Junior tennis player Bethany Yauch defeated three opponents Thursday at WPIALs to advance to the finals today.

Yauch played and defeated girls from Pine Richland, Mt. Lebanon, and Mars to advance.

The WPIAL finals are scheduled for later this afternoon. Yauch will play Ashley Wong from North Allegheny, who is the defending state champion. The finals will be held at Shady Side Academy.

“I am excited to play in finals, but also a little nervous,” Yauch said.

Yauch looks to continue her impressive run by keeping the same mentality she has had throughout the year.

“I need to stay calm and play my game, trying not to psych myself up,” she said.

Coach Zach Smith has enjoyed and has been delighted by her performance so far.

“Watching Beth play tennis and representing Baldwin just puts a smile on my face,” Smith said. “I am so proud of Beth on her play and her sportsmanship at the WPIAL championship.”

Whatever the outcome is at the WPIAL championships, Yauch has already secured a spot in the state tournament.
