Girls Tennis: Mt. Lebanon a title threat in Class 3A

Written by Keith Barnes on .

If there is one team out there that might put a scare into three-time defending WPIAL 3A champion North Allegheny, it's Mt. Lebanon.

And this could be the Blue Devils year.

After Mt. Lebanon defeated Peters Township, 4-1, in its final regular season match on Wednesday, the team closed out a perfect Section 4 slate and likely clinched the No. 2 seed in the team tournament, which is set to open next week.

Earlier this season, the Blue Devils lost a 3-2 match to North Allegheny.


Field Hockey: Mt. Lebanon hopes to move up

Written by Joe Koch on .

As the field hockey season swings into high gear, Mt. Lebanon High's team would be on the outside looking in if the playoffs were to begin right now.

That's because only the top two teams from each section advance to the WPIAL Class 3A playoffs. And, at the moment, those teams are Fox Chapel and Peters Township.

But the great thing about field hockey is that each team must meet the other twice during section play. So, all types of possibilities could emerge.

Five games into the season, the Blue Devils are treading water with an overall record of 3-3, and they are 2-2 against Section 2 rivals.
