May 17, 2024 - For the tenth consecutive season, Columbus North girls tennis has earned a sectional title (and 39th overall), this time with a 4-1 victory over Greensburg. North’s number one and number two singles players, Kathryn Wilson and Aya Saad, had no trouble in their matches, each winning 6-0, 6-0. Grace Conner and Lison Cloteaux then followed up with a 6-1, 6-3 victory in number two doubles to take a 3-0 lead and secure the team victory. Things got interesting in the remaining matches. After winning the first set 6-3, three singles player Ayane Umemura dropped her final two sets 3-6, 7-10 as Greensburg closed the gap to 3-1. Lizzie Bodart and Lucy Bergman split the first two sets of their one doubles match, 6-4 and 2-6 before closing out the final set with a 6-4 decision. The Bull Dogs will host the Regional tournament next week and will face East Central in the first round.
