The 3-time defending state champions in Division II girls tennis once again earned a spot in the final four with a win over Clyde on Tuesday, as Lady Lex defeated the Fliers for the district title.

Lexington senior Nicole Dragos cruised through her singles match 6-0, 6-0 over Emi Bowers to grab the teams first win of the match. Then fellow senior Elise Betscher finished off Andrea Nearhood shortly after 6-0, 6-0 and junior Jillian Earnest wrapped up the match with a 6-1, 6-0 victory over Desiree Booner.

Lexington sisters Courtney and Maya Ahmed also took their doubles match off Brooke Smith and Clara Sewell 6-2, 6-1, but Alex Griebling and Jordyn Traxler's match with Amanda Cahill and Lexi Weber would be called early, after both teams won a set 6-3.

 Lexington will next face the top team in Division II in the state semi's, when Lady Lex travels to Reynoldsburg for a showdown with Hathaway Brown. The Blazer defeated Lexington back in September 4-1, and have not lost a team match since August.

The team agreed that Hathaway Brown will be a very difficult test, but believe they can knock them off with a solid performance. Lexington returned all but one player from last season's state championship team and think with the addition of Traxler and added experience that this years team is even better.
