Knemeyers get top seed at tennis sectional


XENIA — Yellow Springs seniors Ethan and Jason Knemeyer earned the No. 1-seed at the Troy Division II Boys Tennis Sectional.

It is the second consecutive year the Knemeyers will be the top-seeded doubles team in the sectional.

The duo were district qualifiers in 2022 and made the quarterfinals, ending up one win short of qualifying to state.

They have an opening round bye and await the winner of a match between teams representing Northwestern and Bellefontaine and need two wins to get back to districts.

Also entering are teammates Luka Sage-Frabotta and Tallis Onfroy-Curley. They face a team from Urbana in the opening round on the opposite side of the bracket and would need to eventually defeat the No. 2-seed from Milton Union to reach districts.

Amongst Greene County schools, three singles and two doubles teams got top-four seeds in their respective sectional draws.

Michael Page of Beavercreek and Daniel Songer of Bellbrook are No. 3 and 4 in the D-I singles tournament at Centerville. Page has a bye into the round of 32, where Songer will face a player from Springboro.

The D-II Centerville tournament sees Carroll’s Chase Collins as the four-seed. He awaits the winner between players from East Clinton and Valley View.

The other doubles squad is Noah Ehret and Deven Wells of Beavercreek competing in the D-I sectional at Centerville. They are the No. 2-seed and have an opening round bye.
