Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the McGuffey girls basketball team.
"A new challenge awaits the McGuffey High School girls basketball team this season as it moves up to Class AAA.
Luckily for the Highlanders, they will be armed with one of the WPIAL's top players in senior Sammie Weiss.
Weiss is already the all-time leading scorer in school history with 1,651 points. A 5-foot-11 guard, Weiss averaged 23.4 points per game last season, tops in Class AA and No. 3 among the entire WPIAL. She was named first-team all-state by the Associated Press.
She topped 30 points on three occasions last season and scored 20 points or more 21 times."
Name: James Duchi
High School: McGuffey
Position: Running back
Background: Duchi rushed for 157 yards and three touchdowns to lead McGuffey to a 34-14 win against Waynesburg last Friday. Duchi has had an outstanding season for the Highlanders, rushing for 1,160 yards and scoring 22 touchdowns. Two weeks ago in a 35-0 win against Burgettstown, Duchi became the 61st player in WPIAL history to rush for 4,000 career yards. McGuffey (7-1, 6-1) can claim a share of the Interstate Conference should it win this week against visiting Washington (8-0, 7-0). The Highlanders have not won a conference title since 1994, also the year they won their last WPIAL championship.
