Track: Beaver Falls' Peretta a threat to win two titles

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Ryan Riordan profiles Beaver Falls track standout Dom Peretta.

"Beaver Falls was missing one of its 3,200-meter runners at the Beaver County Invitational April 12, so Tigers coach St. Clair Williams decided to throw Dom Peretta into the race.

It was the last race of the day for Peretta, who had already won the 800 and 1,600 meters at the event.

So Williams told him to take the first mile slow and then give whatever he had left on the second mile.

Peretta had enough to win the event in 10:16."

Boys Basketball: Beaver Falls has handled lots of adversity

Written by Drew Karpen on .

Tri-State Sports & News Service writer Drew Karpen profiles the Beaver Falls boys basketball team. Click here to read his story.

"Every team enters the season with different expectations and exits the season satisfied or dissatisfied with their results.

For Beaver Falls, anything short of a championship would be short of their expectations. The Tigers are the two-time defending WPIAL Class AA champion and defending PIAA champion.

But this season's edition was an entirely new team after losing 11 lettermen the past two years. But popular perception was that as long as the Tigers had all-state performer Elijah Cottrill back, they would be on their way.

Well ... it seemed that way until a season-ending knee injury to their star player seven games into the season."
