The WPIAL granted a fifth year of eligibility for Steel Valley's Dom Keyes, a standout basketball player for the Ironmen.

Keyes, a fourth-year junior, attended a hearing Monday at the WPIAL office in Green Tree. Executive director Tim O'Malley revealed the board's decision Tuesday.

A 6-foot-6 center, Keyes averaged 15 points, 14 rebounds and 3.5 blocks last season. Without the waiver, he would have been ineligible next season.

Also Monday, the WPIAL granted eligibility for North Allegheny-to-OLSH transfer Sarah Shaheen, who plays volleyball, but denied a fifth-year request from Laurel Highland football player Ricky Cordes.

Lincoln Park sophomore Nick Aloi has an eligibility hearing Wednesday, after the WPIAL holds its annual meeting. A basketball player, Aloi transferred in January from Ellwood City, where he averaged 15 points as a freshman.
