Hockey: Burrell will attempt to win the first PIHL title in school history as the No. 1 Bucs (21-1) face Ringgold (18-4) in the Division II Penguins Cup championship game at 6 p.m. at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex. The teams played a pair of tight games during the regular season, with Burrell winning both, 4-2 and 7-6.
Fox Chapel brings back plenty of experience after qualifying for the WPIAL playoffs last season, and the Foxes will put that to the test right away as they visit perennial postseason qualifier Norwin for a nonsection game.
Softball: A pair of playoff teams from a season ago square off as Apollo-Ridge visits Burrell for a nonsection game on opening day. Apollo-Ridge is led by standout pitcher Mollie Charlton. Catcher Lea Coffman and infielder Kayla Santucci lead Burrell.
Leechburg holds the longest postseason streak in WPIAL history, and the Blue Devils figure to be in the mix again. They will host nonsection opponent Serra Catholic, a WPIAL Class 2A quarterfinalist last season.
