Wellsboro swept a doubleheader with rival North Penn-Liberty at Packer Park on Friday, April 26 to win their sixth straight (2024, 2023, 2022, 2021, 2019, 2018)* NTL boys tennis championship.

It is the 12th boys tennis league title for Wellsboro.

The Hornets won the first match 5-0 and edged the Mounties 3-2 in the second match to finish a perfect 6-0 in league play, and extend their record to 10-4 overall.

"The team played an awesome match tonight and I'm really proud of everything they have accomplished this season," head coach Andy Borzok said. "One of their goals was to win the NTL championship, so they were obviously very excited. It's that time of the season where I start to realize that I have limited time left with my seniors, and I am particularly grateful for this group of seniors. They are leaders and role models who have helped to shape the culture for many future teams."
