Defending singles champ Maggie Kane of Raleigh Broughton moved closer to her second consecutive championship with a pair of straight set victories and will face Bailey Springs of Holly Springs in the semifinals.

In doubles, defending champions Sammi Smith and Jordan Strickland of Cary Panther Creek had a pair of easy wins, taking two of their four sets at love. The Panther Creek pair will face Raleigh Broughton’s Adrienne Overcash and Alison Austin in the semifinals. The Cary team of Jamie Rogers and Hannah Jabusch did not drop a single game en route to their two straight-set victories.
