Posted on:

Senior Manas Kathir represented the North Allegheny Boys Tennis Tigers at the WPIAL 3A Singles Championship Tuesday afternoon at the NASH Courts.  Playing out of the #9 seed, he defeated Ronan Gibbons of Upper St. Clair (#8 seed) in the first round, 10-6.  His next opponent was Adam Memije of Gateway, the tournament’s top seed, and Kathir prevailed 10-4.  Hobbled by leg cramps, he lost to #4, Devin Collier, of Bethel Park, 6-2, 2-1 (DNF).  Congratulations to Manas for an excellent tournament.
