Staples girls tennis tops Greenwich, faces Glastonbury for Class L crown today

The Staples Wreckers are one step away from a girls tennis state championship repeat.

The top-seeded Wreckers (24-1) won their third straight playoff match, as they rolled over the Greenwich Cardinals, 6-1, in the CIAC Class L semifinals Wednesday in Westport.

Staples will now square off against the third-seeded Glastonbury Tomahawks (19-1) for the Class L crown at 3 p.m., Thursday, at the Amity High School courts. Amity is hosting all three state class finals this spring.

Glastonbury knocked off No. 23 Westhill, 5-2, in Wednesday’s semis.

Staples has been dominant in the state tournament, winning its three matches by a combined score of 18-3. The Wreckers shut out No. 17 Newtown 7-0 in the first round, and topped No. 8 Wilton 5-2, before facing Greenwich in the semis.
