A day after heavy rains forced the postponement of the PIAA Team Golf Championships on Wednesday, the Sewickley Academy boys and North Allegheny girls turned the wait into a golden experience. The Panthers in Boys AA and the Tigers in Girls AAA won PIAA Team Golf titles on Thursday afternoon at the Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York.
After finishing second a year ago, Sewickley Academy claimed its first ever PIAA boys golf crown by shooting a combined 333, ten strokes better than runner-up New Hope-Solebury.
North Allegheny girls were even more impressive by posting a score of 353 which was 23 strokes better than runner-up Mount St. Joseph.
While the Sewickley Academy boys and North Allegheny girls were bringing home gold, the Peters Township boys and Greensburg Central Catholic girls were earning silver. PT finished second in the Boys AAA finals with a score of 313, only one stroke behind champion Radnor. Meanwhile GCC continued its tremendous first season ever by shooting a 413, 12 strokes behind Girls AA winner Villa Maria.
