WPIAL team tennis championship matchups set
Tuesday, May 7, 2019 | 9:03 PM
The WPIAL team tennis championship matchups feature Fox Chapel against Shady Side Academy for the Class AAA title and Quaker Valley taking on Indiana for the Class AA crown.
Both matches are Wednesday at the Oxford Athletic Club in Wexford. The Class AA match begins at 11:30 a.m., and the Class AAA contest starts at 12:30 p.m.
Fox Chapel and Shady Side Academy will play in the final for the second year in a row, and the Foxes will attempt to win their fourth straight title.
There will be a new champion in Class AA. Sewickley Academy, which bumped up to Class AAA this season, had won 15 straight Class AA titles, including last year’s 4-1 triumph over Indiana.
Quaker Valley was the last team to win a Class AA title (2003) before Sewickley Academy began its streak.
The top three teams in both WPIAL classifications advance to the PIAA tournament.
Oxford also will host Thursday’s consolation matches between Thomas Jefferson and South Park (Class AA) at 11:30 a.m. and Peters Township and Allderdice (Class AAA) at 12:30 p.m.
