Women's Tennis: Broughton Boasts Cap 8 Singles and Doubles Champions
#3 seed Ashley Ramsay won her first two rounds of the tournament. She lost in the semi-finals to #2 seed Suzanne Boyden from Wakefield.
#1 seed Maggie Kane sailed through her first three rounds as well as the finals against Suzanne Boyden to receive the singles conference championship title. Congratulations, Maggie!
#3 seeds Adrienne Overcash and Kara Summerford won their first two rounds and then stunned the #1 seeded Millbrook team, Lauren McCorquodale and Savannah Taranto, beating them in an exciting three set match.
#2 seeds Kelsey Boole and Olivia King won their first two rounds and then beat a talented Enloe team to reach the finals against Adrienne and Kara.
So it was an all-Broughton doubles final, and both teams had to focus hard to compete against their teammates. The match lasted for several hours, starting in the sunny afternoon and finishing well after dinner time under the lights.
Kelsey and Olivia were able to outlast Adrienne and Kara, winning in a decisive third set after the first two sets could have gone either way. Final score: 6-4, 6-7, 6-0. Congratulations, Kelsey and Olivia!
On to Regionals
Because of their strong performance, all six of the Broughton competitors were invited to the Individual Regional Tournament next weekend. Coach Davidson and Coach Frank should be so proud of their accomplishments so far!
Good luck to all individual competitors next weekend. Team playoffs start on Tuesday. Here we go, Caps!
