State Sen. James Brewster honored the Clairton football team and coach Tom Nola in Harrisburg for the Bears becoming the first WPIAL team to win four consecutive PIAA Class A titles.

Terrish Webb and Titus Howard represented the players.

Clairton has won 63 consecutive games and five consecutive WPIAL Class A titles, and the current senior class finished their careers with a record of 63-1.

College baseball

After losing its first game of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association Small College World Series, Penn State Greater Allegheny began the long road to a possible national championship with a pair of victories Tuesday in the losers' bracket.

Greater Allegheny opened the day with a 6-1 win over St. Joseph's of Brooklyn as All-American pitcher Evan James threw a two-hitter, striking out eight. In the nightcap, the Lions beat Briarcliffe (N.Y.), 2-0, as Dan Laird scattered five hits over six innings and struck out seven before Eric Schell closed it out with a scoreless seventh.

Greater Allegheny will play Lindenwood-Belleville at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Pullman Park.

High schools

Serra Catholic nearly pulled off an upset as it prepared for its second consecutive appearance in the WPIAL Class A softball playoffs, but Melissa LeClair and Karlie Serakowski hit back-to-back homers off Sam Andrekanic in the bottom of the seventh to give Class AAAA Plum an 11-10 victory in a nonsection game.

Haley Havrilla went 3 for 5 with a double, three RBI and scored two runs for the Eagles.
