Thirumala, Telang Win Section 2-AAA Championship

Posted on:

For the second time in as many weeks, NA Boys’ Tennis players made it an all-NA final, this time in the Section 2 Doubles tournament. The championship match, moved indoors due to the threat of inclement weather, featured NA’s two regular doubles teams. This coach’s dream scenario saw junior Srivatsav Thirumala and freshman Shivum Telang take on their teammates, brothers senior Adithya Ramadas Guptha and sophomore Adhav Ramadas.

The first set saw the teams feel each other out as they exchanged early breaks. Eventually, the fourth seeded Thirumala and Telang got a break they were able to consolidate to take the first set, 6-2. The tenth seeded brothers rebounded early in the second set to take the first game. However, after two long games, the four seed was back on top again by a break. A quick hold by Telang made it 3-1 and NA’s #1 team was able to roll to the second set by the identical score of 6-2.

By virtue of their strong play all tournament, both teams will advance to the WPIAL Championships to be held at North Allegheny next Tuesday and Wednesday. Great job and good luck to both teams!
