Shaler notebook: Titans girls bowling finishes ninth in WPIBL

| Monday, Feb. 19, 2018, 12:26 a.m.

The Shaler girls bowling team finished ninth at the WPIBL championships last Friday held at Family Bowl Away. The Titans missed the stepladder finals, won by Butler, but knocked down 2,197 pins to finish in the top 10.

Bella Pilyih led Shaler with a 531 series and rolled a team-best game of 197. Shannon Reche (434), Lindsay Gill (429), Ella Richards (406) and Sydney McBurney (397) rounded out the top five for the Titans.

The Titans will compete in the individual event this weekend.

Franklin leads Shaler

Senior John Franklin placed fourth in the 60-meter hurdles at TSTCA indoor track and field championships Saturday at Edinboro. Franklin, who placed eighth in the preliminaries, ran a time of 8.62 seconds in the finals, finishing .01 seconds behind Hempfield's Jared Bannon for third place.

Other Shaler athletes earning top-10 finishes: Adeline Kubisek, 10th, high jump, 4-9 12; Danielle Eshelman, seventh, mile, 5:27.35; Claire Schreiber, eighth, triple jump, 33-1 ½.

Win and they're in

Two goals from Cameron Wycich helped Shaler hockey defeat Hempfield, 5-2, last week and move into fifth place in the PIHL Class AA's South/East Division. Wycich, who also assisted on two of the Titans' other goals, leads Shaler with 35 points.

Shaler (9-7) will play Franklin Regional on Monday in a game that ended too late for this edition to wrap up the season. A win by the Titans or a loss by Baldwin puts Shaler back in the playoffs.

Against the Spartans, Shaler took a 4-0 lead into the third period and coasted to a win.

All in the family

The Shaler boys swimming program picked up a couple of WPIAL individual qualifiers from the same bloodline. Stephen and Justin Adametz qualified in in different events. Stephen qualified in the 100 fly, and Justin made it in the 100 back.

Both helped the Titans qualify in the 200 free relay, 400 free relay and 200 medley relay.

Five swimmers — Lydia Nebiolo, Jenna Stanton, Josh Owczarzak and the Adametz brothers — have hit individual marks.

The WPIAL championships will be held March 1-2 at the Pitt's Trees Pool.
