Sophomore Kolton DeBoard (serving), senior Luke Morris (foreground) and the Connersville Spartans will play Rushville for the sectional tennis championship at 10 a.m. Saturday at the CHS courts. DeBoard and Morris won their 1 doubles match 6-0, 6-0 over their Franklin County opponents Thursday night at CHS.

The Connersville Spartan mens tennis team completed the first step on their way to a sectional championship with a 4 match, straight set sweep of the Franklin County Wildcats at the CHS courts Thursday night.

The shorthanded Wildcats didn’t field a 2 doubles team meaning Franklin County would have needed to win 3 of the 4 matches played to advance to Saturday morning’s sectional final. The Spartans dispatched the Wildcats, dropping only 2 games between the 4 matches.
