Carrboro tops N.C. Science & Math; will play for state 2-A title

Carrboro is returning to the state 2-A dual-team tennis championship today and the Jaguars hope to come away with a title — something that eluded them the last two seasons. ... Voyager Academy is eliminated in 1-A semifinals in Raleigh ... Durham Academy eliminated in 3-A NCISAA semifinals ... Trinity School of Durham and Chapel Hill and Carolina Friends School were both eliminated in 2-A NCISAA semifinals.

A tornado apparently was whirring somewhere beyond Duke University’s indoor tennis facility, and the twister inside was Cardinal Gibbons High School blowing past Chapel Hill 6-0 in the dual-team semifinals of the 3-A tennis playoffs.

East Regional champion Cardinal Gibbons, a private school in Raleigh, will play for another state championship on Saturday at Burlington Tennis Center.

“They’re just really good,” Chapel Hill coach Neil Alderman said. “They’ve won seven out of the last eight state titles.”

Alderman said Cardinal Gibbons is the only team he’s lost to in the playoffs.

This season’s Chapel Hill squad was the best edition of the Tigers in quite some time, Alderman said, but Chapel Hill’s best couldn’t handle what Cardinal Gibbons brought to the court.

Christofer Chang was Chapel Hill’s No. 1 player, and Robert Kelly, the Crusaders’ No. 1 — who won the state 3-A individual singles championship a week ago — beat him 6-3, 6-1.
