Wilton girls tennis teams romps in state opener

The Wilton High girls tennis team opened the Class M state tournament with a 7-0 victory over visiting Ledyard in a qualifying-round match on Sunday.

The seventh-seeded Warriors will now meet 10th-seed East Lyme in the first round on Tuesday in Wilton.

The winner of that contest advances to the quarterfinals on Wednesday against either second-seed Nonnewaug or 15th-seed Joel Barlow.

Wilton (14-5) entered the state tournament following a loss to New Canaan in the FCIAC quarterfinals.
