Serra Catholic is on the outside looking in at the Section 2-A playoff race. The Eagles are staring up at co-section leaders, Jefferson-Morgan (11-2, 9-2) and Carmichaels (11-3, 9-2) along with third-place Frazier (8-4, 8-3). Sitting at 7-4 overall and 6-4 in section play, the Eagles have four games to make up space between themselves and the top three teams in the section all the while trying to hold off West Greene (6-9, 5-6) and Monessen (6-8, 4-7).
Serra still has four section games remaining, road games at California and Frazier and home games against West Green and Frazier. For the Eagles to remain alive they are going to need more offensive performances like they got in an upset of No. 4 Carmichaels last week. In that game junior infielder Alexandra Taylor, senior outfielder Morgan Willaman and senior pitcher Witney Larko had two hits apiece to fuel the 4-3 upset.
