The Beacon girls’ varsity tennis team captured the PSAL “A” Division New York City title, defeating the defending champion Wolverines of Bronx Science 5-0 to reclaim the city title.

The Blue Demons of Beacon entered the final having lost the two regular season matchups with the Wolverines, both tough 3-2 defeats, and the only two losses on the season for Beacon.

But the third time would be a charm for Beacon, winning all five flights on Friday afternoon. With top singles player Perene Wang out for Bronx Science, Rachel Musheyev stepped into the first singles flight for the Wolverines but was no match for Victoria Sec, who defeated her 6-0, 6-0.

Two more straight sets wins from its second and third singles flights ensured the Beacon victory. Aleksandra Bekirova beat Christina Huynh 6-1, 7-5 at second singles, and Kyra Bergmann defeated Sofie Levine 6-4, 7-5.

Natasha Osses-Konig and Niki Truszkowski beat Alana Rosenthal and Klara Wichterle 7-5, 6-3 in the first doubles spot, and Sofia Shen and Sophia Prudhomme came back from a set down to beat Brett Zakheim and Cassie Tian 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 at second doubles to round out all the scores.
