MURFREESBORO – For the first time since 2009 for high school girls and the first time since 2016 on the boys’ side – besides the lost COVID-19 season in 2020 –Williamson County teams aren’t in the large schools state tennis team championships this week.

The Ravenwood girls fell Tuesday at the Adams Tennis Complex 5-0 against Science Hill, while the Brentwood boys suffered a 4-1 defeat against defending state champion Collierville. Both matches were in the state semifinals.

The Brentwood girls claimed the team title last year, while Collierville topped Ravenwood in the boys’ final.

Two-time defending state singles champion Ranjay Arul set the tone for Collierville Tuesday with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Evan Ly at No. 1.

The Bruins Stephen Smith battled to a 7-6 (5), 6-0 win at No. 3 for Brentwood over Aneech Achanta, but Collierville collected straight set wins in the other three singles matches.

Ravenwood’s Grace Stout at No. 1 was the only Raptor to take a set against Science Hill.

The singles and doubles championships continue Thursday and Friday at Adams Tennis Complex.
