Baseball: As usual, Serra Catholic one of the best in Class A

Written by Brad Everett on .

Death. Taxes. Serra Catholic having a good baseball team.

Those are pretty much the three guarantees in life.

Thus, it likely comes as little surprise to anyone that Serra is again one of the best teams in WPIAL Class A. The Eagles are 12-1 overall and and 5-1 in Section 2. Their only loss came to section leader and defending WPIAL champion Greensburg Central Catholic, 8-4, on April 16. The Eagles and Centurions will meet once more this season.

Serra has gotten offensive with opposing pitching. The Eagles are averaging 11.3 runs per game and have scored at least 10 runs nine times. Both of their games last week resulted in lopsided victories. The Eagles defeated Geibel Catholic, 13-2, and Ringgold, 15-3. They routed Monessen, 19-0, Monday.
