For the first time in 26 years, Monessen will take part in the WPIAL baseball playoffs.
The Greyhounds clinched a postseason berth out of Class A Section 2 with a 17-1 win at Geibel Catholic last Wednesday. Junior Justice Rawlins, who is being recruited by Division I schools for football, picked up the pitching win.
Monessen (6-9 overall, 5-4 in the section) plays its section finale today at Bishop Canevin.
Monessen has not participated in the playoffs since 1987.
