SALISBURY, CARDINAL GIBBONS 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 morning at the Burlington Tennis Center.

Salisbury captured a 5-1 victory over Durham North Carolina School of Science and Math, 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 all-time 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.

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.

The 1-A and 4-A finals are being played Saturday afternoon.
