On Wednesday the 17th, the Green Hope Women’s Tennis Team claimed their first win of the NCHSAA State Championship.They took down a very strong Broughton team, and they didn’t have to break a sweat. Junior Katie Andreini said, “We played really hard and we came out strong in the first round. We showed everyone what we are capable of when we exhibit our team camaraderie.”

Rumor has it that the Broughton team was very “confident” coming into the match, but that quickly went away when the Falcons got off to a very quick start in the match. It started off with wins from Sophia Gray, Katie Andreini, and Reilly Major, and they ended up sweeping Broughton in 6 straight games. “We used their confidence to our advantage, and we used it to fire us up,” Katie said.

The team will play their 2nd round matchup on Tuesday the 23rd against Apex Friendship at the Cary Tennis Park. When asked about the team going forward, Andreini said “We have a lot of confidence going into the next round and closing out our first round match was a huge step in pushing us forward.”

Head out to the tennis park next Tuesday, and support your Falcons!
