Baldwin jumped ahead quickly in the bottom of the first, putting up four runs in the inning, capitalizing on two Bethel Park errors. Cassie Carlson led off the bottom of the first with a walk and reached second on an error when second baseman Carolyn Cook dropped the first part of a potential...

Call it a changing of the guard or a passing of the torch. Whatever you choose, you can call Seneca Valley boys, Riverside boys, Butler Girls and Burrell girls NEW WPIAL Track & Field champions. In 2016, three of the four WPIAL Track & Field teams that claimed district gold were repeat champions. In fact, two programs had mini-dynasties going on as North Allegheny boys had won four straight Class 3-A titles while Hempfield girls had gone one better with five consecutive Class 3-A crowns.
