The Highlanders completed their undefeated conference title run with a 5-0 sweep of the Falcons to win their second consecutive CSAC title.
The Highlanders and Falcons had met one week earlier as a battle of the CSAC unbeatens, and Cairn emerged victorious with a 9-0 team score. The Highlanders were eager to welcome the #2 ranked Falcons to Langhorne for the championship matchup to see if they could repeat those results and claim another CSAC championship. The Highlanders held the conference title from 2019, as the 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19 shutdowns.
Doubles play kicked off first, and all three Highlander pairs were successful,
putting Cairn up 3-0 before singles play even began. In the #1 doubles slot, the all-conference pair of Brianna Miller and Paige Kemper (also named CSAC Rookie and co-Player of the Year) earned an 8-1 victory. The #2 pair of Lauren Griffith and Sarah Jackson, also named to the CSAC All-Conference team for women’s tennis doubles, won their matchup 8-2, and Gabriella Hurst and Rachel Campbell-Robertson earned the Highlanders’ third victory, 8-2, in the #3 slot.
After going up 3-0 in doubles, the Highlanders only needed two victories in singles play to clinch the advantage and the title. Of the six singles matchups, Lauren Griffith, named to the all-CSAC singles team, won hers first in the #3 spot, 6-1, 6-0. Brianna Miller, also named to the all-CSAC
singles team, won her #2 matchup, 6-0, 6-1, tipping the advantage to the Highlanders and securing for them their second consecutive CSAC championship title.
Congratulations to the Highlanders for their undefeated conference season and successful championship run!
