Athletes of the Week- May 12
The Panther Athletes of the Week are Lindsay Graff '11 and Leah Fried '10.
Lindsay and Leah had an undefeated regular tennis season. They played beautifully throughout the year and were seeded #2 at the district championship. Lindsay and Leah advanced to the finals to face the team state champions from the previous year, American Heritage. Our girls played unbelievable and won in a tough 3 set match. This allowed them to advance to the state championship. In the first two rounds at the state championship Lindsay and Leah lost only 4 games total. In the finals of the individual doubles flight they had to face a tough Gulliver Prep team who was the #1 seed. One of the girls, Sarah McLean, was the overall singles champion this year. Lindsay and Leah took over and won decisively 6-1, 6-2. This gave Lindsay and Leah the Individual State Doubles Championship. They then played for the overall state doubles champion. Lindsay and Leah fought hard against a very tough Gulf Breeze team. They eventually fell short in the final 6-2, 6-2. This is an amazing accomplishment for the Pine Crest girls.
Lindsay and Leah have been selected to the Sun-Sentinel
and Miami Herald
All-County first teams.
