Lampeter-Strasburg senior Taylor Capoferri has won the Gold Medal for best singles player in the L-L League in Class AAA competition by defeating Manheim Township’s Kate Moore 7-5, 6-3.
Both Moore and Capoferri had to battle unforced errors in the opening set, each player trying to gain an upper hand.
“That was the key because we were both making some unforced errors. That was my first final and her first final, and she did really well,” Capoferri said, mentioning her friendship and familiarity with Moore as members of the same country club.
After Moore battled her way to a 4-3 lead in the first set, Capoferri found her groove, taking the lead when Moore’s return volley came up short against the net.
Suddenly Moore had trouble finding her serves, easing some of the stress on Capoferri.
“Usually when I started the game with 15-0 or 30-0 those were the games I had the most momentum in,” Capoferri said, inching toward match point. “It was nice that I was up 40-0 at the end so I could take some of the pressure off myself.”
