RALEIGH - After winning the Tri-Nine tournament doubles title last week, Panther Creek freshmen Sammi Smith and Jordan Strickland entered the N.C. High School Athletic Association 4A tournament unsure what to expect.
Now the duo faces a similar feeling heading into the state tournament after winning the regional title at Millbrook Exchange Tennis Center on Saturday.
“We got a lot more different competition here, and it really helps a lot because people at states are going to be from all over, not just our area,” Smith said.
The Catamounts defeated Millbrook’s Lauren McCorquodale and Savannah Taranto, 6-3, 6-1 in the championship match. They did not drop a set during the two-day tournament.
“We’re excited,” Strickland said. “We felt very confident coming in here.”
