Despite winning the WPIAL Class AAA title last season, Montour was not on many people’s short lists to make a run at another Class AAA title. The Spartans were decimated by graduation including the loss of pitcher Kaitlyn Kutchman who is now pitching at Seton Hill University. But Montour managed to rebuild in a hurry, win 9 of 12 section games and qualify for the postseason.
Montour did not win its section and it will not be a top four seed but the battle-tested Spartans could be one of the toughest outs in the WPIAL Class AAA field. Overall Montour is 12-5. It is led by senior Stacey Capp, one of the top players in the WPIAL. Capp is batting .589 with 32 runs score, 26 RBIs, nine doubles and four home runs. Junior Malory Gerst is batting .429 with 18 runs scored, 16 RBIs and three home runs. Both are returning starters as is senior Alyssa McMurtrie who is batting .352 with a team seven home runs.
