Congratulations to our competitive-driven winter athletes who have successfully advanced to the WPIAL playoffs.

The boys and girls varsity swim teams finished the season as the 2018 WPIAL back-to-back section champions, defeating a then-undefeated Brentwood team to claim the section title. The team will send 17 swimmers to the WPIAL championships at the University of Pittsburgh March 1-2.  Those swimmers include seniors Dominic Darenkamp and Kevin MacMurdo, juniors Avery Brehm, Molly Badger, Julie Carothers, Anthony Killen, Katie Kozy, Claire Schriver, Amy Ulizzi, and Bishop Canevin co-op swimmer Coulton Gaitens, and freshmen Marco Lopez, Natali Lutsiv, Sara MacMurdo, Gina Ulizzi, Evan Walker, and Bishop Canevin co-op swimmers Carson Gaitens and Jack Mickle. The team is coached by Mike Schneiderlochner and Emily Brill. This year, swimmers have qualified to compete in every event of the WPIAL championships.

The varsity boys bowling team saw success this year under the direction of Coach Dan Kuhn and sent senior Owen Kalimon, junior Gabriel Prepelka and sophomore Sam Koval to the WPIAL playoffs. The trio competed in the section February 21 in North Versailles.

Varsity wrestlers Ed Huehn (sophomore) and Oleg Melnyk (freshman) advanced to the WPIAL Regionals to be held February 23 on the campus of Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Coached by alumni wrestler Jesse Valentine, the small but mighty wrestling team has made its mark among student athletes.

The varsity boys’ basketball team headed to the WPIAL playoffs last Friday, February 16 to battle and defeat Brownsville by a score of 70-55.  The team did not fare as well in the second round of the playoffs, falling to top-ranked Lincoln Park in a game played February 19th at North Catholic High School. Led by head coach Mike Kozy, the boys made the playoffs last year as well. Seniors Justin Deitrich, Tayvel Hutchinson, and Ian Gallagher made a significant contribution to this year’s team.
