Two Norwin girls teams suffer first losses

Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012, 8:57 p.m.
 

Norwin's second-ranked girls soccer team fell into a three-way tie atop Section 1-AAA with its first loss of the year, 2-0, at home against Penn-Trafford on Monday.

Karina Wallace scored in the first half for the Warriors (7-3-0, 5-1-0) and Elizabeth Buck added an insurance goal in the 73rd minute after P-T won a indirect free kick inside the Norwin (7-1-1, 5-1-0) penalty area.

The Knights and Warriors are tied with Franklin Regional for first place in the section.

Volleyball falls

Norwin split a pair of Section 1-AAA volleyball matches last week, the second of which was the team's first section loss of the season.

The Knights defeated Kiski Area, 25-13, 25-20, 23-25, 25-13, but fell to Latrobe, 25-22, 25-23, 25-23, which put Norwin (7-2, 5-1) in a tie for second in the section entering this week.

Also of note was the donation of the 50/50 at the Kiski Area match to the Flourescent Angels, a Relay for Life fund in memory of former Norwin assistant coach Jaime Moran, who lost her battle with leukemia earlier this year. The winner of the 50/50 also donated the winnings to the fun.

Baseball golf outing

Norwin baseball's annual golf outing, a 1 p.m. shotgun start, is Oct. 13 at Madison Golf Club.

Cost to participate is $100 for adults and $69 for youths, which included golf, prizes, refreshments at the turn and an Italian dinner buffet.

For more information on registering to play or being a sponsor, contact Tom Smith at 724-396-0701 or Jane Pribanic at 412-860-5341. The registration deadline is Oct. 5.
