No. 1 Norwin baseball team slips past Latrobe

| Tuesday, May 1, 2012, 11:32 p.m.

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.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
