The duo of Brylie Rickly and Addison Christine won 6-0, 6-0 at first doubles while Genna Miller and Nadia Chaney won 6-3, 6-3 at second doubles.

The two teams squared off for a second match on the hot day, and West Holmes earned another 5-0 win.

It was a dogfight with OCC newcomer New Philadelphia on Aug. 30, but the Lady Knights were able to pull out a 3-2 win, with a pair of 2 1/2 hour matches making the difference at second singles and second doubles.

Arora Chaney won 6-2, 6-1 at first singles, and Troyer defeated Ella Wherely in an epic match at second singles, pulling out a 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 victory.

“Cuylee hit an amazing approach shot for the win,” Hill said.
