The North Cross Girls tennis team coached by Heather Lawrence and Sarah Hill won the Blue Ridge Conference Championship at North Cross on Saturday, May 8th. This was the culmination of a great season and the first time that North Cross has won the title since 2004. The championship match was close against Carlisle School, coming down to 3 games a piece for each team with the final game being played center court. North Cross had won 3 singles matches (Morgan Clark, Hannah Carter and Gussie Revercomb) and lost 3 and had won 1 doubles match (Carter/Revercomb) and lost 1. On the last court, the only senior Sarah Jessee and 8th grader Morgan Clark, were down 5 -0 when they saw that their teammates had won a doubles match. Jessee said that at that moment she knew it was up to them and the tide changed. Jessee / Clark proceeded to win the next 8 games to win 8-5 and take the Championship. Sarah Jessee is the only senior on the winning team and was also on the State Champion volleyball team and was named All-State and All-Conference in that sport. She will be attending Washington and Lee University in the fall.
