HOLLIDAYSBURG - Unbeaten Hollidaysburg handed unbeaten Altoona its first loss, 4-1.
Hollidaysburg got singles wins from Amir Alkhafaji and Max Sheetz. The Golden Tigers also got wins from the No. 1 doubles team of Eric Miller and John Johnson and the No. 2 team of Emre Cardakli and Josh Cobler. Ryan Good earned Altoona's only win.
"For this early in the season, it was a great win for our guys," Hollidaysburg coach Brian Denis said. "The weather cooperated, and it was a nice team win for us. Altoona is always a tough match, and to come out and win a big match like that shows we worked hard. We'll see them again during the season. They're probably the best team we'll see on our schedule."
