Sophomore Erica Chen of the Worthington Kilbourne High School girls tennis team lost to Hilliard Davidson's Heather Haynes 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 in the first round of singles in the Division I district tournament Oct. 11 at Davidson to end her season.
Chen would have needed to win two matches at district to advance to state, which is being held Friday, Oct. 18, at Ohio State and Saturday, Oct. 19, at Davidson.
Chen was the only district qualifier from Kilbourne or Thomas. She had advanced to district by winning a sectional title Oct. 5 at Pickerington Central, defeating Olentangy's Bri Brdicka 6-2, 6-2 in the final.
