R.J. Reynolds (4-A), Cardinal Gibbons (3-A) take men's tennis titles

May 22, 2011
North Carolina



BURLINGTON -- Winston-Salem R.J. Reynolds won its second consecutive state championship in convincing fashion on Saturday in the 21st annual North Carolina High School Athletic Association state men's dual team tennis championships at the Burlington Tennis Center.

Reynolds, in its third straight 4-A championship match, blanked East Chapel Hill by a 5-0 count, the match halted when the Demons clinched the title. Despite the final score, it was very competitive, as three sets went to a tiebreaker.

Robbie Mudge of R.J. Reynolds, who had won the 4-A singles title last weekend, was a straight set winner over East's Peter McDonald at the number-one slot.

East Chapel Hill made its 12th appearance in the dual team finals and has previously won eight state dual team titles, the last one in 2008. The Wildcats ended with a 19-2 mark while Reynolds wrapped up a 21-1 campaign.

Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons swept all six singles matches in blanking Charlotte Catholic 6-0 for the 3-A championship. Matt Daly of Gibbons defeated Kyle Johnson of Catholic, who won the 3-A singles title last weekend, in the number-one singles and the Crusaders rolled from there.

Gibbons won for the 26th time in 28 starts while Catholic finished its season 11-5 in dual team play.
