LIMA — Kenton’s Kyle Phillips was the lone winner for Kenton in boys tennis action on the first day of the Division II sectional at the University of Northwestern Ohio.
Phillips was a first round winner over Nick Cunningham of Bath 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-4).
“There’s nothing more exciting in tennis than a third-set tiebreaker,” Kenton coach Dave Cosart said. “Kyle did a nice job as a freshman of keeping his composure and letting his opponent make the mistakes.”
Phillips lost his second round match to second-seeded John Schroeder of Ottawa-Glandorf, 6-0, 6-0.
In other singles action, Bath’s Jason Lauf defeated Jake Abbott 6-0, 6-2 and Celina’s Alex Seibel downed Braxton Kiess 6-0, 6-1.
