Greensburg Central Catholic girls golf team looks to regain PIAA title

Sunday, October 24, 2021 | 9:48 PM

If the PIAA the ran its team tournament the way teams compete during the season, counting the top four scores, the Greensburg Central Catholic girls golf team would be shooting for a fourth consecutive title.

The Centurions won back-to-back titles in 2018 and ‘19.

But the PIAA counts only the top three, which allowed District 10 champion North East to edge the Centurions by six shots last year.

The Centurions are back and so are seniors Meghan and Ella Zambruno and sophomore Izzy Aigner. The trio, along with Olivia Kane, are looking to reverse those fortunes against North East, which returns the Swan sisters, Lydia and Anna.

Meghan Zambruno and Lydia Swan tied for second place Oct. 18 at the PIAA Class AA individual championship.

The Peters Township girls also are back after finishing second in 2020. Fox Chapel, however, was the WPIAL champion.

The WPIAL boys champions in the field are Fox Chapel in Class 3A and North Catholic in Class 2A.
