During yesterday’s session of the Ohio House of Representatives, State Representative Mark Romanchuk (R-Ontario) presented House resolutions to Lexington High School’s boys and girls tennis teams for winning their respective state championships.

Last fall, the girls team won the state championship by defeating Columbus Academy in the finals. The boys team bested Columbus Academy in their final and captured the state title this spring.

“These teams share the characteristics of strong work ethic, good sportsmanship, and a commitment to their teammates and their school,” said Rep. Romanchuk. “I am pleased to congratulate the teams for continuing the strong tennis tradition at Lexington, becoming just the eighth school in the 38-year history of the state tennis tournament to capture both the boys and girls titles.”

The victory marked the third-consecutive championship for the girls team. The boys team won the championship in 2004 and had advanced to the Final Four in each of the past six seasons.

Both teams are coached by seven-time state champion coach Ron Schaub.
