Notebook: Benic transfer approved

| Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2004

Oakland Catholic tennis player Shannon Benic was among over 70 transfers approved by the WPIAL Board of Control Monday. Benic played for Winchester Thurston as a freshman, then transferred to Ellis School, where she teamed with Natalie Castagnero to reach the WPIAL Class AA doubles finals the last two seasons, winning in 2002 and losing last year.

Benic left Ellis for Mercersburg Academy, but transferred again to Oakland Catholic.

Benic had already been temporarily eligible with a based-on letter from the WPIAL.

Central Catholic sophomore defensive tackle Stefan Wisniewski is still playing on a based-on letter. The board of control voted to table a vote approving his transfer from South Fayette while executive director Larry Hanley collects more information.

  • The WPIAL Class AAA and AA girls' singles championships will be held Monday and Tuesday at Shady Side Academy tennis courts. The participants will be decided after today's second day of section tournament play.

    You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

    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.
