Lady Leopards Edge Wildcats to Claim a Share of NBC

Louisville Lady Leopards Girls Tennis

Louisville 3, Canton South 2

Louisville clinched a share of their fourth straight NBC Girls Tennis Title Thursday at Canton South. The victory, however, did not come easy as the Lady Leopards edged the Lady Wildcats 3-2.

Canton South became the first NBC team to score on Louisville since the Leopards defeated Marlington 3-2 Beatty's Sports Under Armour Summer 2013 Adback on September 22, 2011. In fact, Louisville had won 160 consecutive sets in conference play coming into the match Thursday.

While the Lady Wildcats won both doubles matches, the Lady Leopards swept all three singles matches to claim the victory. The key match of the contest came in #2 Singles. It took Alexis Isla three sets, but she managed to defeat Paige Mittas 6-4, 4-6, 6-1 to help Louisville gain a much needed point. Gretchen Groves and Sarah Robbins each won their singles matches in straight sets.

With the victory, Louisville is now 14-1 overall and 8-0 in NBC play. The Lady Leopards now lead the all-time series over the Lady Wildcats 38-13.
