SALISBURY, CARDINAL GIBBONS, PANTHER CREEK, MOUNT AIRY WIN NCHSAA WOMEN’S DUAL TEAM TENNIS

BURLINGTON – Salisbury rolled to its sixth consecutive state title in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state women’s dual team tennis championships Saturday at the Burlington Tennis Center.

Salisbury captured a 5-1 victory over Durham North Carolina School of Science and Math in the 2-A final, losing only at number-one singles and then sweeping the rest of the singles matches.

The Hornets were in the finals for the ninth straight year and are now 10-3 in NCHSAA women’s dual team state finals. Salisbury finished with an 18-3 dual team mark while Science and Math suffered its first loss in 18 dual matches.

NCSSM made its fifth consecutive state championship appearance in two different classifications.

Cary Panther Creek swept the top five singles to grab a 5-1 victory over Charlotte Ardrey Kell in the 4-A championship, dealing Ardrey Kell its first loss of the dual-team season after 15 straight wins.

The Panther Creek wins included triumphs at number two and number three by Sammi Smith and Jordan Strickland, respectively. The pair had teamed to win the state doubles title last weekend.

Panther Creek finished 21-1 overall and won its first NCHSAA women’s dual team tennis title.

In the 3-A final, Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons lost at the number-one singles and then swept the remaining singles for a convincing 5-1 victory over Weddington.

Weddington’s Heidi Swope, who won the NCHSAA state 3-A singles title last weekend, won her match at love but the Crusaders won all but one of the remaining matches in straight sets.

Gibbons finished a 28-1 dual-team season and won their second NCHSAA dual team crown in five finals appearances. Weddington wound up 13-5 in dual matches.

Mount Airy had little trouble in rolling to a 6-0 victory over Raleigh Charter in the 1-A championship, giving the Bears their third consecutive state title.
