One of the most experienced managers in the WPIAL, is coaching one of the youngest teams in the WPIAL. And over halfway through the season, Greensburg Salem's players are hardly showing their age. Golden Lions skipper Jody Morgan, now in her 37th season at the helm, has guided her young team to a 6-4 start. Despite starting five freshmen in most games and playing in one of the toughest sections in Class AAA, Greensburg Salem is in the thick of the playoff hunt. After dropping back-to-back games against defending WPIAL runner-up Yough and non-section foe Freeport, Greensburg Salem bounced back with consecutive section wins over Laurel Highlands and Mount Pleasant. The bats came alive for Greensburg Salem as they scored eight against Laurel Highlands and nine against Mount Pleasant. The wins vaulted Greensburg Salem into a three-way for second place with Mount Pleasant (6-2, 5-2) and Southmoreland (6-2, 5-2).
Five freshmen - Rena Caruso, Tiffany Bruzda, Syndney Tressler, Nikki Mellinger and Megan Kallock - all start, and sophomore Emma Mattei is the leading hitter on the team. Caruso pitches, Bruzda, Tressler and Mattei play in the infield, and Mellinger and Kallock are outfielders.
