Girls Varsity Tennis · Girl’s Tennis Clinches 1st Win 3-2 Over North Allegheny Under New Head Coach


On Wednesday, The Lady Cat’s Tennis team earned their first win of the season in an absolute nail biter over North Allegheny. The ultimate decider came down to the last doubles match, which was a must win for the Cats. It was all tied up at 1 set apiece, when North Allegheny faltered at serve to hand the Lady Cats the final set with a score of 6 games to 3. This year, the team has a new, but familiar face manning the helm. Greater Latrobe Alum, Chad Kissell, has stepped into the Head Coach position for the first time ever, after a very successful career at Division I, Valparaiso University.
