Provenzo (FR), Skolnekovich (QV) & Littman (WT) Win WPIAL Boys X-Country Gold
On a rainy and mud-filled day at the 2016 WPIAL boys cross country championship, the biggest story of the afternoon was Seneca Valley dethroning North Allegheny in Class AAA. The Tigers had captured the previous 11 team titles, but the Raiders, who also edged them in section competition this year, reigned victorious at Cooper's Lake Campground near Slippery Rock. Seneca Valley's margin of victory over NA was small, as both teams had their top five runners all finish within the top 22. As a result, both squads, along with Butler, advance to the state championship next month.
In Class AA, Greensburg Salem's Golden Lions lived up to their moniker, besting Quaker Valley for the top spot. South Fayette won a tiebreaker over New Castle to move on the the PIAA's, as well.
