MACEY SELECTED TO ALL-STATE TEAM

(7/31/12) After a helping lead the Lady Tigers to the WPIAL quarterfinals, North Allegheny centerfielder Jordan Macey has been named to the 2012 All-State Softball Team.  Macey earned second-team laurels by the PA Softball Coachesí Association amongst Class AAAA players state wide.  Macey finished her senior year at North Allegheny with a .370 batting average, 12 RBIís, and a team high 19 runs and 27 hits.  Macey is planning on continuing her softball career this spring at Youngstown State.

THREE LADY TIGERS NAMED
SOFTBALL ALL-SECTION
 

(7/2/12) After another strong season on the diamond, North Allegheny softball players Jordan Macey, Christine Scherer, and Mary Funderlich were named to the All-Section Team.  Offensively, Macey fit the leadoff role for the Lady Tigers, atop several categories, inculding hits, runs, and stolen bases.  The Youngstown State recruit was also a force defensively, displaying fantastic range and a strong arm in center field. 

Scherer, a sophomore, led the team in RBI, while striking out just once all season.  Defensively, she helped anchor the infield from her shortstop position, finishing best on the team in defensive assists.  Funderlich was another heavy contributor to the softball team this year, hitting over .300.  She smashed a pair of home runs, and trailed only Scherer in RBI.  Both Scherer and Funderlich will return in 2013, looking to build on the Lady Tigers' WPIAL Quarterfinal appearance this past season.

SPARTANS END TIGERS' SEASON, 3-0,
IN QUARTERFINALS

 

WPIAL Class AAAA Softball Bracket

 

(5/17/12) The Hempfield Spartans, behind the solid pitching of Kari Null, defeated the North Allegheny Tigers at Woodland Hills on Thursday afternoon.  Sophomore pitcher Sami Beining, in a courageous effort, virtually matched Nullís performance, but it was the bat of Hempfield senior catcher Alyssa Bates that was the difference for the Spartans.  Bates drove in all three Hempfield runs, including a two-run third inning home run that was the big blow of the game.

North Allegheny staged a strong rally in the top of the seventh by loading the bases, but Null was able to pitch out of the no-out jam by keeping the ball in the infield to thwart the Tigers.  NA never let up throughout the competitive game, but just couldnít get the big hit to register on the scoreboard. Senior second baseman Stephanie Hnat led the way for the Tigers offensively with a two-for-three performance.

The loss ends the Tigersí season at 14-7, including a 10-2 Section 3-AAAA mark.  Congratulations to the team on an excellent season with many exciting moments along the way.

WPIAL SOFTBALL - 2012

The Lady Tigers will compete again in the WPIAL against 26 other teams.  The top three teams in each section will enter the WPIAL Tournament.  All playoff entries will be determined by section record only and will be determined by the best section won/lost record.  Teams that tie for first place will not have the tie broken and ALL of the tied teams will be declared section champions, will receive a section winner's plaque, and will be entered into the WPIAL tournament.  If three or more teams tie for first place, only those teams will qualify for the playoffs.

In the event of a multiple tie (two or more teams) for a playoff position, head-to-head competition will be the first determinant.  If head-to-head does not break the tie, the following tie-breaking system will be used.  If three or more teams are tied for second place and the tie breaking system identifies one team as the second place team, the remaining teams will be then tied for third place and the process begins all over with head-to-head competition being the first determinant for establishing the third place team.  If a tie cannot be broken all tied teams will enter the playoffs.

TIE-BREAKING SYSTEM

1.  Section won-lost record of the tied teams will be compiled.
2.  The team with the best numerical head-to-head section record among the tied teams will enter post-season play.
3.  If the the tie cannot clearly be broken, all tied teams will enter post-season play.

All WPIAL games must be played according to the National Federation Rule Book.  Be aware that beginning in the 2010-11 school year the pitching distance will move from 40 to 43 feet.  This is a mandated rule change.

The two WPIAL finalists in Quad A will represent the WPIAL in PIAA inter-district play.

POSTPONED GAMES MUST BE PLAYED IN ORDER OF POSTPONEMENT AND SCHEDULED ON THE FIRST COMMON AVAILABLE DATE.  MAKE UP WPIAL SECTION GAMES MUST HAVE PREFERENCE OVER EXHIBITION GAMES, JV AND JUNIOR HIGH GAMES.  ALL GAMES POSTPONED DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE SEASON MUST BE RESCHEDULED AND PLAYED PRIOR TO THE BEGINNING OF THE SECOND HALF IF POSSIBLE.

During all WPIAL competition, any game that is interrupted by bad weather prior to becoming a legal game will be declared a suspended game and resumed at that point and concluded on the next available playing date.

The Ten Run/Fifteen Run Rule will be in effect for all WPIAL softball games.  It reads:
If a team is ahead by ten runs or more at the end of five innings the game shall be terminated.  This also means if the home team is ahead by ten runs after four and one half innings, the game will be terminated.  Thereafter, if one team should go ahead by ten runs, the same rule must apply.  If the visiting team should go ahead by ten runs after the game has become official, the home team will be permitted to at in their half of the inning.  The same procedure applies at the end of three innings if a team is ahead by fifteen runs or more.

WPIAL Championship play is scheduled to begin the week of May 14, 2012.  The finals will be played Thursday, May 31, 2012 with a rain date of Friday, June 1, 2012.  The site will be determined at a later date.  The WPIAL reserves the right to make adjustments to play dates during the tournament, as it deems necessary.
