No one could blame Owen J. Roberts’ Allison Root for feeling out-numbered.
The No. 2 seeded Wildcats’ junior finds herself as the only non-Spring-Ford player to qualify for the semifinals of the Pioneer Athletic Conference singles tournament, which continue Saturday morning at Perkiomen Valley.
The Rams’ league dominance was displayed with its trio of singles players, two-time defending PAC champion Mia Matriccino, junior Evelyn Mejia and senior Cady Krause,
The Final Four quartet were straight-set winners in the quarterfinals. No. 1 seed Matriccino blanked Upper Perkiomen’s Hope Thompson, 6-0, 6-0. Root was a 6-2, 6-0 winner over Phoenixville’s Vivona Xu. Meija, the Rams’ No. 2 singles player in the regular season, downed Perkiomen Valley’s Cindy Li 6-4, 6-0, while No. 4 seed Krause defeated Methacton’s Lauren Montgomery, 6-3, 6-4.
Action resumes Saturday at 9 a.m. with the semifinals followed by the semifinals. District qualification in 3A and 2A will also be held.
