In the Final Round of the 2016 NCHSAA 4A Dual Tennis Team Championship, the Falcons suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Myers Park Mustangs, who finished the season undefeated with a 21-0 record.

The match was forced into doubles courts following a 3-3 tie in singles courts with wins by Anna Rico, Katie Andreini, and Sophia Gray.  Katie Andreini and Katie Rico won the first doubles court. With the strong start and a 6-2 lead in another court, the Falcons were prime position for a state championship. However, Myers Park fought back, winning another doubles court to tie the match at 4-4 and battling back in the other court to eventually capture the State Championship.

Although it was an unfortunate end for the Falcons, they can take a lot of positives from this season.  This was the first time in Green Hope Women’s Tennis history that they have reached the State Championship.  This year they beat Panther Creek, who won the past three state championships.  

The Falcons are strong and are trending in the right direction with lots of young talent and plenty of motivation for next year.  Congrats on a great season.
