Women's Tennis: Streak in Individuals Tournament Ends

In the 4A Women's Tennis Individuals, Sarah King lost in the final round in a three-set match to Hoggard's McKayla Zupan. Sarah played exceptionally well, and the match showcased the talent of the top players in the state.

Kelsey Boole and Asha Iyengar lost their semi-final match to Grimsley's twin towers, Clare Cox and Roxanne Henshall. Their score was 6-3, 6-2.

Katie and Maggie Kane won their semifinal match against West Forsyth 6-0, 6-1, then went on to meet Grimsley's team in the finals. The Kanes lost a hard fought match 7-6, 6-4.

Coach Laura Davidson says, "No other team was as well represented in the individuals as Broughton, and I am very proud of the girls for their efforts today. They gave it their best. Also, we send our congratulations to Grimsley because their doubles team played as aggressively and as well as any team we have faced all year. The Grimsley coach and their parents were very complimentary of our girls.

"The individuals are now over, and we are going to turn our full attention to our goal of winning a dual team state championship. There are some very tough teams remaining, and we face Green Hope on Monday. We will be ready to take one match at a time in our march to the championship next Saturday."

Here we go, Caps!
