Panther Creek clips Green Hope girls tennis, ends streak

CARY -- Every stroke mattered.

And maybe that’s all either Panther Creek or Green Hope’s girls’ tennis teams could have asked for, given the circumstances.

Green Hope entered the Tri-9 showdown as underdogs, despite being the five-time defending conference champions and never having lost to Panther Creek.

The Catamounts came in with fingers crossed that its top player would be well enough to go the distance, but instead the team had to shift its lineup around two injuries.

Three singles matches and one doubles match needed third-set tiebreakers, giving Panther Creek any number of match-saving moments to cherish in its historic 5-4 victory Thursday. An 82-match conference winning streak by the Falcons, who had gone 14-0 twice and 16-0 three straight years following a regular-season finale loss to Athens Drive in 2006, had come to an end.

“I would like to think it’s one of the bigger wins for the school since we opened,” PC coach Nathaniel Blalock said. “Today was a good day.”
