Team Stories

The middle school tennis Warriors lost to St. Timothy’s, 5-1, Thursday in the Capital Area Middle School Conference championship match. The Warriors defeated the Titans for the title the past two years, but St. Timothy’s rolled through the conference with an undefeated record this fall. “They are really good,” said coach Anne Barnes. “We battled the best we could to hang in there to force doubles, but they were too strong. They were the only team to beat us all season, so I think we did very well overall.” Sibley Hash earned the lone St. David’s win, 8-1. The Warriors finished the season 12-3.

The middle school tennis Warriors advanced to the Capital Area Middle School Conference championship round with a 5-1 victory over North Raleigh Christian Academy Tuesday at the Satellite Athletic Complex. Since the Warriors had already clinched the overall match with five singles wins, NRCA opted not to play the three doubles matches. Elizabeth Holderness and Anne George won 8-0, Molly Tuttle prevailed 8-1, Sallie Bossong won 8-4 and Francie Hogshead battled back to an 8-5 victory. “We were ready to play and everyone did well,” said coach Anne Barnes, whose second-seeded Warriors play top-seeded St. Timothy’s for the title Thursday at Millbrook Exchange Park. The teams will meet for the league championship for the third straight year. St. David’s won both times, but the Titans are undefeated and the only team to beat the 12-2 Warriors this season. “Confidence will be key,” said Barnes. “Both matches (6-3 both times) have been close and could have gone our way. I like our chances.”

The second-seeded middle school tennis Warriors swept Magellan 9-0 in the Capital Area Middle School Conference tournament Monday at the Satellite Athletic Complex. St. David’s  (11-2) will host NRCA in the semi-finals Tuesday. Margaret Scoggin, Anne George and Anne Slater Barnes won their singles matches 8-0. Anna Clayton Tanner and Raynor Singleton won 8-1, while Sibley Hash battled to an 8-6 victory. “We changed our lineup to give some of our least experienced players a chance to play in the top spots today and it worked out,” said coach Anne Barnes, whose Warriors are 11-2. “Our doubles teams were strong as well.” Elizabeth Holderness/Salle Bossong (8-2), Francie Hogshead/Molly Tuttle (8-2) and Barnes/Socggin (8-0) swept doubles. 

The middle school tennis Warriors used five singles victories to earn a 5-4 decision at Cary Academy Monday. Elizabeth Holderness (8-6), Anna Clayton Tanner (8-4), Sallie Bossong (8-5), Anne George (8-2) and Raynor Singleton (8-2) helped SDS raise its record to 8-2 overall and 7-2 in league play. Elizabeth and Sallie had their hands full against strong opponents,” said coach Anne Barnes. “They each played a solid match and got the win.” The regular season ends Tuesday at Magellan followed by the conference tournament.

The St. David’s middle school tennis team earned a 9-0 road sweep over NRCA Tuesday.  Elizabeth Holderness (8-3), Anna Clayton Tanner (8-3), Raynor Singleton (8-0), Anne George (8-2), Sibley Hash (8-1) and Margaret Scoggin (8-1) won their singles matches. The rout continued in doubles as Sallie Bossong/Francie Hogshead (8-5), Anne Slater Barnes/Tanner (8-3) and Hash/Molly Tuttle (8-3) prevailed in doubles. “Everyone contributed today,” said coach Anne Barnes. “The doubles matches were fun to watch as we continue to experiment with combinations. Doubles will be key when the tournament starts.” St. David’s is 7-2 overall, 6-2 in the league with matches Monday and Tuesday. Tournament seeds will be determined Wednesday.
