"After winning the biggest game of its season two weeks ago, the Penn Hills baseball team didn't do much celebrating.

Instead, both coaches and players kept their thoughts focused on Indians head coach Ed Carr and his family.

A 1997 graduate of Penn Hills, Carr is in his fourth season guiding his alma mater and missed the team's 4-1 Section 4-AAAA upset against No. 4-ranked Pine-Richland on April 8. Earlier that day, Carr received word that his father, Michael Carr, had been in a car accident and was rushed to the hospital.

His father later died overnight."

There are, of course, exceptions to this way of thinking.

A prime example is Penn Hills senior Khallid Young, who has become one of the WPIAL's top 400-meter runners this spring.

"I totally didn't expect it," Young said. "It just came out of nowhere.""
