The McKeesport softball team picked a good year to head down south. While most WPIAL teams are cooped up in gyms waiting for the cold weather and snow to subside, the Tigers headed to Myrtle Beach to take part in the Ripken Experience.
Not only did McKeesport get outdoors and enjoy the warmth, they enjoyed some success as well. The Tigers won both of their games played Tuesday, March 26. They defeated St. John Villa Academy out of New York, 3-2 and about an hour later they blasted T.C. Williams out of Virginia 17-0.
McKeesport was scheduled to begin Class AAAA Section 2 action on Tuesday, April 2 at Oakland Catholic.
