LIMA — Shawnee left very little doubt as to who had the best tennis team in the Western Buckeye League this season.

The Indians, who won the regular season with a 9-0 record, won 58 out of a possible 60 points as they claimed the WBL tournament championship Saturday at the University of Northwest Ohio tennis courts.

Marley Evans and Ella Atkinson got the Indians off to a quick start when they claimed the title, and 12 points, in second doubles. Evans and Atkinson defeated Wapakoneta’s Alyssa Good and Casey Minning 6-3, 6-2 to claim the victory after besting Grace Dicke and Bailey Lininger from St. Marys in the semifinals by a score of 6-3, 6-3.

In first doubles, the Shawnee duo of Sanjana Rajasekaran and Katie Clark took a 6-2, 6-1 win over Allie Lehman and Christina Harting from Celina to claim 12 more points. Rajasekaran and Clark advanced to the finals with a 6-3, 6-2 semi-final win over the duo of Olivia Kline and Paige Moonshower from Van Wert.

Ruby Bolon of Bath slowed down the Indians express when she claimed the third singles title with her 7-6 (7-2), 6-4 victory over Kinmi Ojo from Shawnee. Bolon claimed 12 points for Bath while Ojo added 10 more points to the Shawnee total.

“I’m happy, I worked hard to have a chance to play and win.” Bolon said. “It was good match and Kunmi played really good; it was a hard match, I’m glad I won.”

Second singles saw Aria Patel of Shawnee claim the win with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Jillian Wine from St. Marys. Patel got to the finals after a 6-3, 6-2 victory over Sierra Zuercher from Celina in the semis.

“It feels like I accomplished something important,” Patel said after her win. “It’s a great tournament and I really enjoy playing here.”

Finally, in first singles, Alotus Wei capped the big day for the Indians with a 3-6, 6-4, 6-0 win over Clare Caywood from St. Marys. Caywood was named the recipient of the WBL Sportmanship Award.

“I’m absolutely pleased, all the hard work has paid off and super proud of the girls.” Shawnee coach Nate Higgins said. “The WBL provides a challenge that prepares you for the next level and we will see Wapakoneta again next week in sectional play.”

The final combined regular and tournament standings showed Shawnee first, St. Marys second, Wapakoneta third, Celina fourth, Bath fifth, Van Wert sixth, Elida seventh, Ottawa-Glandorf eighth, Kenton ninth and Defiance 10th.
