For the fourth year in a row, the Southwestern girls tennis team captured another league title, winning the championship with a 5-0 sweep of Dunkirk in West Division play on Monday.
"We have a very deep team with a nice blend of experience" said Southwestern coach Rod Beckerink.
Each match was decided by a 6-0, 6-0 score by the Lady Trojans (10-0) as Heidi Mueller scored a win over Dunkirk's Crystal Muller, Morgan Johnson shut out Ally Clement in second singles and the duo of Leigh Yartz and Daisie Bancroft downed Sydney Wiant and Nicole Favata.
