Not a peep.

Okay, just got a lead on one....

I'm 'hearing' (not nearly definite) that Penn-Trafford/Peters Township is at West Mifflin...

And exactly what is the purpose of delaying the official listing of these sites?

I am hearing WM for PT/PT.

My guess in Norwin for Gateway/McKeesport.

That would be at least the second time Gateway will play on the site of the Championship. Might give them some kind of an edge to play 3rd time in 3 weeks there.
Was Penn Trafford at WM last week, too?

PT was at WM. I thought about the idea that they might switch them up for this week. I agree with Bob - this week should not be so hard. Only 4 games to place - everyone else at Heinz.

PIAA had STATEWIDE Soccer, Volleyball and Football sites posted by 12 noon today...ALL of them.

WPIAL only needs 4 sites, already had them calculated out based on all of the possible outcomes and here we sit, and wait, and wait, and wait.
Let's get at least into the 20th century...

That's fine - a neutral site is a neutral site - the point is, just announce it!

Does anyone in the WPIAL office have a map?  Sending those teams to Greensburg seems a bit ludicrous to me...or am I missing something?  I guess Hempfield was not far enough to send McKessport.  I know a lot of schools are not available this time of year..but really.  This is a good reason to do like Dist. 3 and play the higher rated team on their home field.

5A Penn-Trafford vs. Peters Township at West Mifflin--THREE broadcasts plus writers, coaches and game operations in that press box.
5A Gateway vs. McKeesport at Greensburg Salem--TWO broadcasts plus writers, coaches and game operations in that press box...

2A Washington vs. Brentwood at Chartiers Valley--TWO broadcasts plus writers, coaches and game operations in that press box.
2A Avonworth vs. Riverside at West Allegheny--TWO broadcasts plus writers, coaches and game operations in that press box.

Not going to be a lot of fun working Friday night, that's for sure.

At least the WM press box has a men's room up there and an elevator, too. :)

and, likely, both will be used for media coverage of the game...Two radio broadcasts, TribHSSN Video Stream production, Trib & PG & OR newspaper coverage, game operations, coaches, several WPIAL-types (no doubt) and there's just not going to be enough room.
