SUSPENDED: NCSSM, Voyager lead state tennis semis

N.C. Science & Math and Voyager Academy were well on their way to berths in Saturday’s 2-A and 1-A NCHSAA girls’ dual-team championships when rain forced the suspension of their semifinal matches Wednesday.

Northern Carolina 2-A Conference champion NCSSM (11-0) led 2-0 in its match against 15-2 Carrboro, trailed at No. 1 singles, led in two matches and was tied in a fifth when play was called at Rock Quarry Park at 4:55 p.m.

A team must win five of nine total matches to win. Six matches are contested in singles and three — if needed — in doubles.

Play is scheduled to resume Thursday, Oct. 30 at 5 p.m. at Rock Quarry Park, completing a rematch of a state 2-A semifinal pairing won by NCSSM a year ago. The winner — the 2-A East Regional champion — advances to the state title match against the Western Regional champion at 9:30 a.m. at the Burlington Tennis Center in Burlington.

At Treyburn Country Club, No. 1 seed and North Central Athletic Conference champion Voyager Academy suspended its home match against wild-card playoff entry Franklin Academy at 5:45 p.m.

Voyager, which split a pair of conference meetings with the Wake Forest visitors during the regular season, led in four matches and trailed in two when play was called.

The match will be resumed at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30 at Treyburn.
