PIAA Boys’ Tennis Singles Champions

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) has crowned singles champions in boys’ tennis since 1942. Each classification champion and additional student-athletes from the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League (WPIAL) have qualified for the PIAA Championships since its inception, with PIAA District VII claiming a total of 19 state singles champions in the sport.

Two WPIAL student-athletes have captured multiple PIAA singles crowns: Mt. Lebanon’s Jack Waltz (1961, 1962, 1963) and Sewickley Academy’s Luke Ross (2016, 2017).

A full list of singles champions by year and classification can be found below. The 2020 season was not contested due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
