REDDING -- As the best player on the Wilton High School girls tennis team, it's not very often Maddi Stow gets to clinch a match for her Warriors team. In fact, after overwhelming many of her opponents from her slot in first singles, Stow was usually one of the first players off the court as her Warriors racked up 16 wins this season. On Friday afternoon, during Wilton's CIAC Class M championship showdown match against next-door neighbor Weston, Stow was finally in a position to clinch a match and it just happened to give the Warriors their second straight state championship. With Wilton sweeping the doubles competition to take a 3-0 lead on Weston, Stow soon thereafter put the finishing touches on a 6-1, 6-2 victory over the Trojans' Cayla Koch, leading the Warriors to a 5-2 victory at the Joel Barlow High School tennis courts. "I was thinking about that when I came off. It was perfect timing," said Stow, who earned the No. 4 seed for the State Open Singles Championship tournament, which begins on Saturday. "We were really excited to see what our doubles did. All of the doubles were off before our singles, which never happens." Wilton head coach Mike Racanelli -- who took the job after previous coach Mike Gillespie led the Warriors to the 2013 title -- was pleased that Stow, a sophomore, got to clinch the match, but expected any of his Warriors to be able to do it. "My gosh, it was cool for her and cool for the whole team, but it could be any one of us," said Racanelli. "I call it a Level 10 -- all 10 of our starters have to be in it mentally and physically, 100 percent of the way. We were Level 10 (in a 5-2 win over Barlow in the semifinals) and we were Level 10 today." It was Wilton's third doubles team that staked the Warriors to a 1-0 lead as Leigh Culnane and Emma Stow posted a 6-1, 6-3 win over Weston's Julia Weisman and Ava Pucci. Soon after, Wilton's second doubles tandem of Bridget Cott and Ally Shay walked off with a 6-2, 6-1 win over McKenzie Murray and Eugenie Portner to make it 2-0. The first doubles team of Kaitlyn Zheng and Taylor Ingerman made it a three-point lead when topped Weston's Kristen Rivera and Abby Roth by a 6-1, 7-5 tally. Against Barlow on Tuesday, two of Wilton's doubles teams fell down a set before storming back. This time around, it was a much easier day. "It was important for us to set the tone today," said Cott, a junior co-captain. "I knew we had some hard matches against Barlow, but today we just had to come out and execute. I thought we were going to rely on our doubles today. We took that pressure and turned it into a success." Seconds after Ingerman and Zheng walked off the court, Maddi Stow wrapped up her effort over Koch, a nearly flawless on-court showing. "I felt really good," said Stow. "I was definitely ready to go." With the championship clinched in Wilton's favor, Weston still refused to stop fighting. At second singles, Weston junior Andi Rosenblatt -- who has lost just one match all season -- fought off a tough effort from Wilton's Brooke Connolly to pull out a 6-4, 7-5 win. Later, with all other matches cleared, the Trojans' Sarah Greisman went three sets with Wilton's Sara Steinberg before emerging victorious with a 6-3, 4-6, 6-1 win. "I figured we needed a doubles win and we just didn't get it," said Weston head coach John Martellino. "But I'm very proud of the girls. We peaked at the end of the season, so I'm really happy." Maya Seshan of Wilton earned the team's fifth point with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Weston's Sarah Finkel. The championship match pitted Wilton -- the biggest Class M school -- against Weston -- the smallest school in Class M, which was one student larger than the Class S cutoff. The two teams met in the regular season with Wilton eking out a 4-3 victory. The Trojans had coasted through the state tournament, posting 7-0 wins over East Lyme, Farmington and Sheehan to get to the finals. "They had a lot of success in Class S, so I didn't know what to expect," said Martellino, referring to Weston's five-year run of state championships from 2007-11. "We went to the finals of SWC and came into the tournament and didn't know a lot about those teams. Then we won those matches 7-0 and everything was working out, but we knew Wilton was going to be tough." The Warriors battled against Lauralton Hall (6-1), Guilford (4-3) and Joel Barlow (5-2) in a contentious and intense semifinal. "I felt like those matches where we had to struggle -- and they were intense at times -- but I thought it was going to set us up well," said Racanelli. "We played some great teams to get here and Weston is a great team. The girls were really motivated today." After losing a plethora of important seniors a year ago, when Wilton won its first state title since 1997, the Warriors came into this season with a young team -- with just one senior amongst its 10 on-court players. In the end, though, the result was the same. "I'm so proud of our team," said Connolly, a senior captain. "We didn't know what was going to happen going into the season, but we set our goal and I'm so proud of them. We played our hearts out in every single match." And in the final match of the 2014 season, Wilton won its 13th state tennis championship.
