Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League set for Week 2 of game action

Friday, September 10, 2021 | 5:01 PM

The Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Softball League began its varsity season last Sunday with a pair of doubleheaders, and game action involving the 12 teams continues Sunday at six fields around the Pittsburgh region.

Peters Township and Bethel Park each are 2-0 after sweeps of Mt Lebanon and Seneca Valley, respectively.

Rain forced the postponement of four Week 1 doubleheaders.

Last weekend also saw kickoff tournaments for teams in the junior high and junior varsity divisions.

Shaler captured the JV tournament with a 6-0 overall record. It went 3-0 in pool play and 3-0 in the bracketed playoffs, defeating Montour (4-2 overall) by a 12-1 score in the championship game.

Mt. Lebanon Blue won the junior high tournament with a win over Montour, 13-8, in the championship game. It went 2-0 in pool play and was 4-1 in the bracket playoffs.
