"A senior, Pat Mittereder won't be on the North Allegheny baseball team next season. That's a shame, because he has great expectations for the that edition of the Tigers.
"I believe next year I think they should be able to win the WPIAL and go pretty far in states," Mittereder said. "They have everything -- hitting, fielding, pitching. I think they'll be able to do some great things next year."
The 2012 Tigers weren't too shabby themselves. North Allegheny completed a WPIAL semifinalist season when it lost, 3-2, to Mt. Lebanon last week.
The Tigers fell one step short of the WPIAL title game, but with a young roster that perhaps will peak sometime into the future, that represented an extreme success."
