FA Tennis Loses Close One to State Champs

The FA Tennis team took on the 2 time reigning state 1A tennis champs, Raleigh Charter, on Thursday and nearly pulled out a victory.  After singles the score was tied 3-3 with Kali Sibilla, Ashlynn Stephan, and Isabelle Murphy all winning their matches.  Kali and Ashlynn both won tense 3rd set tie-breakers.  We had a chance, and needed to win 2 out of 3 doubles matches to win the whole thing.   However, we only got 1 of 3 with the sister team of Ashlynn and Niamh Stephan dominating in an 8-1 win.  We are a team of freshmen and sophomores primarily, and to come so close to beating  a team that has won the state championship the last 2 years is phenomenal feat.  Their team has 4 seniors in the top 6.  Somebody needs to start making a banner for the side of that downtown building for this team.  It is coming.
