A.C. Flora head tennis coach Amy Martin saw her girls team suffer a heartbreaking loss in the 2017 4A state championship as Greenville took advantage of two break points to pull out a 4-2 win.

But the Falcons came back strong in 2018 and this past Saturday, they won the program's first state title since 1970 with a 5-1 victory over Hilton Head.

The two senior captains, Megan Pleasant Breland Gann, were leaned on heavily by the head coach to help guide the younger players through the ups and downs of high-level tennis.

Both Gann and Pleasant are outstanding students at A.C. Flora High School and Pleaseant will get to showcase her tennis skills in the North-South all-star matches this weekend at Myrtle Beach.
