The St. Xavier and Sacred Heart tennis teams moved onto the state semifinals Saturday with victories in the sectional championships.

St. X defeated Trinity in the sectional title match and defeated Marion County in the sectional semifinals. The Tigers defeated both teams 3-0 and will face Ashland Blazer in the state semifinals.

Against Trinity, St. X’s Coleman Cox/Nick Quinones defeated Austin Strause/Tommy McConville 6-2, 6-3. Brandon Lancaster defeated Jack Allen 6-0, 6-0, and Drew Singerman defeated John May 6-0, 6-0. The other two matches were called because St. X only needed three wins.

Sacred Heart defeated Manual 3-1 in the sectional title match and North Oldham 3-0 in the sectional semifinals. The Valkyries will face McCracken County in the state semifinals.

The state semifinals for girls’ will be at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday and the boys’ semifinal is at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. Both semifinals will be played at the University of Kentucky’s Downey Tennis Complex.
