Kennard-Dale girls roll into District 3 2-A tennis semis; other Wednesday prep results
The Kennard-Dale girls’ tennis team is two wins away from a District 3 Class 2-A championship.
The fourth-seeded Rams advanced to the district semifinals on Wednesday with a 3-0 quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Lancaster Country Day at RCW Athletic Club in Lancaster.
K-D (11-1) got straight-set victories at No. 1 singles (Brianna Serruto) and at No. 1 doubles (Katie Hayward/Leah Jacobs) and No. 2 doubles (Hailey Marslett/Hailey Serruto). LCD fell to 11-4.
The Rams were also leading the matches at No. 2 singles (Grace Maccarelli) and at No. 3 singles (MacKenzie Warner), but those matches were not finished once the team outcome was determined.
In Monday’s semifinals at 2 p.m. at Hershey Racquet Club, K-D will take on top-seeded Conrad Weiser (12-0), which earned a 3-0 win over eighth-seeded Lancaster Catholic (9-5) on Wednesday.

Trinity (16-1) will face third-seeded Wyomissing (13-1) in the other district 2-A semifinal at 3:30 p.m. Monday at HRC.
