For the first time in more than a decade, Cardinal O’Hara’s boys’ tennis team is bound for the Catholic League semifinals.
Ryan Shields breezed through his No. 2 singles match without dropping a game, and the pairing of Patrick McCarry and Martin Meenan did the same at No. 1 doubles as the Lions steamrolled Lansdale Catholic, 5-0.
The Lions advance to take on St. Joseph’s Prep in Wednesday’s semifinals. It’s the first time in at least 14 years that O’Hara has made it through.
