Playing in a league with perennial powers Mt. Lebanon and Upper St. Clair, as well as a strong Oakland Catholic team, makes it difficult for the rest of Section 4-AAA.

So Chartiers Valley’s coach is looking for her team to compete well against the rest of the competition in the league.

Our team goals are to beat Baldwin, Montour, West Allegheny, and possibly Allderice,” said Chartiers Valley coach Diane Daeschner. “I feel our team is stronger this year than in years past and we should be able to have multiple wins in our section.”
