Top seed and defending champion Meredith Lee of Owen J. Roberts didn’t drop a game Friday while cruising into the Pioneer Athletic Conference Singles Championships semifinals at Kinetix Sports Club.
Lee will be joined in the Final Four by the other top four seeds, Phoenixville’s Julia Gumieniak (No. 2), Spring-Ford’s Tori Alexander (No. 3) and Methacton’s Dina Nouaime (No. 4).
Gumieniak dropped two games in each of her matches, topping Methacton No. 2 Tina Prince, 6-2, 6-0, to advance to the semifinals.
Alexander faced the toughest challenge by coming up clutch to rally past Owen J. Roberts’ No. 2 Elaina Lee, 2-6, 7-6, 7-5. Nouaime dropped just two games in three matches.
Elaina Lee, Prince, Spring-Ford No. 2 Kathryn Alvarez and Methacton No. 3 Sydnie Markowitz remain in contention for districts by reaching the quarterfinals.
Action will resume Saturday at 2 p.m. at Kinetix.
