CALLIE FREY & SPENCER CARAVAGGIO WIN 2012 WPIAL GIRLS SINGLES TENNIS TITLES

A returning champion and a first-time winner are wearing the gold Friday after winning titles in the 2012 WPIAL Girls Singles Tennis Championships at North Allegheny High School. Quaker Valley senior Spencer Caravaggio won her second WPIAL title with a straight set victory over freshman Alyvia Kluska of Greensburg Central Catholic. Caravaggio overcame a shoulder injury which forced her to serve underhand to claim the title she won as a sophomore in 2010. Meanwhile, Mount Lebanon junior Callie Frey was a straight set winner over rival Megan Adamo of Upper St. Clair. Here are all of the results, including the two consolation winners from the first WPIAL postseason of the 2012-2013 school year.

Chicks Picks - Week Four

Welcome to Week 4 of the high school football season.  After hearing of the West Shamokin win over Riverview Friday night that ended a WPIAL record 45-game losing streak, Chick’s Picks knew this was cause for celebration.  She contacted her people in Rural Valley, PA, offering to throw a party for the victorious Wolves in honor of their win.  The plans were in place, so Chick’s Picks hopped in her car and headed north to kick off the festivities.

District College Football Preview for Saturday, September 22nd

Week 4 of the college football season will kickoff on Saturday with 2 games right here on the Network. Conference play continues, including a battle for the top spot in the PSAC West in the Coal Bowl as IUP and Cal square off.

Here are previews of ALL the games, recaps coming your way Sunday morning:

Slippery Rock(2-1) at Mercyhurst(2-1)  1pm on WISR 680-AM and the MSA Sports Network
The Rock got great defense in a win over Gannon last week at home. Isaiah Coleman picked off two passes and led the team with 12 tackles, the sophomore was named PSAC West Defensive Player of the Week. The defense picked off 4 passes and made 3 sacks in a 38-18 win.

Also, the SRU defense is tied for the D-II lead in team interceptions with 8.

Big Game Hunting for Week Four

Rolling through the 2012 season in a hurry as week four comes upon us here in southwestern Pennsylvania, leaves and the weather starting to change. Not much change though at the top of the MSA Sports top ten rankings. The defending champs in each classification all sit atop their thrones with unbeaten records as we approach the midway point. But 2012 is not just a case of the rich getting richer by any stretch. Avella is 3-0 for the first time since 1976 and West Shamokin snapped the longest losing streak in WPIAL history with their 25-6 win over Riverview last Friday. Some change can be good. All this change can make it tough on the “Big Game Hunting” guy, but hey, he’s a gamer.

The Rock trailed early at home against the Golden Knights to open PSAC West Division play, but took control in the first quarter and claimed the victory over the team that cost them the outright division title one year ago.

WPIAL Week Three Friday Night HighLights

A little rain never hurt anybody, especially teen-age kids wanted to roll around on the natural surface, aka mud, or slide around on the artificial stuff. Most games were affected in one way or another by rainfall in the early part of the evening throughout Southwestern Pennsylvania, but these players laughed at the elements...and their opponents in enjoying a huge night on the third Friday of the 2012 campaign.
