FOUR TIGERS NAMED TO ALL-SECTION TEAM

(6/24/13) The WPIAL champion North Allegheny Tigers Baseball Team placed four players on the Class AAAA All-Section 1 Team. Tigersí shortstop Brandon Bergstrom, first baseman Matt Waugaman, third baseman James Meeker, and outfielder Jimmy Divosevic were all named to the All-Section squad. 

Bergstrom, who is planning on continuing his baseball career next season at Penn State Behrand, was also selected to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette All-Area Team. An excellent defensive shortstop, Bergstrom was also the table setter for the NA line-up with a .354 average in the lead-off spot and scored a team best 27 runs.

Waugaman was the Tigers top power threat, topping the team in doubles, triples, home runs, RBIís, and batting average. The left-handed hitting standout drove home 30 runs with 10 doubles, six triples and three homers, all with a batting average of .451.

Meeker, a defensive stalwart at the hot corner, was also one of the best contact hitters in the WPIAL, boasting a batting average of .407. On the mound, Meeker made six appearances with a 4-0 record and a 1.93 ERA. Against Norwin on April 6, Meeker tossed a perfect game in a five-inning, 12-0, victory over the Knights.

Divosevic, a Slippery Rock recruit, patrolled the outfield with great quickness and a strong arm, while also hitting at a .386 clip and driving home 21 runs. Because of his powerful right-arm, Divosevic was also a trustworthy member of the bullpen, securing two saves with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 1.40. Divosevic owned a most impressive strike out-to-walk ratio, punching out 25 batters while only walking four in 15 innings of work.

LOWER DAUPHIN TOPS NA ON HOME RUN IN TENTH, 1-0

(6/11/13) Jake Shellenberger hit a walk-off home run over the left field fence to leading off the tenth inning, catapulting Lower Dauphin into the state title game with a 1-0 win over North Allegheny.  Both starting pitchers, Blair Lewis for Lower Dauphin and Jason Monper for North Allegheny, were terrific on the day, matching each other with scoreless frames through nine innings. 

Each hurler danced their way out of trouble in the late innings, with Monper getting out of  bases loaded jams in the seventh, eighth, and ninth, all with the winning run on third base for Lower Dauphin.  In the seventh, the Falcons loaded the bases with one out, but Monper induced a 1-2-3 double play from Luke Lingle to extend the game to extras.  The next inning, the Tigers' infield was drawn in with the bases loaded and one out.  Kaylor Kulina, hitting second for the Falcons, smacked a sharp grounder to second.  JT Zeitler threw home to catcher Justin Dattilo, who then pivoted and threw a strike to James Meeker at third for an unconventional 4-2-5 double play.  Marshall Kiessling flew out to Sean Fitzgerald in right for the third out of the inning. 

In the ninth, North Allegheny nearly took the lead after Matt Waugaman drilled a two-out, two-strike pitch off the right center field fence.  After the ball rolled away from centerfielder Jeff Light, Waugaman tried to stretch his triple into an inside-the-park home run, but he could not beat the relay throw from the outfield.

Monper once again tiptoed out of danger in the bottom of the ninth, leaving the bases loaded again, recording back-to-back strikeouts to end the frame.  For his efforts on the mound, he was awarded the Wright Automotive Player of the Game.

North Allegheny concludes its season with a 22-5 record.  The Tigers earned their first WPIAL championship and first appearance in the state semifinals since 2009.

WPIAL BASEBALL - 2013

The Tigers will compete again in the WPIAL in Class AAAA along with 30 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 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 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-BREAKER SYSTEM

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