Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the South Fayette softball team.
"They have one of the smallest teams -- physically speaking -- in WPIAL Class AAA and one of the youngest teams in the WPIAL.
But the 19-person South Fayette softball team with one senior, one junior, seven sophomores and 10 freshmen do not act their age and do not let size get in their way of chasing a goal -- the first section title in program history.
Through 10 games South Fayette was sitting in second place in Section 2-AAA. Overall the Lions are 9-1 following a 13-7 victory against Montour Tuesday and are 7-1 in section play, a half-game behind first-place Trinity (12-1, 8-1). They'll play the Hillers next Thursday.
"We are leading the section and it has been a long time at South Fayette since that has happened," second-year coach Vic Iagnemma said. "The girls are very focused and excited about how well we are doing. There is still a lot of season left.""
