Women's Tennis: Top 6 Players Advance in Individual Playoffs

For the Cap 8 "Individuals" Conference Tournament, Broughton was well represented with our top six players advancing to Regionals.

Congratulations to #1 seeded doubles team Katie Kane and Maggie Kane, the Cap 8 doubles champions! The Kanes beat the #2 seeded doubles team Kelsey Boole and Asha Iyengar (also a Broughton team!) in the finals.

#5 seeded freshman Kara Summerford lost in the singles semi-final round to the #1 seed from Millbrook, Lauren McCorquodale. It was a hard fought match that went to three close sets: 6-4, 6-7, 4-6.

After winning the first set, #2 Seeded player Sarah King was forced to retire in the final match against Lauren McCorquodale, due to a painful leg cramp. Thankfully, she has recovered and is looking forward to getting back out on the court next week!

Great playing from all of our top 6, as they move on to compete regionally. "Dual team" playoffs begin next week, where Broughton will compete as a team on 6 singles courts and 3 doubles courts in an effort to retain our state championship title. Our first team match will be Tuesday, October 18. Here we go, Caps!
