The North Allegheny girls’ tennis team began its quest for a fifth straight WPIAL championship on Monday afternoon with a 4-1 non-section victory over Shady Side Academy.
The Tigers rolled to the win and cruised to victories in singles play courtesy of Ava Catanzarite, Ashley Huang and Carolyn Tsung. The doubles team of Rebekah Rest and Katherine Ambrose defeated Paige Golden and Ariana Goitz by a 6-3, 6-1 decision. NA’s only blemish on the day was a loss at No. 2 doubles where Lauren Davies and Kristen Karin picked up a 4-6, 6-3, 10-7 win.
