Dutch Shaffer

School: Kiski Area

Class: Senior

Sport: Soccer

Claim to fame: Shaffer, who has been battling ankle injuries all season, scored twice, including the winning goal with seven minutes remaining, to lead Kiski Area (8-4, 6-2) to a 2-1 win over Penn-Trafford in Section 1-AAA on Sept. 24. Shaffer, who has five goals this season, scored twice against Gateway on Sept. 10.

What are your college plans for next year?

I plan to go to Penn State Behrend and major in plastics engineering. I haven't fully committed to playing soccer or to Penn State Behrend in particular. I really enjoy cars. I wanted to help design them. It's a hard field to getting into. It interests me quite a bit.

Royse Bachtel

School: Penn-Trafford

Class: Senior

Sport: Golf

Claim to fame: Bachtel, who has helped lead Penn-Trafford to a Section 3-AA title for the fourth year in a row, finished tied for fourth place as she shot 83 in the Section 3-AAA tournament at Vandergrift Golf Club in early September. Bachtel finished in 12th place at the WPIAL Class AAA Championship at Hill Crest Country Club on Monday.

What are your college plans for next year?

Nothing is set yet. I have been looking at Baldwin-Wallace, Allegheny and Mt. Union. I definitely want to play golf in college and major in either political science or English.

Who do you think is the best on your team?

I think we all have areas that we have perfected. Casey Doran, Rachel Huber and I have gotten our consistency together. We can deliver with a big shot when we need it. We all understand our roles on the team.
