CARY – David Hopkins of Winston-Salem Preparatory stopped William John’s bid for a third consecutive North Carolina High School Athletic Association's state 1-A men's singles tennis championship at the Cary Tennis Center on Saturday.
Hopkins defeated the two-time defending champion from Mount Airy in the finals in straight 6-3 sets. The Mount Airy standout made the state 1-A singles finals in each of his four high school seasons, winning titles in ’04 and ’05 and finishing second in ’03 and this year.
The Elkin duo of Matthew Wurdeman and Nick Holcomb won the doubles title, beating the Jordan-Matthews team of Jonathan Petty and Jonathan Scheetz, 6-4, 7-5.
In the nine years of a separate 1-A championship, an Elkin team has made it to the doubles finals eight times and the Buckin’ Elks have now earned six state crowns, including the last four in succession.
Wendy’s and the Carolinas Ford Dealers are the presenting sponsors of the NCHSAA sports program.
