Drew Karpen profiles the Beaver Falls boys basketball team.
"For years, Beaver Falls made it look easy competing in Class AA.
The Tigers were ready for a new challenge this season, something they accomplished by voluntarily moving up to Class AAA.
It wasn't a move the Tigers did just for the fun of it, however. According to Beaver Falls coach Doug Biega, they knew they were bringing back a team that could make a serious run at a WPIAL title, no matter the classification.
"They handled it how they expected to handle it," Biega said. "We made the move expecting to succeed. I am proud of how they responded to the change in class."
