Latrobe had an improbable run to a share of the Class 6A Section 3 title. The Wildcats had to run the table in the second half of the season and had to cap it off with wins against both Fox Chapel and Penn Hills, the two teams that defeated them earlier in the season.
Not only was Latrobe (19-3) able to pull of the improbable, it gave a look at what might be the improbable – the school winning its first WPIAL title since 1985.
On Monday, the Wildcats closed out their regular season with an impressive 86-76 home victory over Kennedy Catholic. Though the Hermitage school out of District 10 might be only in Class 1A, it is the defending state champion and defeated Allderdice last year when the Dragons were among the top teams in the state's highest classification.
It also might be enough to get Latrobe the No. 2 seed in the WPIAL playoffs behind Pine-Richland, especially after Central Catholic hammered Fox Chapel (19-3), 81-59, on Monday night.
