East Chapel Hill ninth-grader Ranie Heck won the singles championship and Wildcat teammates Brittany Hall and Caroline Pope won the doubles title in last week’s PAC-6 tennis championships.
Playing as the sun went down Wednesday at Wildcat Tennis Stadium, Heck beat East junior teammate Meghana Holegadde 6-0, 6-2.
Hall and Pope defeated East teammates MacKenzie Bright and Julia Gan by a 4-1 score after a Bright injured forced a premature end.
PAC-6 tennis tournaments have seldom played out to championship finals. They often end after semifinals, since the top four finishers in each bracket know they are advancing to the NCHSAA regional tournament for individuals. The 4A Mideast Regional is Friday and Saturday week at Millbrook Exchange Park in Raleigh.
Since it was an all-East affair on their home courts after the semifinals at last week’s PAC-6 event, the Wildcats chose to play it out to title finishes.Chargers win conference golf championship
