“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AA Interstate Conference Outlook

We’re going to keep our preseason coverage going with a series of rapid-fire previews, focusing now on the Interstate Conference in Class AA. The most prominent and rancorous rivalry is the one shared between Greensburg Central Catholic and Jeannette, which fell just short of a district championship in 2011. Despite a surprising coaching change at GCC, the Centurions could follow in the footsteps of the Jayhawks in 2012.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AA Midwestern Conference Outlook

We’re going to keep our preseason coverage going with a series of rapid-fire previews, focusing now on the Midwestern Conference in Class AA. Last year the WPIAL champions in this classification came from the MAC, which isn’t anything new. It’s usually one of the toughest sections in the district. What is new is the fact that biennial WPIAL realignment has left it with eight teams.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AA Allegheny Conference Outlook

We’re going to keep our preseason coverage going with a series of rapid-fire previews, focusing now on the Allegheny Conference in Class AA. Even amidst biennial realignment in the WPIAL, this league tends to stay pretty much the same, especially in terms of its unpredictability. What we can predict is, just like last fall, there are at least three teams who could seriously challenge for the conference title.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AA Century Conference Outlook

We’re going to keep our preseason coverage going with a series of rapid-fire previews, moving up to Class AA and focusing our attention on the Century Conference. We can already feel the brotherly love…well, sort of. Two siblings are playing for two different teams who should challenge for playoff spots, and possibly more, this season.

While the Erie Cathedral Prep football team has begun its quest to avenge last year’s loss in the District 10 Class AAA Final, the hockey program has begun open tryouts at all levels as the varsity squad looks to atone for its own championship game defeat.

It may be the middle of summer, but it’s not too early to start thinking about either the fall or winter sports season for Pittsburghers, and hockey annually bridges the gap between the two.
