FA Women's Tennis Big Win

On Tuesday the FA Tennis team took on the last 3 year's state champions, Raleigh Charter.  4 of our top players were out for the match due to injuries, sickness,etc. It was going to be a challenge to say the least.   To our regular line-up of Anisah, Helen, and Isabelle we added Gugma, Erin, Katherine, and Lanah.   In our most feel-good win ever, we triumphed anyway, winning 5-4.  After singles it was 3-3, with Anisah, Helen, and Erin all winning.  Helen and Erin had tie-breakers.  We won the #1 doubles of Anisah/Helen 8-3, but narrowly lost the #3 with Gugma/Lanah 7-9.  The match was tied 4-4 with the #2 doubles going to decide it.  Isabelle/Erin went ahead 3-0 but then fell behind 4-6.  They tied it up at 8-8 and proceeded to win a pressure packed tie-breaker 7-4.  The match took an unprecedented 4.5 hours, but it was our most satisfying ever.  Congrats to all the girls.  You made us proud.
