Two sisters won the Pittsburgh-area boys doubles tennis championship.
Karli and Tayla Timko defeated Tin Chu and Drew Gallatin of Thomas Jefferson High 6-2, 6-1 Friday to win the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League doubles title.
The sisters, from Chartiers-Houston High, competed in the boys division because their school dropped its girls tennis program. The Timkos won the girls doubles title last year.
Their father is Mike Timko, a former West Virginia quarterback in the 1980s. Their mother, Shari Retton Timko, is a former WVU gymnast and sister of 1984 Olympic all-around champion Mary Lou Retton.
The Timko sisters will compete in the Pennsylvania boys championships May 22-23.
