The Quaker Valley girls tennis team welcomes a familiar face as head coach. Christiana Hays, who has served as the district's middle school coach for several years and as an assistant for the varsity team this past season, has been named head tennis coach.

During the fall season, she worked as a volunteer coach under previous coach Jeff Sebastian. The girls team was crowned WPIAL champion and advanced to the PIAA quarterfinals.

“Christi has a wealth of accolades as a tennis coach and player,” said Mike Mastroianni, director of athletics and student activities.

“Her knowledge of the game, proven experience as an instructor and familiarity with our players will help to ensure continued success for our tennis program.”

In addition to coaching at Quaker Valley, Hays is the founder and head coach for the Sewickley Area junior team and Key Lob.

The junior team serves more than 50 area youth ages 7-17 and competes in the West Penn Junior Team League. Through Key Lob, Hays provides individual and group instruction to teams and individuals of all ages throughout the Pittsburgh area.

Hays has more than 30 years of experience in tennis instruction, including previous head coaching stints at Sewickley Academy as well as serving as a tennis and paddle tennis instructor for various clubs and organizations in Pennsylvania and California.
