       BURLINGTON— Raleigh Cardinal Gibbons players won both the singles and the doubles championships on Saturday in the North Carolina High School Athletic Association state 3-A men’s tennis championships at the Burlington Parks and Recreation Tennis Center.

       In doubles, the team of Matt Galush and Noah Constantine of Cardinal Gibbons  won the championship by 6-2, 6-1 over Concord’s B.J. Beecher and Ryan Harvey. The Gibbons team beat the Weddington duo of Steven Denny and Sahil Vasa 6-2, 6-1 in the semifinals earlier Saturday morning.

.       Then the spirit of sportsmanship that often shows itself in high school athletics came to the forefront, The Concord and Charlotte Catholic doubles teams, which had really battled in a morning semifinal, decided that they wanted to eat lunch together after the championships were over. But they went looking for a place where they could play ping pong against one another before they sat down to eat.
