Tiger netters reach finals

HOLLIDAYSBURG — The Hollidaysburg Area High School boys tennis team will play State College for the District 6 3A championship, thanks to the Golden Tigers’ 5-0 win over Altoona on Monday in high school action.

Hollidaysburg (16-0) is the No. 2 seed and will play at 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Altoona, 12-4, was the No. 3 seed.

“If we want a chance on Wednesday, we must be more sharp with our footwork and sharpen up our emotion and our intensity,” Hollidaysburg coach Brian Denis said.

The Golden Tigers swept the singles matches with Rami Alkhafaji beating Jonah Brandt, Rohan Gupta downing Casey Rispoli and Anthony Menard downing Nick Schimminger.

In doubles play, Nick Viduya and David Auerbeck downed John Keating and John Schmidhammer while Will Tyndall and John Rose defeated Ethan Katcher and Andrew Dixon.

“We were sloppy, extremely sloppy, more of the Monday blues,” Denis said of his team. “We looked sluggish and we made a lot more unforced errors, more than we usually do.”

SINGLES: 1, Alkhafaji, A, def. Brandt, 6-3, 6-1 2, Gupta, H, def. Rispoli, 6-0, 6-2; 3, Menard, H, def. Schimminger, 6-2, 6-0.
