Drew Karpen profiles the West Allegheny baseball team.
"It wasn't that long ago that West Allegheny was the cream of the crop in Class AAA baseball.
The Indians won back-to-back WPIAL titles in 2007 and '08 under coach Bryan Cornell.
Cornell has returned for his 11th year as head coach at West Allegheny and is hungry to repeat last year's success.
The Indians were one step away from returning to the WPIAL title game, but lost, 4-0, to section rival Hopewell in the semifinals. With the loss, the Indians still had a chance to make the PIAA playoffs but fell, 1-0, in the third-place consolation game to Keystone Oaks."
