» Highlands senior basketball standout Mike Trenski opted not to play in Saturday's Cager Classic because he expected invitations into two other all-star games. His plans have come to fruition. Already invited to the Roundball Classic on April 17 at Geneva College, Trenski will also play in the Kenny Durrett Classic on April 10 at Gateway High School. Trenski will play for the WPIAL against the City League all-stars in the 8 p.m. game. Seven games will be played that day, ranging from the middle-school level to high school girls varsity, to an alumni game between Pitt and Duquesne players. Four local girls and two other boys also will play in the Roundball Classic. The girls are Fox Chapel's Jenny Papich, St. Joseph's Jacqi Diez, Ford City's Liz Shiring and Riverview's Caty Kumar. The boys are Deer Lakes' Ryan Stanko and Fox Chapel's Jake Wilfong. The boys' Class AAAA all-stars will play Class AAA at 6 p.m., followed by Class AA against Class A at 8. There will be one girls game, featuring a team of Class AAAA and A all-stars against a Class AAA-AA team. That game is set for 4 p.m.

Seniors are only allowed to play in two all-star games.

» Baseball teams at Fox Chapel and Plum will start the season in Florida. Plum will play two scrimmages and four games in St. Petersburg and surrounding areas, while Fox Chapel does the same in Bradenton. The teams will begin play Thursday. The southern swing has almost become a ritual for Plum. This will be the fifth straight year the Mustangs have opened the year in Florida. It will be the third time in four years the Foxes have traveled south. "We'll get nine practices and have two-a-days when we're not playing games," Foxes coach Don Schubert said. "It'll be great to get out on the field and see live pitching."
