[/BYCREDIT]If Selena Ocasio is after something, it’s legitimacy. 
And on Tuesday afternoon she may have found just that as Washington knocked off traditional Public League power Masterman en route to capturing its first ever league title with a 3-2 win at Legacy Tennis Center.
Ocasio, a senior, has won 40 straight regular season matches and knocked off Masterman’s Katherine Loboda, 6-1, 6-2 at first singles.
“Especially at my school, tennis comes last,” said Ocasio. “It feels good to have respect now and make people notice.”
Ocasio was aided by Christina Little’s 6-2, 6-0 win at second singles and Olyma Hamrukalavo and Roksalana Dyak’s 6-1, 6-1 at second doubles.
Head coach Adam Bachmann announced before the season that he is stepping down after the season due to other obligations. He said the team will be honored by the student body on Wednesday morning at the Northeast school.
Ocasio’s sister, Kiara, is a former Catholic League champion and now plays Division III for Hobart Williams and Smith.
“It was four years in the making trying to make this happen,” said Ocasio. “We knew this was our year to do it.”
