Peters Township coach Brandt Bowman said this season’s team is one of the youngest he’s ever had.
But that hasn’t stopped Peters Township from being in control of its own destiny to win its third consecutive Class AAA Section 5 champions.
The Indians entered the week 8-0 in the section and are led by senior Mitch Kreider, who won a section singles title in 2012 and 2013 but didn’t play this season due to a conflict the following week at WPIALs.
Kreider is just one of two seniors in the starting lineup, along with doubles player Jordan Dollard.
Dollard’s brother, sophomore Brendan Dollard, plays No. 2 singles. Three freshmen — Ryan Farrell, Miguel Ascenscio and Nathan Wang — are regular starters, and two more freshmen, Joe Grzyb and Anthony Castelone, have started at times.
