Girls Tennis: Experienced Sewickley hoping to unseat defending champs

Written by Keith Barnes on .

A year ago, Sewickley Academy came within an inch of winning the WPIAL 2A team title and this season the Panthers could be the only squad with the depth to upset defending champion Beaver.

Sewickley Academy once again clinched the Section 4 title with a 7-0 record thanks in large part to a its three singles players, seniors Emily Ward, Caroline Becker and McKayla Cox. All three were with the team last season and participated in the WPIAL and PIAA team tournaments.

That's not all the experience the Panthers have, however, as sophomore Allina Mattson and senior Morgan Recker also saw time last year and could be a factor in the key doubles matches.

Sewickley Academy has not gone longer than two years without a team title since it won its first in 2008.
