Connersville Boys Tennis Sectional Recap- Spartans win 3rd straight, Wildcats’ Stirn advances

Connersville Boys Tennis Sectional Recap ending Saturday, October 3

At Connersville, the Spartans successfully defended their title for their third straight championship, beating Rushville 3-2 in the semis and Franklin County 3-2 in the finals.  Franklin County’s Jack Stirn also advances in the singles individual tournament by winning at first singles.

Edited report from Connersville’ coach Chris Bloom- The Spartans beat Rushville 3-2 and did a very good job of staying focused throughout the match.  I am proud of the boys for being consistent, even after a rain delay that lasted over an hour.
