Pitt County had a strong show­ing at the NCHSAA 3-A girls’ ten­nis re­gional at N.C. Wes­leyan Col­lege this week­end, high­lighted by a J.H. Rose tan­dem tak­ing top hon­ors in dou­bles ac­tion.

Maryah Stokes and Ginger Evans won the re­gional cham­pi­onship.

After cruis­ing to a two-set semi­fi­nal win, the Ram­pants’ top dou­bles team was locked in a bat­tle with Kathryn Thomp­son and Frances Cole­man from New Hanover in the fi­nals. Stokes and Evans dropped the first set 6-1, but they re­bounded and won first place in a 1-6, 7-6 (8), 7-5 vic­tory.

They will look to carry their mo­men­tum into the state tour­na­ment to be held Fri­day and Satur­day in Burling­ton.

D.H. Con­ley’s Madi­son Cul­lipher fin­ished sec­ond in the re­gional in the sin­gles bracket.

She beat Top­sail’s Kylee Ed­wards, 6-2, 4-6, 6-1, in the semi­fi­nals. Mary Davis Thomp­son from New Hanover then won the fi­nals with a 6-3, 6-0 vic­tory.

Par­rott in semis

Par­rott Academy’s un­de­feated vol­ley­ball team is in the semi­fi­nals of its state tour­na­ment af­ter edg­ing Grace Chris­tian, 25-22, 25-23, 26-24. Next up for Par­rott (19-0) is a home match against Cary Chris­tian on Tues­day at 6 p.m.
