The Ambridge softball team was the last Class AAA team from the WPIAL in the PIAA playoffs, but the Bridgers lost in the semifinals after a loss to Fort LeBoeuf. Click here to read Ryan Riordan's story.
"After back-to-back PIAA runner-up finishes in 2010 and '11, Ambridge Area's softball team was eliminated in the district quarterfinals last season and missed qualifying for the state tournament for the first time in three years.
The Bridgers returned eight starters from the 2012 squad who were looking to get back to the state playoffs.
The Bridgers (18-5) returned to the WPIAL title game this season, losing to Greensburg Salem, and were the last team standing from the district in the PIAA Class AAA tournament, losing in the semifinals Tuesday to Fort LeBeouf, 4-1."
