The Roanoke Rapids High School Women’s Tennis Team traveled to Chapel Hill this past weekend for regional playoffs.
Representing the team during the tournament included Mary Brown in singles’ play; and doubles teams of Meghan Beam and Logan Storey, along with Riley Landen and Gabrielle Long. All of the players fought hard and represented RRHS well.
At the conclusion of the tournament, Riley Landen and Gabrielle Long finished 3rd in doubles overall, qualifying them for the state playoff tournament next weekend. According to Coach Michelle Pageau, “it has been over 10 years since RRHS has had a tennis player reach state playoffs”. Assistant Coach Stevie Harris shared “ We showed up at regionals as the underdog, with other teams underestimating the powerhouse players that we have. We left making a statement that RRHS has an exceptional tennis program and I have no doubt that Riley and Gabby will make great progress at state’s next weekend.”
