Tigers Lock Up Section Crown With 3-2 Win Over Rams
Completing a rain-suspended match from last week, the delay was worth the wait for North Allegheny as the Lady Tigers clinched the Section 2-AAA title with a 3-2 win over Pine-Richland on Monday.
The No. 2 and No. 3 singles players, Audrey Zheng and Tia Soussou, picked up dominant 6-0, 6-0, wins over their opponents. The decisive victory came from Siya Jain and Rebecca Murphy at No. 1 doubles with a hard-fought 7-6 (7-2), 6-2, triumph over Deeya Nayyar and Rachel Smith.
With the win, North Allegheny improves to 14-1 overall and concludes section play with a 7-0 record. The Tigers will visit Franklin Regional on Tuesday for a non-section tuneup.
