McGee vs. McKee for 1-A tennis title

Danielle McGee of Hampstead Topsail will take on Mount Airy¹s Maggie McKee on Saturday morning for the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 1-A women's singles tennis championship.

Both players won a pair of matches on Friday at the Cary Tennis Center on the first day of play, and both had to rally from a set down in one match.

In doubles, the team of Caitlen Corbett and Molly Peele of Misenheimer Gray Stone Day will take on the duo of Jessie Elmore and Brianna Fulp of East Wilkes for the state title.

Corbett and Peele had to come from a set down to beat Eastern champion Lori Wang and Margaret Gaines of Raleigh Charter to advance to the finals.

The finals are scheduled to begin at 9 am at the Cary Tennis Center but will move indoors to courts at North Carolina State University if there is rain Saturday morning.
