Event: 2016 WPIAL Competitive Spirit Championship Summary
January 9, 2016
Neshannock (A), Hopewell (AA) and North Allegheny (AAA) used near-flawless execution despite high levels of difficulty to claim 2016 WPIAL Competitive Spirit Championships on Saturday at Hempfield High School. For North Allegheny, the victory is their first in the four-year history of the sport at the WPIAL and PIAA level. It also means that the Tigers qualify for the PIAA Championships for the fourth consecutive season. Butler High School finished second in AAA for the third straight season. While winning Competitive Spirit titles is a new concept to North Allegheny, Neshannock and Hopewell are not strangers to trophies. The Lancers and Vikings both last took home Class A and AA titles in 2013, the first year of sanctioned competition.

Scholastic Notebook – 01/08/2016
January 8, 2016
It’s been a while since there has been this much of a roar coming from Cougar Mountain at this time of the year. The Yough Cougars basketball team is making a lot of noise this year. Yough is 9-3 overall and in first place in WPIAL Class AAA Section 3 with 4-0 record. Yough took over sole possession of first place with a 77-69 overtime victory against Indiana Tuesday. Indiana is the defending WPIAL champion. Yough is one of the biggest turnaround stories in the WPIAL, under second-year coach Casey Copeman. Yough was 6-16 last year and won only 49 games in the previous eight seasons. The last time they finished above .500 was 2006-07 when the Cougars were 15-9.

WPIAL Alum Q&A – Austin Dedert
Over the past several years, the Plum boys basketball team has been one of the most consistent squads in Class Quad-A. The Mustangs have captured consecutive Section 2 Championships, including in 2013-14, when Plum finished 18-4. The Mustangs also allowed the fewest points per game in the classification that season. One of the integral parts of the team was senior center Austin Dedert, who averaged more than 15 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks. Dedert, a three-year starter for Plum, now patrols the paint for St. Vincent College.

WPIAL Alum Q&A – Matt Skoff
More than six years ago, the Montour hockey team made an unlikely run to the PIHL Class AA Penguins Cup Championship Game. Undoubtedly, the play of goaltender Matt Skoff was the biggest reason for the Spartans reaching the title game. Monday night, Skoff returned to his hometown, as a member of the Penn State hockey team. Skoff and the Nittany Lions will compete in the Three Rivers Classic at Consol Energy Center both Monday and Tuesday.
