One of the contenders for the Class AA Section 4 title has stepped up its game.
A 1-2 start in the rearview mirror, Greensburg Central Catholic has won three of its past four games. The Centurions are now 4-3 overall and entered Monday's play with a 2-1 section record, which put them just behind Steel Valley (5-0, 3-0) and Shady Side Academy (3-3, 2-0).
A trip to South Carolina in late March saw the Centurions stumble in two of their three games, but since coming back north, the number in the win column has ascended, as well. The team's recent run included wins against South Allegheny (12-10), Greensburg Salem (8-1) and Southmoreland (9-0).
The Centurions' only loss in the last two weeks came at Steel Valley, 12-4, last Thursday. The Centurions led, 4-1, in that game, only to see Steel Valley score 11 unanswered runs to run away with the win.
