What will it take to repeat as Penguin Cup and state champions?

"My dad (Jeff) always watched the Penguins on TV when I was young and he got me involved in Dek Hockey and I loved it."

What is something people don't know about you?

"I like to fish. I fish a lot in the Loyalhanna Creek for trout and smallmouth bass. I like being in the outdoors. It allows me to be myself and not worry about anything."

What advice would you give classmate Natalie Bower as she prepares for the PIAA Class AAA cross country championships?

"Keep up what you're already doing. She works hard, and any time she runs she has a chance at winning the title."

Look out for

Latrobe hockey team

With 15 seniors returning from last year's Penguins Cup and state championship team, the Latrobe hockey team looks for another great season in Class AA.

Latrobe (1-0) opened the season with a 7-1 victory over Elizabeth Forward. JeffJoe Regula scored a hat trick.

Regula, Kevin McCurdy and Ryan LaDuke, who missed last year with an injury, are some of the top scorers on the squad. Brody Aukerman is the team's top defenseman, while goaltender Nick Loyacona returns.

Latrobe plays South Park at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Castle Shannon.

"They beat us twice last year," Regula said. "We have a little revenge on our minds. We have a ton of players who are back."

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.
