Lady Caps Suffer Back to Back Losses Against Panther Creek and Leesville Road

The Broughton Lady Caps Tennis Team had a hard end to the week suffering an 0-9 loss to Panther Creek on Wednesday and a 2-7 loss to Leesville Road on Thursday. While Panther Creek had been defeated earlier this season by Green Hope, the Cougars showed why they have been consistently in the top of the state rankings by winning all 9 courts. The Caps did not give up easily however with solid performances from seniors Hunter Cox and Shields Bennett and from junior Becca Pharr.

On Thursday the Lady Caps hosted the Leesville Road Lady Pride for their second match of the season. The Lady Caps had great play all around, especially in doubles, but could not overcome unforced errors to take the win. The lightest moment in the match included a brief interruption of the doubles play with a performance from a squirrel dashing across all three courts! Sophomore Meg Hardesty and senior co-captain Shields Bennett earned the Lady Caps' only wins of the match in their respective singles play. The Lady Caps are now 5-4 overall and 5-3 in the Cap 8 conference. Next week, the team travels to Millbrook on Tuesday and hosts Sanderson at home on Thursday.
