romp over Unioto.

Miami Trace will have tennis courts installed on the MTHS campus in time for the girls’ season in August.

“The program hasn’t had one 5-0 win, let alone two, in a long time,” Miami Trace coach Mitch Augenstein said. “The kids have been working so hard. We are very proud of them.”

Miami Trace improves to 5-8 on the season.

On Monday, both schools played their Sectional tournament line-ups.

At first singles, Ely Schirtzinger beat Jacob Shuman, 6-0, 6-2.

At second singles, Todd Peterson defeated Caitlynn McKell, 6-1, 6-1.

At third singles, Riley Evans beat Caroline Thiel, 6-0, 6-0.

At first doubles, Seth Leach teamed with Matt Fender for a 6-0, 6-2 win over Sam Smith and Brett Moore.

Johnathan Allen and Adam Ginn won the second doubles match, 6-3, 6-3 over Tanner Caemeans and Bane Adkins.

In a j-v match, Miami Trace’s Coby Seyfang beat Colton Morton in a pro-set, 8-4.

Miami Trace was at London Tuesday and is at Logan Elm Thursday.

The Division II Sectional tournament is set for Monday and Tuesday, May 9 and 10, in Portsmouth.
