Girls Tennis: Bobcats win first WPIAL crown since 2002

Written by Keith Barnes on .

It has been a long time coming.

 

For 13 years, Beaver has been a consistent playoff team, but because of the dominance of programs like Quaker Valley and Sewickley Academy, the Bobcats were relegated to watching while others celebrated on the court and carried home the WPIAL Class AA team tennis trophy.

 

Not this time.

 

Buoyed by an outstanding trio of singles players, Beaver knocked off defending champion Sewickley Academy, 3-2, at North Alleghenyon Wednesday to win the school’s first WPIAL team tennis title since 2002. The Bobcats will play Tuesday against District 9 champion St. Marys in the opening round of the PIAA Class AA tournament at a site and time to be determined.
