West Allegheny, Penn-Trafford, Montour, Mt. Lebanon, Baldwin and North Allegheny all recorded doubleheader sweeps in game play from last Thursday to Sunday as the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League continues its stretch run to the playoff tournament.

Mother Nature again got the better of several scheduled doubleheaders, including three on Sunday, and league officials hope to have those matchups rescheduled soon.

Two weeks remain in the regular season — Oct. 9 and Oct. 16 — with the potential for games to be rescheduled during the weeks before and after Oct. 16.

A point system is in place — two points for a win and one point for a game played — in determining the pairings for the playoffs, which are tentatively scheduled to begin the weekend of Oct. 22.

Montour (7-3) leads the way with 24 points, while West Allegheny (7-1) is in second with 22 points.
