Name: Thomas McCaffrey
School: North Allegheny
Grade: 12

Background: With all the top-flight talent in the North Allegheny swimming program, it could be easy to get lost in the shuffle. McCaffrey is doing his best to make a name for himself in his final year with the program. The senior would be the top swimmer on most Class AAA teams in the area. At North Allegheny, he is just another piece of the North Allegheny machine that is a shoe in to win yet another WPIAL Class AAA team title.

Swimming: Freshman chip in on North Allegheny’s big day at All-American

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

North Allegheny enjoyed overwhelming success at the All-American Invitational at Bucknell University. That was nothing new. What did amount to a slight change of pace was the age of the contributors for North Allegheny. On the boys and girls side, ninth-graders stepped up in big ways at a major state invitational. The North Allegheny boys won the six-team event with 732 points to finish ahead of Radnor (455), Landisville Hempfield (306), Springfield Township (276), Southern Lehigh (247) and Holy Redeemer (154). The North Allegheny girls won the event with 825.5 points to finish ahead of Landisville Hempfield (453), Southern Lehigh (297), Radnor (271), Springfield (207.5) and Holy Redeemer (114). North Allegheny freshmen contributed to a lot of those points.

Freshman Torie Buerger has done what she has done all season for the Tigers. She dominated the invitational, winning every single heat she swam, both relays and individual events. She was a part of a winning 200 medley relay and she anchored the winning 400 freestyle relay. On her own, she broke 1 minute in the 100 butterfly, winning the event with a 59.83. She was also the only swimmer to break 1 minute in the 100 backstroke, which she won with a 58.33.

Swimming: North Allegheny boys dominate All-American Invitational

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

The type of domination exhibited by North Allegheny at the All-American Invitational is often not even seen at a dual meet, let alone a six-team meet. The Tigers totally dominated the six-team All-American Invitational held annually in Wilkes-Barre. This year it was held Jan. 13-14 and it won't soon be a meet that North Allegheny or its competitors forget.

The Tigers totaled 825.50 points. They defeated the next closest competitor, District 3 Hempfield, by nearly 400 points. They won every single relay. They won all but one individual event. North Allegheny outscored Hempfield, 825.50-453, and the lone event it did not win was the 100 breaststroke.

Mason Gonzalez and Andrew Zhang made it two-for-two winning their individual events. Gonzalez beat out the field in both sprint freestyle events, the 50 and the 100-yard, while Zhang won the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke. Eben Krigger and Ricky Mihm gave the Tigers a 1-2 finish in the 200 freestyle and Mason's brother Maxwell captured first place in the 200 freestyle. Perhaps North Allegheny's depth and dominance was never more evident than in the 500 freestyle, the longest event of any high school swim meet. North Allegheny took first, second, third and fourth place in the event. Krigger won the 500 freestyle and he was followed by Mihm, Maxwell Gonzalez and John Ehling.
