“Mr. High School Sports” – Vikings Still A Central Figure In Title Race

If there is a team in the Northern Eight that can out-tough North Allegheny, it might be able to challenge for even more than a conference crown. In Week 2, locked in a battle of attrition with North Hills, Central Catholic proved with its 14-0 win at CMU’s Gesling Stadium it can muscle its way to Heinz Field.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Parkway Players Prepared For Prime Time

In its first year of existence Central Valley won the WPIAL Class AAA championship after falling to Montour in Week 6 of the 2010 regular season. In 2011 Central Valley picked up where it left off by beating Montour en route to the conference title, but the Spartans made the champs take their medicine in the district semifinals before capturing their first Class AAA crown since 1964.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AAAA Foothills Conference Outlook

We’re going to keep our preseason coverage going with a series of rapid-fire previews, focusing on the Foothills Conference in Class AAAA, which has stayed chiefly intact through biennial realignment in the district. Furthermore, the WPIAL title candidacy of Gateway, which has dominated the conference for years, remains as strong as ever.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AAAA Southeastern Conference Outlook

Merging teams from the Great Southern and Big East Conferences, this could rival the Parkway as the most talented from top to bottom in District 7.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AAAA Northern Eight Conference Outlook

The defending Quad-A champs are once again the team to beat, but now they must deal directly with a team capable of dethroning them.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AAA Northeastern Conference Outlook

This new conference, a result of the Greater Allegheny more or less merging with the Keystone, per biennial district realignment, features two of last year’s WPIAL semifinalists and another team that could go on a lengthy playoff run in 2012.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AAA Parkway Conference Outlook

We’re going to keep our preseason coverage going with a series of rapid-fire previews, focusing on the Parkway Conference in Class AAA, perhaps the toughest of them all. For six consecutive seasons at least one team from this section has reached Heinz Field, and quite frankly, we foresee 2012 becoming the seventh.

“Mr. High School Sports” – Quick Outs: Class AAA Big Nine Conference Outlook

We’re going to keep our preseason coverage going with a series of rapid-fire previews, shifting our attention now to Class AAA and looking at the Big Nine Conference. This section may have expanded, but it remains doubtful that the dominance of the conference by Thomas Jefferson will be challenged like it was in 2011.

“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.
