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.

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

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