Green Hope wins fifth Tri-Nine title
October 16, 2011Tri-Nine Conference
CARY - Green Hope reigns as the five-time Tri-Nine Conference girls tennis team regular-season champion, but one of the two individual tournament titles has been wrested from the Falcons' grasp.
Panther Creek sophomore Megan Smith swept through the singles tournament with four wins in two days, capped by Thursday afternoon's victories in the semifinals and finals.
Smith, the No. 1 seed, was tested only in the final, when she needed a third-set tiebreaker to defeat No. 2 seed Audrey Channell of Green Hope 6-2, 2-6, 1-0 (10-3).
"I'm definitely proud I won this tournament," Smith said. "I wasn't really thinking about (what school) I was playing against. I was just trying to play hard."
A Green Hope player had won the Tri-Nine singles title the last three years. Melissa Kandinata, now playing at Richmond, won in 2010 and 2009, and Helen Wang, who won the Tri-Nine doubles title for the second straight year, won in singles in 2008.
