Shaler leads the pack of 14 varsity teams as the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League enters the stretch run to the league playoffs.

The Titans improved to 7-1 overall with a pair of dominating victories Sunday over Seneca Valley, 23-6 and 17-1.

Second-place Hempfield (6-2) also swept a doubleheader, topping Ellwood City, 18-10 and 9-4.

Mother Nature had contributed to a number of doubleheaders being postponed. Some of those contests will be made up Monday and Thursday before Sunday’s regularly scheduled games.

Three weeks remain in the regular season.

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.
