Baseball: West Feature Athlete - Beaver's Luke Scheidemantel

Written by staff reports on .

Name: Luke Scheidemantel
School: Beaver Area
Grade: 12
Sport: Baseball
Position: Pitcher/Third baseman

Background: As a sophomore, Luke Scheidemantel was a regular contributor in the infield on Beaver's WPIAL Class AA championship and PIAA runner-up. Now a senior, Scheidemantel has become the leader of the team, including taking his turn on the mound as the Bobcats returned absolutely no pitching from last season and the bad weather early made it tough to get experience early. Entering the season with so little experience and now in Class AAA, Beaver has gotten off to a slow start but the experience could put them into position to make a second half push.


Boys Tennis: Beaver duo rolls to section title

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Jonathan Tetrick and Devin Dikec are both hoping they have better success in their second go-round in a WPIAL tournament this year.


Tetrick and Dikec both qualified for the WPIAL Class AA singles tournament and neither made it out of the first round as Tetrick was ousted, 10-2, in a pro-set format match by fifth-seeded Noah Cenkner of Mount Pleasant, while Dikec was rolled out, 10-1, by eventual runner-up Sam Sauter of Sewickley Academy.


When the two teamed up this week, though, they came away with a 6-2, 6-2, win over Tyler Squicquero and Blake Weber of Riverside to capture the Section 2-AA doubles title. They will get their opportunity to play in another WPIAL Class AA tournament Monday at Shady Side Academy.
