SNOW HILL -- Lindsey Frederick of Eastern Wayne and Southern Wayne's Tara Hirsch will meet today to decide the Class 3-A Eastern Carolina Conference singles title.

In Wednesday's action, Frederick fought through a tough match against Charles B. Aycock's Jessica Davis, winning 6-2, 6-3 before coasting to a win over Wilson Hunt's Keionna Love 6-2, 6-2.

Hirsch took care of Kinston's Emily Broadway 6-1, 6-3 and the Warriors' Mollie Musgrave 6-4, 6-4.

In doubles play, it will be an all Aycock final as the tandems of Courtney Barnes-Emilee Quinn and Kristen Prosser-Kristen Bennett advanced to today's final.

Barnes-Quinn beat Lauren Wiggins-Alyssa Tilghman of Kinston 6-0, 6-0 and Wilson Hunt's Madison Cauley-Abby Earle 6-1, 6-3.

Prosser-Bennett defeated Wilson Hunt's Paige Tyson-Jordan Winslow 6-2, 6-0 and battled Lauren Bynum-Casie Musgrave of Eastern Wayne to a 7-6 (7-3), 1-6, 1-6, 6-4 win.

"Both of our doubles teams played exceptional tennis," said Aycock coach Luke Vail. "Prosser and Bennett stepped up big midway through the third set and turned the match in their favor. Courtney and Emilee did a great job of controlling the net and putting the ball away."
