WPIAL girls lacrosse all-star teams released

Thursday, June 1, 2023 | 5:37 PM

Fox Chapel’s Sydney Schutzman and Mt. Lebanon’s Addie Murdoch in Class 3A and Hampton’s Emi DiLiberto in Class 2A were unanimous selections to the All-WPIAL girls lacrosse teams released Wednesday.

The selections for All-WPIAL in both Class 3A and Class 2A as well as the four all-section teams are based on a vote of the league’s coaches.

Murdoch was a big reason why No. 2 Mt. Lebanon qualified for the WPIAL championship game and earned a spot in the PIAA playoffs.

Schutzman helped No. 3 Fox Chapel reached the WPIAL semifinals before falling to Mt. Lebanon.

Pine-Richland edged Mt. Lebanon for the WPIAL title May 25, and a pair of players from that team, Madeline Mill and Caroline Gentile, were selected to the Class 3A All-WPIAL squad.

Mt. Lebanon’s Brian Kattan is the Class 3A Coach of the Year.

DiLiberto fronted a Hampton team that finished runner-up to Plum in Section 1-2A and made the WPIAL quarterfinals.

Mars won its second WPIAL Class 2A title in three years, and Mya Cote and Charlotte Stamper represented the Planets with All-WPIAL nods.

First-year Plum coach Domenic Barnebei, who helped guide the Mustangs to their first section title and a No. 2 playoff seed, was selected the Class 2A Coach of the Year.
