who are the favorites in softball this year ?


Bob, after 20 years of posting on the football page , this will be my first post in softball. Who has a shot to win wpial and state titles this year ?

I love high school softball.  I umpired the high school fast pitch teams for a number of years and saw some wonderful players. I really have not studied the teams yet, but Hempfield usually has a good team each year.

Here is a link to last season final standings:

It will be interesting what Hempfield does post Morgan Ryan, I know they have the ushock girl that has been waiting to pitch. I'm sure they will very solid. What about team like Latrobe, Franklin Regional and Penn Township , I hear they have a ton of offense again.

Upsets rule the day in the WPIAL Softball Semifinals:

6A  #3  Latrobe over #2 Baldwin, 2-0
5A #11 Thomas Jefferson over #2 Albert Gallatin, 2-0, 8 inn.
4A  #6  Elizabeth-Forward over #2 Yough, 7-2
4A  #4  Belle Vernon over #1 Mt. Pleasant, 1-0
3A  #3  Southmoreland over #2 Freeport, 6-4
2A  #6  Laurel over #2 Chartiers-Houston, 9-5

That's half of the semifinals won by lower seeded teams.

Here's the rest of the scores:

6A #1 Hempfield over #5 Norwin, 5-3
5A #1 West Allegheny over #5 Connellsville, 7-2
3A #1 South Park over #4 Avonworth, 14-1
2A #1 Frazier over #4 Mohawk, 8-4
1A #1 West Greene over #4 Union, 8-2
1A #2 Monessen over #3 Leechburg, 5-2

New year about to start , hope it warms up a bit ....Who is looking strong this year
