Borowicz upset 2nd-seeded Alie DiNicola of Mercyhurst Prep, 6-4, 6-3, on Saturday in the D-10 semifinals at Villa Maria Academy's outdoor courts in Erie.
Borowicz will face No. 1 seed Tara Thomas of Villa Maria for the championship at 3 p.m. Tuesday at Villa. Thomas is a 3-time state doubles champ.
Thomas beat Grove City's Mary Coulter, 6-0, 6-0, in the other semifinal match on Saturday.
Coulter beat Wilmington's Mary Matyasovsky, 8-4, in the quarterfinals while Borowicz ousted Villa Maria's Ryleigh Valone, 8-4, in the quarters.
Also in Saturday's quarterfinals, DiNicola beat Hickory's Isabelle Frangakis, 8-1, and Thomas defeated Greenville's Anna Cooper, 8-0.
“I would like to congratulate both Daphne and Isabelle on an outstanding tennis season,” said Hickory head coach Ed Newmeyer. “Not only did Daphne have a perfect 14-0 record at No. 1 singles during Region 1 play, but
she also defeated some outstanding Double-A Region 2 singles players from both Villa Maria and Mercyhurst Prep during Saturday’s tournament. I wish her all the best in Tuesday’s D-10 singles championship match.”
