NCHSAA tennis roundup: Charlotte Catholic, Salisbury win state titles

SALISBURY, CHARLOTTE CATHOLIC
BROUGHTON, MOUNT AIRY WIN NCHSAA WOMEN'S DUAL TEAM TENNIS

            BURLINGTON -- Salisbury earned its fifth consecutive state championship on Saturday afternoon in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state women's dual team tennis championships at the Burlington Tennis Center.
            The Hornets rolled past Greene Central by a 5-0 score in the 2-A final, winning all the completed matches in straight sets and taking five of those sets at love.
            Salisbury was in the finals for the 12th time and captured its ninth NCHSAA state dual team title, finishing the season with a 21-2 mark. Greene Central was in the finals for the 11th time with a pair of previous state championships and wound up 21-3 overall.
            The 3-A final was the closest of the day, with unbeaten Nash Central and Charlotte Catholic splitting 3-3 in singles action and two of the matches going to the third-set tiebreaker.
            But Catholic won the second and third doubles contests to take a 5-3 victory, improving its final season record to 20-6. The Cougars have now nine NCHSAA championships in 10 trips to the dual team finals.
            Nash Central lost for the first time this season after 19 consecutive wins.
            In morning championships, Raleigh Broughton completed a perfect 24-0 season as the Caps won the state 4-A title. Broughton rolled past previously unbeaten Greensboro Grimsley by a 5-1 count, winning four of the six singles matches in straight sets,. The Caps were led by number-one singles player Maggie Kane, who won the 4-A singles championship in the individual tournament last weekend.
            Broughton was in the women's dual team finals for a record 15th time and won a record 11th championship. Grimsley (20-1), whose lone winner was Alex Silver in the number-two singles, was the defending champion.
            In the 1-A final, Mount Airy rolled past Durham's North Carolina School of Science and Math 5-0, winning all five of the singles matches which were completed in straight sets and only losing six games total in those five.
            Jordan Jackson, Mount Airy's number-one player in singles, was the state runner-up in the individual tournament last week.
            Mount Airy ended the season at 22-2 overall while NCSSM finished 15-4.
