After defeating Panther Creek on Tuesday, the Falcons now move on to round 3 of the NCHSAA Dual Tennis Team Playoffs.  They are set to face off against 17-2 Pinecrest who is coming off a 5-2 win against the Clayton Comets.

In the match against PC on Tuesday, the Falcons went up 4-2 on the singles court with wins by Katie Andrieni, Reilly Major, Anna Rico, and Sophia Gray. However in NCHSAA playoff tennis, teams must win five courts in order to claim the match. The Falcons were forced into playing three doubles courts to decide the winner.

After the Falcons dropped the first doubles court match, the Catamounts gained momentum and moved within striking distance to 4-3. But that was shut down quickly on Doubles Court #1, as Anna Rico and Katie Andrieni waged a 10-0 pummeling of their opposition to secure the victory. This was the third victory over Panther Creek this year.

The Falcons will continue their quest for the state championship today in their match against Pinecrest at Cary Tennis Park. The match begins at 4 p.m.
