Pennsbury High School’s No. 1 girls tennis player Megan Walsh, and No. 2 player Kyra Workman, both sophomores, placed fourth at the PIAA Girls Tennis Doubles State Championships last weekend in Hershey.

The girls, who played doubles together for the very first time, placed first at SOLs. As the No. 5 seed going into Districts, they beat the No. 4 seed team from Henderson – a very tough opponent – to make it to the top four going to States.

They entered the PIAA State Championships as the fourth place team from District 1, and beat two tough opponents from strong districts to advance into the top four again. They then lost to two even tougher opponents in two tight three-set matches, ending in fourth place in the state.
