Girls Basketball: North Catholic to open new gym Thursday

Written by Joe Koch on .

Everyone has to get a new set of directions for girls basketball games played at Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School.

Gone is the limited parking spaces on the Troy Hill campus that closed this past June.

Gone are the quaint conditions where players would potentially find themselves flying off the stage at Graham Court and into the auditorium seating of the gymnasium. And gone are the unique sightlines of a player attempting to shoot a free throw at the open end of the floor with hundreds of fans attempting to distract that player.

What's new?

A new reality of plenty of on-campus parking, a sparkling new gymnasium that seats more than 1,000 fans and the opportunity to make plenty of new memories in a setting where the focus is on the future at Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High's campus in Cranberry.


Football: North Catholic ousted by rival

Joe Koch profiles the Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic football team.

"For the past two seasons, the Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School football team achieved unprecedented success with titles in the 2013 WPIAL and PIAA Class A football championship games.

But the road to repeat honors can be a difficult one, and the Trojans learned that harsh truth at the WPIAL Class A semifinals this past Friday with a 28-21 loss to Avonworth in a semifinal played at the Mars Athletic Complex.

The result left both teams with 11-1 records. Avonworth meets a familiar participant in the WPIAL Class A championship game — Clairton — at 11 a.m. Friday at Heniz Field."
