Scholastic Notebook – 10/14/2016
October 14, 2016
At least in two respects, there has never been a fall sports season like this at Derry Area High School. The Derry football team is perfect and the girls soccer team is headed to the postseason. No one has ever been able to say those two things before. Derry’s football team is 7-0. The last time Derry was 7-0 was 1983. That year, the Trojans lost their eighth game to Greensburg Central Catholic. Derry will try to go 8-0 with a win against Ellwood City Friday. Derry has never had a regular season with a perfect record. Derry Township had a perfect record in the 1930s, but that was before the school merged with Derry Borough to form Derry Area.

October 13, 2016
Between 1986 and 1993, North Allegheny won six WPIAL girls team golf championships including four straight between '86 and '89. A 22-year drought ended last year and it only took 12 months for the Tigers to add to their golden club collections with an 8th district title. NA edged Shady Side Academy by one stroke Thursday to win the 3-A crown. Meanwhile, Greensburg Central Catholic remained perfect in Class 2-A...two years of having a girls golf team and a second straight WPIAL championship after a three stroke victory over former champ Central Valley at the Cedarbrook Golf Course in Rostraver. Here are all of the results from the 2016 WPIAL Girls Team Golf Playoffs. WPIAL CLASS 3-A GIRLS TEAM GOLF CHAMPIONSHIP FINALS:

Scholastic Notebook – 09/23/2016

At Mapletown, Rush rushes. A lot. Dylan Rush is a junior running back at Mapletown who has enjoyed a big season so far. He is the second-leading rusher in the WPIAL with 1,027 yards. The only running back who is ahead of him is Armstrong’s Zane Dudek, who has 1,201. Rush stands only 5 feet 9 and weighs 180 pounds. You have to wonder how strong Rush’s back is, because he is carrying the Mapletown team on it. Rush’s number of carries isn’t on the high side. It’s on the ridiculous side. In four games, Rush has carried the ball 147 times. That’s 36.8 times a game. The rest of Mapletown’s team has 31 carries. On top of that, Mapletown has thrown 22 passes – and Rush has attempted seven of them.

Chicks Picks for Week Two
September 8, 2016
Welcome to Week 2 of the high school football season. Chick’s Picks has been fortunate enough to make a lot of friends throughout her prognosticating career – some that are unforgettable, and others that she cares to forget.  One of Chick’s Picks’ favorites happens to be a very dear Twitter pal, who happens to be the better half of a local coach.  This Twitter pal in particular has stood by Chick’s Picks through good times and bad – weeks when the crystal ball was on fire, as well as weeks when early retirement was considered.  Earlier this season, during Week Zero, Chick’s Picks’ pal even came through with her own prediction when the crystal ball was in the shop for maintenance.
