SIDNEY — Sidney’s boys tennis team earned its second consecutive dominating victory with a 5-0 win over Stebbins on Wednesday.

Prim Dev won first singles 6-0 and 6-1. Daichi Urata won second singles 6-0, 6-0 and West Carrollton forfeited third singles.

Logan Searcy and Michael Ferree won first doubles 6-0 and 6-0 and Jersain Brux and Nobel Zhou won second doubles 6-0, 3-0 (West Carrollton retired).

Lehman Catholic 4, Milton Union 1

Lehman Catholic beat Milton-Union on Wednesday. The Cavaliers improved to 3-3, while Milton-Union dropped to 3-1.

“Huge win for our team tonight to knock off an unbeaten Milton team,” Lehman coach Tim Ungericht said. “It’s our first win over them in four years. Big win by Griffin (West) at first singles to move to 5-1 on his season and good win by Sam (Ritze) and Danny (Lins) at first doubles as well. Huge win by Ryan (Goettemoeller) at second singles in the deciding match after dropping the first set.

“Their one and two singles players are among the best in the area and were district qualifiers who were one match from making the state tourney in doubles last year so it’s a huge win for our team. Gives us confidence and momentum especially coming off of tough losses the last couple of nights.”

In singles, Griffin West defeated Nathan Brumbaugh 6-4, 6-2; Ryan Goettemoeller defeated Nick Brumbaugh 2-6, 6-2, 6-2; and Cole Kramer lost to Peyton Brown 6-3, 6-1.
