“I knew that we matched up pretty well against Beaver and Freeport…” said South Fayette head coach Joe Winans. He noted that Southmoreland was also a good team, but the scores with Beaver Area and Freeport were the closest. South Fayette won 80-70 over Freeport, and 79-71 over Beaver. It was a well fought championship for the Lions.
“Freeport was the scariest to me because where we were strong, their athletes are strong.” Winans felt that South Fayette’s distance runners would be rivaled very effectively by Freeport’s strong distance runners.
“Beaver -- I knew they were stronger in the sprints,” added Winans. Likewise, South Fayette worked to pick up at least some seconds or thirds in the sprints, and to get back some points from Beaver in the distance events.
