NEW HAVEN — Stonington High’s Gabby Dellacono advanced to the finals of the State Open girls tennis tournament with a straight-sets victory over Izzy Koziol of Wilton on Tuesday at Yale University.

Dellacono, the top seed, defeated the fifth-seeded Koziol, 7-5, 6-1.

She will face No. 6 Alyssa DiMaio of Staples in the finals on Wednesday at 4 p.m. at the Connecticut Tennis Center at Yale. DiMaio topped No. 2 Madeline DeNucci of Glastonbury, 6-3, 6-1, on Tuesday.

Dellacono is 75-4 in her high school career.
