The Delta Eagles finished the 2017 tennis season as the Hoosier Heritage Conference champions, winning their seventh straight HHC title.
The title-clinching win came with a 5-0 victory over Shelbyville last weekend, giving the Eagles boys and girls tennis programs 100 consecutive dual-match victories in HHC play, a streak that began on May 6, 2010. Both the Eagles’ boys and girls teams have won seven consecutive HHC titles during the streak.
Of the 100 wins, 80 have been by 5-0 scores, 17 by 4-1 and three by 3-2.
The Delta girls clinched their 17th HHC title since joining the conference. The Eagles’ boys won their 19th title this past fall. Delta entered the sectional with a 14-3 regular-season record.
Delta won the HHC title with a 7-0 record. Mt. Vernon was second at 6-1. New Palestine was third with a 5-2 mark.
Four HHC schools have advanced to sectional championship matches, to be played May 19. Delta will play Muncie Burris at the Delta sectional, Mt. Vernon and Pendleton Heights will square off at the Mt. Vernon sectional, and Shelbyville will meet Triton Central in the Shelbyville sectional.
