New Richmond is SBC-A girls tennis co-champs

Clermont County’s high school varsity girls tennis teams have called it a season, but some of the squads certainly experienced some measures of success.

New Richmond’s Lions enjoyed the standout season of the county’s contingents by earning a share of the Southern Buckeye Conference American Division championship. The Lions tied Western Brown’s Broncos with whom the Red and Black split the two games they played opposite each other during the regular conference season.

Batavia endured some beatings outside the Southern Buckeye Conference (SBC), but back within the friendly confines of the SBC, the Bulldogs earned second place in the National Division of the conference.

“They had a lot of growth in their game as the season went along,” said head coach Tami Rodriguez.

The Bulldogs’ mentor noted that sophomore first singles Nikki Staton was “greatly improved throughout the season.”
