No. 1 Norwin baseball team slips past Latrobe
Nick Cubarney pitched a complete game and struck out five to lead Class AAAA No. 1 Norwin (15-0, 10-0) to a 3-1 victory over Latrobe (7-9, 5-5) in Section 2 action Tuesday.
Greensburg C.C. 15, Steel Valley 0 — Allie Perz hit a grand slam in a 12-run fifth inning and drove in five runs, and Greensburg Central Catholic (10-4, 8-3) rolled to a Section 4-AA win. Winning pitcher Anne Marie Gatti allowed one hit and struck out nine.
Chartiers-Houston 13, Serra Catholic 2 — Allie Taylor had two doubles, but it wasn't enough for Serra Catholic (9-8, 5-5) to overcome six errors against Class A No. 1 and defending WPIAL champion Charters-Houston (18-1, 10-0). Serra Catholic had won its past three section games, including one last Wednesday against Avella that helped the Eagles qualify for the WPIAL playoffs.
Mt. Pleasant 7, South Allegheny 1 — Vikings hitters Shayla Landman, Paige Hertzog and Jocelyn Gula each had three hits as part of a 17-hit attack that officially eliminated South Allegheny (6-8, 5-6) from WPIAL Class AA playoff contention. The Lady Gladiators dropped four of their final five Section 4 games, a disappointing finish for a team that qualified for the state playoffs in 2011.
