Sison/Armistead State Doubles Champions

In a tense, too tense, 2 set match Anisah and Abby won!   7-5,7-6, and it took 2 hours 35 minutes.    Their opponent was a team from the perennial tennis powerhouse from the West, Bishop McGuiness.  Our two sophomores beat their two seniors in a back and forth, hills and valleys type of match, with Anisah setting up Abby for the final overhead put away.  Abby said her tail was wagging when she saw the lob return coming up short and where she could get it.  And she did.  It was an awesome win and FA's first state championship of any kind in tennis.  Next week we take on Raleigh Charter in the team playoffs, a match that, for all purposes,  will decide who goes to the State Team Championship.  Lets all come out and cheer on the Patriots on Monday at Flaherty. WAY TO GO ANISAH AND ABBY!!!
