Boys Tennis: Blackhawk headed back to playoffs

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Blackhawk has been a fairly regular visitor to the WPIAL Class 2A playoffs and this season won't be an exception.

This year the Cougars will head to the postseason led by senior Jacob Beier playing at No 1 singles, junior Jacob Nola at No. 2 and another senior, Ryder Blair in at the No. 3 singles slot.

Blackhawk last won the WPIAL team title in 1997 and is the only team not names Sewickley Academy or Quaker Valley to do so.

Last year the Cougars were the No. 8 seed in the tournament and won their first round match before meeting up with eventual champion Sewickley Academy in the quarterfinals.
