COLLEGEVILLE -- Ellie Black of Litchfield won the Section 5A singles title Tuesday.

Black topped Michaela Boesche in the semifinals and then swept Amanda Radel of New London-Spicer 6-0, 6-0 in the final to win the title.

Both players will advance to the state Class A girls tournament Oct. 28-29 at Reed Sweatt Family Tennis Center in Minneapolis.

"She's worked really hard at it," Litchfield coach Matt Draeger said of Black. "The section is really tough in singles and she's withstood that."

Litchfield's Anna Johnson and Alissa Holmgren reached the semifinals, but lost to eventual champions Kelly Johnson and Kaytlin Kuefler of Annandale. They would recover to win the third-place match in straight sets.
