PC loses in East Final
November 5, 2011Tri-Nine Conference
RALEIGH - The Broughton High athletic official in charge of updating state championship banners and signs on campus may soon be pulling double-duty.
The Capitals' girls tennis team has advanced to the NCHSAA 4-A state finals for the third straight year with a 5-1 win over Panther Creek Wednesday afternoon at Broughton.
The school's hallowed courts feature a green wall listing the years of each state title painted in white. The 2009 state was posted a couple of years ago, but 2010 still needs to be painted on and the unbeaten Capitals (22-0) are now one win shy of adding 2011 to the wall.
Broughton plays the winner of the Greensboro Grimsley-Charlotte Myers Park semifinal on Saturday at the Burlington Tennis Center. The Capitals have beaten Myers Park in the finals the last two years.
"There's a lot of pressure at the state finals because Broughton is always expected to win,” said senior Sarah King, the Caps' No. 2 singles. “Last year I was trying not to stress out, but I know what to expect this year.”
