Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the 2014 Post-Gazette South Female Athlete of the Year, McGuffey's Sammie Weiss.
"When it comes to garnering the athletic attention of the greater Pittsburgh area, McGuffey athletic programs often face an uphill climb.
A mid-sized school district in rural Washington County, McGuffey is about 35 miles south of Pittsburgh. The school has rarely been known as an athletic hotbed.
Over the past three years, however, some athletic programs at the high school, specifically the girls basketball and softball teams, have been garnering some attention.
The softball team has reached the WPIAL playoffs three consecutive seasons, winning at least 14 games each year and reaching the district quarterfinals twice."
