When it traveled south for its first four games, South Fayette's record followed suit. Back north again, that record is doing likewise.
South Fayette has fought back from an 0-4 start by winning three games in a row to improve to 3-4. The latest triumph was a 8-5 victory Monday against Trinity. It was South Fayette's Class AAA Section 3 opener. The Lions began the season by playing four games at the Ripken Experience in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
A playoff team a season ago, the Lions are being guided by first-year coach Ken Morgan. The senior class is led by Justin Foreman, Logan Sharp, Brian Coyne and Drake Bower. The junior class includes Tyler Reyes, Spencer Barber, Jasper Wolfe, Nick Yaworski, Brett Willner and Billy Newcomer. Among the top sophomores are Tristan Tinney and Cam Hoover.
The Lions are scheduled to play four more games this week: Today against West Allegheny, Wednesday at McGuffey, Thursday against Montour, and Friday against Chartiers Valley.
