Hockey: 2015 PIHL preview

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Keith Barnes previews the 2015-16 high school hockey season.

"Shaler had a successful run playing in Class AA.

Not only did the Titans win the Eastern Conference, but they also rolled to the Penguins Cup semifinals before losing a disheartening overtime game against Armstrong.

Now, thanks to the PIHL's annual realignment, Shaler is bidding Class AA farewell, moving back up to Class AAA where it made a home for 34 years before its one-year exile. Shaler is one of the teams to watch in district hockey this year. The season kicked off Monday night and Shaler begins play tonight against Canon-McMillan.

"The biggest difference between the two classes is you have to have three competitive lines and a deeper bench," Shaler coach Tim Bosack said. "Last year for most of the season, we only had two lines and that's just not possible in [Class AAA] hockey and there are much better goaltenders. We've really been working on putting the puck in the net.""



High School Football Notebook (Oct. 5, 2015)

Mike White has today's High School Football Notebook.

"Farrell High School is like the prodigal son of the WPIAL. The question is will Farrell be allowed to return?

Farrell had a rich sports tradition in the WPIAL (District 7) before leaving the league in 2006 and joining District 10. Now Farrell wants to come back to the WPIAL and it is up to the PIAA to decide the Steelers' fate.

District 10 has voted to not let Farrell out of the district. The matter now goes to the PIAA, and the PIAA will vote Wednesday whether to allow Farrell to leave District 10 and return to the WPIAL. Farrell is near Sharon in Mercer County.

"When we moved to District 10 before, it was under a different athletic director, different coaches and a lot different school board," said Farrell football coach Jarrett Samuels, in his eighth season. "We've been trying to get back to the WPIAL for the last six years. We're just hoping we can get the OK from the PIAA.""
