When first-year Granville High School girls tennis coach Tammy Breymaier logged onto the Central District's Web site and learned that her team was listed among those which will be competing in the Division II Columbus-area sectional tournaments, she decided to double-check the accuracy of that.

"We had (athletics director) Kevin Jarrett call to make sure there wasn't a mistake," Breymaier said. "It's a little disappointing, sure, but who knows? We may not even end up playing with (Columbus) Academy."

The Blue Aces have been assigned to play in the Dover sectional for the past several years, and last fall they qualified a school-record six players for the district meet.

Depending on what seed the Blue Aces get, however, Breymaier's choices during today's draw meeting at Gahanna will be to play at either the Gahanna or Columbus School for Girls sectional sites. One of those will include Academy, the perennial MSL-Ohio-Cardinal Division champion that usually gobbles up several of the four singles and four doubles berths available for district play at each site. The Vikings took five of the eight spots a year ago at Gahanna and half of them in 2007.

"It'll come down to the luck of the draw," senior Katie Baker said. "That's unfortunate, really, but that's the way it is."

In yet another change, the sectional tournaments in both divisions will be held Oct. 8 and Oct. 10 rather than having both days played consecutively. Newark and Watkins Memorial will compete in the Division I sectional at New Philadelphia, as usual.

"We're going on a Thursday and Saturday this year because the district board decided that having some (singles) players facing three matches on the first day and then maybe two more the next, well, that was too much," said Dan Witteman, who manages the Division I tournament. "Plus, this also allows for a rain day to be built into the schedule. Most coaches seem to be in agreement this is a better set up."

Regardless of what the postseason holds for the Blue Aces, however, they've enjoyed an almost seamless transition under Breymaier, who replaced former coach Keith Mullins this season. They were 10-5 overall following a 5-0 loss to Lancaster last Wednesday after finishing 13-5 last year.

Granville plays Tuesday at Bexley and also is trying to reschedule a postponed match against Wellington for another day this week. The league tournament will be held Saturday at Academy, and the district tournament is Oct. 16-17 at CSG.

"(Assistant) Torey Dougan, who was on Keith's staff last year, has been a big help as I learned about the girls and what their strengths are," Breymaier said. "And I'm real pleased with the leadership we've gotten from our two senior captains (Baker and Anne Hofmeister) and our junior captain (Beth Ginese). Keith left me a lot to work with."

Breymaier unveiled her postseason lineup during the loss to Lancaster with Baker, Lydia Tritschler and Julia Shallenberger playing singles. Ginese and Hofmeister comprise one doubles team while Karoline Keith and Alyssa Ehlers pair up for the other one.

"We'll go play and do our best," Baker said. "No matter what, I think we'll do very well competing for the spots at district."
