Millbrook High School’s Quinn Carmean won both his singles and doubles matches Saturday afternoon to lift his team to a 5-3 victory over Winston-Salem R.J. Reynolds in the 4-A championship in the 19th annual NC High School Athletic Association state dual team tennis championships at the Burlington Tennis Center.
Carmean, who was selected as the Most Valuable Player of the title match, won at number two singles and teamed with Sean Weber to take the top doubles point. The teams split the six singles matches, with two going to a tiebreaker after the players split sets.
Millbrook completed an unbeaten 22-0 season in winning its second dual team crown but first since 1999.
For seniors Srini Iyengar, Tom Orban, Nick Orban, and Mark Zurawel, a state championship will be the perfect memory to take with them to graduation ceremonies.
