Moon’s deep and talented senior class, which led the Tigers to the WPIAL finals for the first time since 1998, was well represented on the Allegheny 6 all-conference team.

Eight Moon players — all seniors — earned first-team honors, and Ryan Linn was named the conference’s top coach after the Tigers went undefeated in the regular season.
