Championship Pairings Set In NCHSAA 1-A Women’s Tennis
CARY — Morgan Auger of Kernersville Bishop McGuinness and Julissa Quintanilla of North Duplin won their way into the singles championship match with two wins apiece on Friday in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A women’s tennis championships at the Cary Tennis Center.
Auger did not lose a single game en route to a pair of straight set victories while Quintanilla also won in straight sets, none of which was closer than 6-2.
A doubles team from Misenheimer Gray Stone Day has won the last two 1-A championships, and Brooke Herlocker has been a part of both of those titles. This year she is teaming with Meghan Hedgepeth as the Gray Stone Day pair seeks the school’s third consecutive doubles title, and Herlocker and Hedgepeth have made it to the finals.
The Gray Stone Day pair will face Courtney Mudge and Marisa Deininger of Community School of Davidson for the doubles title.
Championship matches start at nine o’clock Saturday morning.
