Two-time 4A state singles champion Susanne Boyden of Wakefield and three-time doubles champions Sammi Smith and Jordan Strickland of Panther Creek lead The News & Observer All-Metro girls tennis team.
Boyden was unbeaten en route to the singles title, as were Smith and Strickland in doubles. Devin Knors, an Appalachian State recruit, and little sister Jenna of Cardinal Gibbons teamed up to win the NCHSAA 3A doubles title.
Cary senior Supriya Narisetti, who won the Southwest Wake 4A singles title and pushed Boyden to a third set in the 4A semifinals, also made the team.
The N.C. Independent Schools Athletic Association does not have an individual tournament, but No. 1 seed Jessie Liu helped lead Cary Academy to the team finals. The Chargers were 26-2 this year.
Never miss a local story.
Carrboro freshman Jessie Ille was runnerup in NCHSAA 2A singles.
