The Neshannock High girls tennis team’s season came to an end Tuesday.
The Lady Lancers dropped a 5-0 match in the first round of the WPIAL Class 2A playoffs to South Park on the Lady Eagles’ home courts.
Neshannock finished the year at 5-3 overall.
“I can’t say enough about how these kids improved and battled throughout the year,” Lady Lancers coach Chuck Dess said. “We graduated eight seniors from the previous year and started seven sophomores.
“Fifteen teams make it to the playoffs out of close to 40 teams. They are a veteran 4A school, like most teams in the playoffs. I know the girls will build on this and carry it into next season. I’m really proud of this team and their improvement this year.”
