Caps Tennis takes conference title

Broughton senior Alex Pollock won the singles championship at the Cap 8 conference tournament held on Tuesday and Wednesday.  It was an all-Broughton final, as Alex battled teammate Carlton Bunn 6-3, 6-4 for the conference crown.  Freshmen Taylor Boole and Campbell Stone outlasted a team of seniors from Wakefield to win the consolation finals of the doubles competition in three sets, winning the third set in a tiebreaker.  All of these players along with Andrew Waddell and Patrick Longest in doubles now move on to the Mideast Regional tournament taking place next weekend at Millbrook Exchange Park.

The tennis team will play in the first round of the dual team state playoffs on Tuesday, when they will play the winner of the Midsouth Conference (likely Pine Crest High School in Pinehurst).  The Caps are on a roll and all six players are playing with determination in their quest for the state title.  Let's go Caps!!!
