CARRBORO, CARDINAL GIBBONS, BISHOP MCGUINNESS, WAKEFIELD WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS IN NCHSAA MEN’S DUAL TEAM TENNIS

BURLINGTON — The third time was the charm for Carrboro on Saturday in the
North Carolina High School Athletic Association’s 24th annual state men’s dual team finals at the Burlington Tennis Center.

Carrboro had earned its way into the 2-A championship match for the last two years only to lose in the final, but this time the Jaguars left little doubt by downing Brevard 5-0 for the state crown.

Carrboro swept the five singles matches that were completed, led by number-one player Max Fritsch, who was named the Most Valuable Player of the championship. The Jaguars won their first dual team title and finished 16-2 overall while Brevard lost for the first time in 19 dual matches.

Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons dispatched Waxhaw Marvin Ridge 6-0 for the 3-A crown, sweeping all six singles matches in straight sets. Robert Kelly of Gibbons, who won the state 3-A singles title last weekend, beat George Lovitt at the number one slot, 6-2, 6-4, and was named the match MVP.

Gibbons won its fourth consecutive 3-A crown and finished its season at 25-4 while Marvin Ridge wound up 19-3.

Raleigh Wakefield rolled to a 5-0 victory over Winston-Salem R.J. Reynolds for the 4-A championship. Bo Boyden, Wakefield’s number-one singles player and the 4-A singles state champion from last weekend’s tournament, beat Bennett Crane in straight sets and was chosen as the MVP.

Wakefield finished a perfect 23-0 dual match season while Reynolds, in the finals for the sixth consecutive year, ended the year at 22-2.

In the 1-A championship, Kernersville Bishop McGuinness won pro set tiebreakers after splitting sets in two of the singles matches, beating Raleigh Charter by a 5-2 count.

Sam McLaughry of Bishop, who won at the number-one singles by scoring a 14-12 tiebreaker victory after splitting sets with Abichiran Baskaran, was the MVP.

Bishop McGuinness finished the season 15-1 in dual matches while Raleigh Charter posted a 12-1 mark.
