Panther Creek girls tennis get boost from freshmen girls
August 19, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
CARY - Panther Creek girls’ tennis coach Nathaniel Blalock knew the talented younger sister of defending Tri-9 Conference singles champion Megan Smith was joining the lineup this year for what was already a strong team.
He also was aware that freshman Sammi Smith, like her big sister, is a state-ranked junior tennis player. But he didn’t realize Sammi was one of four freshmen all boasting state junior tennis rankings on their way to Panther Creek.
“I knew about Sammi,” says Blalock, “but I didn’t know about all the freshman and I didn’t know how talented they are.”
Panther Creek’s precoious lineup is off to a 3-0 start in Tri-9 play as the Catamounts swept to a 9-0 win over Apex Thursday at Annie Jones Park.
