Girls Tennis: West Allegheny learning how to win

Written by Keith Barnes on .

It's hard to build a program from the ground up. It's even harder when you happen to play in, perhaps, the toughest section in the WPIAL.

West Allegheny is not known as a tennis school and has never played for a WPIAL singles, doubles or team title. Despite that, the Indians are getting firsthand knowledge on what it takes to build a team by watching – and invariably losing – to some of the top programs in the WPIAL in Section 4 in Upper St. Clair, Mt. Lebanon and Peters Township.

Though losing could get a bit frustrating, in the end, West Allegheny could eventually turn those losses into wins. The Indians even pulled off a 4-1 victory over Ringgold on Monday to get things started.
