The season ended Monday night for the Sewickley Academy girls soccer team.

After earning a 3-0 victory over Beth-Center in a WPIAL Class A preliminary-round game Saturday, the Panthers dropped a 5-0 decision to top-seeded Greensburg Central Catholic in a first-round match Monday night at Norwin.

Bailey Cartwright, the WPIAL's all-time leading scorer, netted three goals and had two assists to lead No. 1 Greensburg Central Catholic (17-1). Sewickley Academy finished the season 7-10-3.

Golf

Sewickley Academy's and Quaker Valley's golf teams were well represented at the PIAA West Region individual qualifier Oct. 17, at Chestnut Ridge's Tom's Run Golf Course.

Quaker Valley's Chris Tanabe shot 73 and tied for medalist honors in Class AA with Laurel's Evan Long, who won in a tiebreaker playoff hole.

Sewickley Academy's Ryan Gex and Jason Li tied for fifth (76), and Will Nocito was 14th (79). All four local players qualified for the PIAA tournament, which was held earlier this week.

In the Class AA girls regional, Sewickley Academy's Tatum McKelvey shot 76 and finished second behind Greensburg Central Catholic's Olivia Zambruno (75).

Girls tennis

Sewickley Academy's tandem of Alina Mattson and Morgan Recker captured the Section 4-AA doubles title last week with a 2-6, 6-1, 7-5 victory over Ellis School's Marcella Gerszten and Stephanie Ohori.

Their SA teammates, Lydia Elste and Olivia McLeod, also advanced to the WPIAL tournament with a win by injury default over Winchester Thurston's Emma Famili and Roshni Nischal in the consolation match.

Both Sewickley Academy teams were eliminated in the first round of the WPIAL tournament last Thursday.

Girls volleyball

The Quaker Valley girls volleyball team wrapped up section play last week with a 3-1 loss to Hopewell and a 3-0 win over Freedom. The Quakers finished 4-8 in Section 2-AA, good for fifth place, one win away from a playoff berth.

They finished behind Beaver (12-0), Avonworth (10-2), Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic (8-4) and Hopewell (5-7).
