Behind section singles champion Connor Shallcross, the senior-laden Beaver boys tennis team finished second in Class AA Section 2 last season and advanced to the WPIAL quarterfinals.
Beaver lost five starters from that team, including Shallcross, but the team is in the same position this season — second behind Blackhawk.
The team’s two returning starters, sophomores Jon Tetrick and Devin Dikec, are playing in the top two singles players. They started at No. 2 doubles last year.
