Mt. Lebanon High's boys lacrosse team has enjoyed a considerable amount of success since WPIAL began sponsoring District 7 championships in 2009.
The Blue Devils won WPIAL titles in 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015. This year, they fell to North Allegheny in the WPIAL championship game, 9-7, but they advanced to the PIAA playoffs. That's where they knocked off District 6 champion State College, 8-5, in the first round. But in the quarterfinals, the Blue Devils were the victims of a strong third quarter by Manheim Township, and they fell to the District 3 runner-up Blue Streaks, 17-5. Manheim Township's bid for glory, though, was short-lived as the Blue Streaks fell to PIAA finalist, LaSalle College High School, 10-2 in the semifinals.
"It was a difficult game, and we had a lot of trouble clearing the ball," said Mt. Lebanon coach Mike Ermer of the loss to Manheim Township. That was evident in the third quarter where Manheim Township outscored the Blue Devils, 8-1, to put the game out of reach.
