West Allegheny moved up to Class AAA this season and in its first dual meet of the season the Indians hardly looked out of place. Despite being one of the smallest Class AAA teams in the state, West Allegheny had no trouble with North Hills. West Allegheny won 106-79. The AAA schedule will not come as a surprise to West Allegheny. They had been competing against a Class AAA section schedule the last two years because the West Allegheny girls moved up to Class AAA two years before they did.
West Allegheny used its speed and depth in relays to take the meet in a battle of the Indians. The tone was set early in the 200-yard medley relay when West Allegheny finished 1-2 with Michael Kocher, Derek Currey, Jeremy Ellis and Gary McMurtrie winning the relay, finishing ahead of teammates Michael Cosnek, Mitchell Gumbert, Noah Wilson and Scott Zanella. Kocher and Gumbert went on to finish 1-2 in the 200 IM. Diver Jaden Beckett gave West Allegheny a lift off the diving board, taking first place with a score of 199.40 ahead of three North Hills divers.
West Allegheny was able to extend its lead over North Hills by taking the top three places in Event 12, the 100 butterfly. Currey won the event, finishing just ahead of Ellis and Wilson. Kocher made it a clean sweep of his individual events with another win, this time in the 100 backstroke, just ahead of Ellis and Cosnek. West Allegheny capped the meet with another relay win, this time in the 400 freestyle thanks to McMurtrie, Ellis, Currey and Kocher.
