HS highlight reel: Familiar teams to compete for track titles

| Thursday, April 30, 2015 10:53 p.m

Monday’s WPIAL team track and field championships will feature some familiar teams.

On the boys side, two-time reigning Class AAA champ North Allegheny will try for a three-peat, while recent champs Hempfield, Canon-McMillan and Butler also will compete.

The group has combined to win the past nine titles.

In Class AA, defending champion Beaver will be joined by former champs Washington, Riverside and Freeport.

That group has won the past eight titles.

For the girls, Hempfield returns after winning the past three titles, and will be joined by Norwin — which won from 2005-08 — Mt. Lebanon and five-time champ North Allegheny in Class AAA.

The Class AA girls final will feature Beaver, Mohawk, Southmoreland and 2011-12 champ Freeport. South Fayette won the past two Class AA titles but didn’t qualify for the playoffs this season.

The championship meets will all be held at 4 p.m. Monday at Baldwin.

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.
