WPIAL Friday Night HighLights – Week Six
October 10, 2015
While the mercury continues to dip as October and autumn settle in, the lineup of big games was red hot up and down the FOUR classifications around the WPIAL. Battles for first place here, showdowns between unbeaten teams there, big games, big games everywhere. Some of them lived up to their billing and thrilled the huge crowds on hands, some were closer early before the final results was no so tight, and others were just an old fashioned butt whipping. Whatever the case, big game or not, here are the players that stood out in various playoff like atmosphere's in only Week Six. Philip Jurkovec - Pine-Richland

Chicks Picks – Week 6 – 2015
October 8, 2015
Welcome to Week 6 of the high school football season. Friday nights at MSA Sports World Headquarters are hard work.  As a reward, The Boss provides delicious dinner for the crew from the best pizza place in town.  Last week, an unfamiliar delivery man showed up with the evening’s provisions.  As he handed over the order, however, it became obvious that something was not right. When the crew began to question the delivery man, he panicked and ran for the exit—right into the regular delivery man who was bringing the actual order.  The spill caused the impersonator to lose the contents of his pockets, including his cell phone, which happened to start ringing at that exact moment—caller I.D.: The Fumbler.

WPIAL Big Game Hunting – Week Three – 09/16/2015
September 16, 2015
Time is inexorable, I know that, but nonetheless I find myself wanting to slow things down once the WPIAL football season begins. For a lot of reasons, to give myself more time to prepare for my game, to be able to have a little extra time to enjoy what is for me the best time of the year, to slow the inevitable cold-weather from getting here and, to lengthen the deadline to get Big Game Hunting into the Boss. I don’t have to tell you how he can be when you get on his bad side. Time goes by fast, and the older you get the faster it goes. Week three is here and I am almost ready with my pre-season Big Game Hunting. Speaking of time, how long has it been since the Thomas Jefferson Jaguars started a season 0-2?

CTK 2015 – Class AAA Greater Allegheny Conference Preview
August 21, 2015
While West Allegheny and Central Valley have battled back and forth atop the Parkway Conference and Thomas Jefferson has reigned supreme in the former Big Nine Conference, the Greater Allegheny Conference has had a number of intriguing teams that have enjoyed success recently. Last year, Hampton captured the top spot, while perennial powerhouse Franklin Regional finished in second. Mars, a team which has been near the top of the standings in recent years, overcame key injuries to still contend and make a playoff run. Conference newcomer Gateway, which was a powerhouse for more than a decade in Quad-A, proved disappointing for most of its debut season.

Scholastic Notebook – 03/06/2015
March 6, 2015
Chassidy Omogrosso is Blackhawk’s Energizer bunny. The senior guard on the Blackhawk girls basketball team seemingly never stops on the court. Her motor is stuck on overdrive. While Comcast has bundle deals for cable television, Blackhawk has a bundle full of energy in Omogrosso. Omogrosso’s “run” through the recent WPIAL tournament was one to behold. She was close to unstoppable in the Class AAA playoffs, leading the Cougars to a second consecutive WPIAL title last Saturday at Pitt’s Petersen Events Center. No one has records for what is the greatest playoff run – scoring wise – for WPIAL girls basketball. But Omogrosso has to be somewhere near the top.

February 7, 2015
Last weekend at the WPIAL Championships, Franklin Regional had to win both of their matches by winning the last bout. At the PIAA Championships in Hershey, it wasn’t the last bout of the night, but it still took a pair of tight wins for the Panthers to repeat as PIAA Champs. After defeating Spring Ford 49-18 and Council Rock South 45-13, Franklin Regional, ranked #2 in the state, would take on the #1 ranked team in Bethlehem Catholic in the semi-finals. After jumping out to a 9-4 lead, Franklin Regional would get upset at 152 pounds. Senior Josh Maruca would drop a 3-2 decision to Michael Labriola. Although Josh Shields would come out to pickup a technical fall win, the loss by Maruca kept the marginal lead to seven at 14-7.
