Norwin notebook: Lacrosse player honored as positive athlete
Saturday, June 18, 2022 | 8:47 PM
Norwin senior Nickolas Harris was one of 32 winners at this year’s Western Pennsylvania Positive Athlete Awards presentation, done virtually via social media.
Harris won the award in boys lacrosse.
Athletes are honored for overcoming obstacles, giving back to their schools and communities or having positive attitudes that better those around them.
Norwin rising senior Xander Smith didn’t just attend Pitt’s specialist camp for kickers, punters and long snappers. Smith went in with a purpose and came away with a first prize.
He won the long-snapping competition of the event, garnering praise from Panthers’ coach Pat Narduzzi.
WCCA 7s approaching
The Larry Sellitto Memorial 7-on-7 Football Tournament will return July 21 at Latrobe.
Norwin is the returning champion of the passing tournament, now in its 11th year. Franklin Regional was the runner-up.
Penn-Trafford has five titles and three second-place finishes.
Summer is just starting, but the WPIAL has its new basketball sections in place for the next winter season.
That is quite a change for Norwin and Hempfield.
As in the past, the top four teams in each section will make the playoffs.
Norwin soccer player Grace Ketler committed to play at Mercyhurst.
