Last week, Shady Side Academy placed second in the WPIAL Class AAA tournament for the fourth straight season with a 4-1 loss to North Allegheny.
But the Indians bounced back in a big way Tuesday with a 5-0 win against DuBois. Shady Side Academy will play District 1 champion West Chester Henderson in the quarterfinals Friday at 8 a.m. at Hershey Racquet Club. West Chester Henderson was a PIAA semifinalist last season.
The Indians, who lost in the state quarterfinals last season, is looking to get back to the PIAA final for the first time since 2011 and win its first state title since 2010.
A WPIAL team has won the PIAA Class AAA girls tennis state championship eight straight seasons and 12 of the past 14.
