Holly Barwatt and Angela DeRose came into the WPIAL Class AA doubles finals expecting to move into the semifinals and have a chance at qualifying for the state tournament.
Zoe Bojalad and Emily Kraus had other ideas.
Barwatt and DeRose were seeded third, but after a rough, 10-6, first round pro-set win against Maria Palumbo and Kate Enos of Derry, the Eagles pair was rolled out by Bojalad and Kraus, 11-9, in a disappointing loss in the quarterfinals.
It wasn’t just being defeated by the team that ended up winning the WPIAL Class AA title -- Bojalad for the second time – it was how it happened. South Park led the match, 9-6, then lost the next five games.
