Kane & Wanamaker fall in Round of 8 to Moses Brown #1 Doubles team

After upsetting the 4th best seed from Division I in the Barrington #1 Doubles team of sisters Abigail Walter and Jillian Walter, Mt. Hope's #1 Doubles team of Brianna Wanamaker and Morgan Kane looked for lightning to strike twice against the Moses Brown #1 Doubles team of Abby Mansolillo and Lucy Strickler on the warm Sunday afternoon at Slater Park. Wanamaker and Kane came out to a good start up 3-1 early on in the first set of play. The team of Mansolillo and Strickler bounced back in the first set after some adjustments to win the first set 7-5 and take the second set handily, 6-0 to defeat Mt. Hope and advance to the Semifinals, Round of 4. With the loss, Kane and Wanamaker finish their season, tournament play, and high school careers as one of the top 8 doubles teams in the State Tournament draw for the Fall 2016 season.
