Congratulations to our top six players for their excellent play at the Mid-Eastern Regionals this past weekend!

Asha Iyengar and Kelsey Boole played fantastic tennis and beat East Chapel Hill's number 1 doubles team in a tough three set match on Saturday. It was only the seventh time that Kelsey and Asha had played together, and they certainly pulled together to communicate and win. Kelsey and Asha moved onto the finals where they lost to the defending 4A Doubles Champions, Katie and Maggie Kane. The Kanes are once again proving to be the team to beat, and they played rock-solid tennis, including a tough first-round match against another East Chapel Hill doubles team.

In singles, a special congratulations to senior Sarah King for overcoming number one seed Megan Smith, then Audrey Channel, to claim the Regional singles crown. Sarah played some of her best tennis of the year. Kara Summerford missed qualifying for the States by one round, but played well despite a knee injury. Sarah, Katie, Maggie, Asha, and Kelsey will go on to compete in the State Individual Finals at Millbrook Exchange Park this weekend.

Tomorrow, the Caps take on East Chapel Hill in the 2nd round of dual team playoffs. Go Caps!
