Anna Li Bows Out At WPIAL Singles Championships In Semifinals

Posted on:

North Allegheny sophomore Anna Li reached the semifinals before bowing out at the WPIAL Individual Semifinals on Wednesday afternoon.  In a non-section match this week, Li defeated Shady Side Academy’s Ananya Dua in three sets. The two met again in the semifinals of the individual tournament and this time Dua claimed a 6-1, 6-3, win over Li.  However, Li’s trek in the WPIAL Class bracket isn’t over yet as the sophomore will face Fox Chapel’s Laurel Shymansky this afternoon in the third-place consolation match.  The match is set to begin at 2:00 pm.

Li opened the tournament with a first round win over Mt. Lebanon’s Skyler Morgan, 10-1, and followed with a 10-8 triumph over Maria Santilli of Norwin. North Allegheny freshman Eugenia Lee also participated in the Class AAA tournament but fell in a first round matchup with Fox Chapel’s Amanda Nord, 10-7.
