Softball: North Hills ends six-year playoff drought

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Every year the North Hills softball team gets together in the preseason and sets goals. It had been a half-decade since the Indians program last made the WPIAL postseason but that did not deter the players on the 2016 edition to set a common goal - playoffs.

"We do goal-setting with the players," coach Libby Gasior said. "We have goals and expectations. This group, their goal is to get to the playoffs. That is what they want and that is what they wanted from early on."

North Hills did just that. Defying the odds with a young team who has never clinched a playoff berth before, the Indians clinched third place in Section 3-AAAA with a 7-3 win at Moon on Tuesday. They also clinched a playoff berth with two section games to spare. North Hills is still scheduled to visit Brashear and host North Allegheny.
