Championship Decided In NCHSAA 1-A Women’s Tennis
CARY — Morgan Auger of Kernersville Bishop McGuinness captured the singles championship in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A women’s tennis championships at the Cary Tennis Center on Saturday morning.
Auger downed Julissa Quintanilla of North Duplin 6-1,6-2 in the final. The state champ did not lose a single game on Friday en route to a pair of straight set victories to put her in the championship match. Auger has posted a 19-1 singles record this fall while Quintanilla suffered her first loss in 19 matches.
A doubles team from Misenheimer Gray Stone Day was seeking a third consecutive 1-A state championship, but it was not to be. Courtney Mudge and Marisa Deininger of Community School of Davidson defeated the Gray Stone Day duo of Meghan Hedgepeth and Brooke Herlocker by 6-3, 6-4. The winners improved their doubles record to 19-0 on the season.
Last year Mudge and Deininger both played singles and wound up in the state championship match, with Mudge winning the title.
