Last week, the GNRC held its postseason tennis tournaments. There were two tournaments: one for doubles teams and one for singles players. The East Wake tennis team sent senior Will D’Allaird and sophomore Koby Higgs in to the singles tournament. Higgs lost on the first day of the tournament, while D’Allaird advanced to the second day, but he lost in the early stages.
The doubles team, made up of sophomore Mitchell Wilson and junior Isaiah Lucas, suffered the same fate as Higgs, while the doubles team of seniors Khadeem Dublin and Jake Clement won the tournament. Reflecting on the tournament, Dublin said “It was a tough tournament, but me and my boy Jake got our icy water buckets and got that money.” With the conference tournament win, Dublin and Clement will move on to play in the regional round of the state tournament.
