High School Notebook (Aug. 24, 2014)

Written by Mike White on .

Here's today's edition of Mike White's High School Notebook.

"Upper St. Clair has hopes of pulling off a first in boys soccer — win three consecutive PIAA titles.

But the Panthers will have to do it without their highly successful coach, who was injured in an accident at his home last month.

Uwe Schneider, who has won four state championships in 10 years as coach, was hanging shudders last month at his house in Mt. Lebanon when the ladder fell, according to Upper St. Clair athletic director Matt Mellinger. Schneider fell two stories and both of his legs were broken. He sustained multiple broken bones in his left leg and had surgery to put pins and rods in the leg. He had another surgery for an infection in the leg.

Schneider was in the hospital for more than two weeks. He decided to not coach this season and also will take time off as a German teacher at Upper St. Clair High School."



Golf: 2014 Five Things to Watch

Written by Brad Everett on .

Here are five things to keep an eye on during the 2014 golf season.

*Canon-McMillan's Lauren Waller has a great shot of successfully defending her WPIAL Class AAA individual title and could be in the running to win her first PIAA title. Waller, a senior and Penn State recruit, claimed top honors at the WPIAL and PIAA Western Regional championships before finishing in a tie for third at the PIAA championships.

*The Upper St. Clair boys (Class AAA) and Central Valley girls (Class AA) each swept WPIAL and PIAA titles last season, but being hit hard by graduation will make it tough for the teams to repeat. This is particularly true for Upper St. Clair, which graduated all five of its top players, including PIAA individual champ Grant Engel. Central Valley lost WPIAL and PIAA individual champ Macky Fouse and teammate Marissa Sudar. The Warriors do return junior Maddy McDanel and sophomore Alex Bozich.
