Hockey: Drop down in classification agreeing with Shaler

Written by Ryan Riordan on .

Shaler had its ups and downs last season in Class AAA, just eking into the playoffs.

So far in Class AA this season, the Titans have been one of the most dominant teams.

Shaler is 2-1 and has outscored its opposition, 20-8. A 12-2 win over a talented Plum squad in its last game has a lot to do with the big goal differential.

Girls Volleyball: Shaler has plenty of talent

Written by Ken Wunderley on .

Ken Wunderley profiles the Shaler girls volleyball team. Read his story below.

Kris Ruppert has led the Shaler Area High School girls volleyball team to nine consecutive WPIAL Class AAA playoff berths.

During that stretch, the Titans have made seven appearances in the quarterfinals.

Last year, Shaler advanced to the semifinals before bowing to eventual runner-up Bethel Park. The Titans then dropped a 3-0 decision to Norwin in the third-place consolation match, thus failing to secure a PIAA berth. Seven starters are back from that squad, including four All-WPIAL players, which has earned Shaler the top spot in the WPIAL Class AAA rankings.

"This is the best team I've ever coached," Ruppert said. "If everybody stays healthy, we definitely have a shot at winning the title."
