Voinov Reaches WPIAL Quarterfinals

Posted on:

Tigers’ senior Ivan Voinov participated in the WPIAL AAA Singles Championship Thursday afternoon on the NASH courts and completed two rounds of play.  Seeded 6th after his strong performance in the Section 2 Tournament, Voinov squared off against the 11th seed, Anup Nadesan, of Franklin Regional and won their first round match 10-2.  In the quarterfinals, Voinov tangled with Marcus Mitchell of Allderdice High School, the 3rd overall seed.  Mitchell broke serve early and jumped to a 5-0 lead before Voinov battled back, eventually falling 10-3.

Voinov will pair with fellow senior Richard Hofmann along with juniors Mark Chuirazzi and Jerry Huang at the Section 2 Doubles Tournament, slated to begin Monday at noon on the NASH Courts.
