MASON — Jason Prince made his third straight trip to the Division II state tennis tournament only to meet with the same fate.

The Fairland Dragons’ senior tennis standout headed for the University of Charleston played well but dropped two tough sets to Justin Csepe of Norton 6-3, 6-4.

The tournament was held at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason instead of at Ohio State University.

Last year, Prince battled Brayen Streng of Sandusky only to lose in three sets, 7-5, 3-6, 6-1.

As a sophomore, Prince faced Alex Seibel of Celina and fell in a grueling match as he lost 7-5, 6-7 (3-7), 7-6 (8-6).

Prince has been the Division II district champion all three years.
