"One way or another Corey Augenstein is going to have a big month.

He's going to graduate from Bethel Park High School with a 4.75 GPA, then go on to the University of Pittsburgh in the fall and major in mechanical engineering.

But you'll forgive him if that's not what Augenstein was most excited about this week.

For Augenstein is the Bethel Park baseball team's top pitcher and started the Black Hawks' Class AAAA playoff opener at Gateway High School against Hempfield Area on Wednesday. Considering this future Pitt hurler could start three of the potential four games for Bethel Park in the 15-team WPIAL postseason tournament, coach Tony Fisher will likely be riding Augenstein's left arm for most of the Black Hawks' championship drive."
