Back to Back District XI titles for Moravian Academy

It was not a surprise to see Moravian Academy in the District XI 2A team tennis championships. On Tuesday afternoon, the Lady Lions beat Bethlehem Catholic 3-0 to capture back to back titles, while also winning their ninth championship in the last 13 years.

Moravian Academy got their first point at number two singles with Chessie Bartolacci beating Shannon Stewart 6-1 6-2. Doubles took over from there sweeping the competition. First, Dedee Hoffman and Yan Yu beat Alexa Schoenfield and Maddie Lennert 6-4 6-1 at number two doubles. From there, Grace Wright and Sophia Brands beat Patricia Superka and Cecile Szollas at number two doubles to clinch the match for the Lions.
