Baseball: South Fayette hopes to continue upward trend

Written by Brad Everett on .

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.

Ken Wunderley profiles South Fayette graduate Nick Carr, who recently won a Division III wrestling national championship at Washington & Jefferson. Read his story below.

There's no truth to the rumor that Nick Carr has taken up residence in Hershey.

Carr, a junior at Washington & Jefferson College, spent two of the past three weekends at Giant Center in Hershey.

His first trip to Chocolate Town was to watch his brother Mike compete for South Fayette High School at the PIAA wrestling championships.

One week later, Carr returned to Hershey to compete in the NCAA Division III championships for the Presidents.

Swimming: South Fayette diver headed to states

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

South Fayette sophomore diver Trevor Mahoney continued the long line of success South Fayette divers have enjoyed at WPIAL championships over the past few years. Stephen Zombek won the WPIAL Class AA title last season. Evan Zombek took third and Mahoney was fifth. All three qualified for states. The Zombek brothers graduated but Mahoney still carried the flag for the Lions at WPIALs this year.

Being on the same team with the Zombek brothers and going to states with them was an invaluable experience for Mahoney.

"It helped me a lot," Mahoney said. "They were a great inspiration to me, especially Stephen because he won at WPIALs. Being at states was crazy because I had two seniors and it was just me, a freshman. We had a lot of fun. We were playing basketball between practices."

Mahoney was the only freshman in the PIAA Class AA diving championship last season. The top 20 divers reach the semifinals and the top 16 reach the finals. Mahoney missed the cut for the semifinals. This year he is aiming for it.
