BURLINGTON — Raleigh Broughton completed a perfect 24-0 season as the Caps won the state 4-A title on Saturday morning in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state women’s dual team tennis championships at the Burlington Tennis Center.
Broughton rolled past previously unbeaten Greensboro Grimsley by a 5-1 count, winning four of the six singles matches in straight sets. The Caps were led by number-one singles player Maggie Kane, who won the 4-A singles championship in the individual tournament last weekend.
Broughton was in the women’s dual team finals for a record 15th time and won its record 11th championship. Grimsley (20-1), whose lone winner was Alex Silver in the number-two singles, was the defending champion.
In the 1-A final, Mount Airy rolled past Durham’s North Carolina School of Science and Math 5-0, winning all five of the singles matches which were completed in straight sets and only losing six games total in those five.
Jordan Jackson, Mount Airy’s number-one player in singles, was the state runner-up in the individual tournament last week.
Mount Airy ended the season at 22-2 overall while NCSSM finished 15-4.
The 2-A and 3-A championships are being played Saturday afternoon.
