Following a season which saw them lose all 15 games and go 0-6 against Division 1, Section 1 rivals, the Trinity High Hillers have regrouped and moved down to Division 2, Section 3, where they will meet Canon-McMillan, Baldwin, Moon, Chartiers Valley and Seton-LaSalle in section games.
The section the Hillers left should be a solid one with Upper St. Clair and Bethel Park expected to make plenty of noise in challenging Mt. Lebanon and Peters Township for section supremacy.
The Panthers had a solid season a year ago with a 15-3 record. They advanced to the WPIAL semifinals where they were ousted by eventual WPIAL Division 1 champion Shady Side Academy, 9-6.
The Panthers have earned non-section victories over Chartiers Valley (14-10), Franklin Regional(7-6) and Wheeling, W.Va., Central Catholic (17-4). Upper St. Clair is in Cleveland this weekend. They played on Cleveland St. Ignatius on Friday and visit Lakewood, Ohio, St. Edward today. They visit non-section rivals Pine-Richland and Shady Side Academy on Tuesday and Thursday, respectively.
