runner-up Peters Township by a mere 635 points. Mount Lebanon finished
third, Canon-McMillan fourth and Hempfield fifth. The rest of the top
ten was Upper St. Clair, Bethel Park, Latrobe, Gateway and Fox Chapel.
Where do you start
with the sports year that North Allegheny enjoyed? In the fall, they
captured WPIAL gold in boys cross country and district and state gold in
football. Then in the winter season, more gold came in both WPIAL boys
and girls swimming along with a PIHL and Pa Cup state championship in
ice hockey. The golden season for the Tigers concluded in the spring
with a WPIAL and PIAA state crown in boys volleyball, District 7
championships in baseball and boys track & field and district runner-up
silver in softball and boys tennis.
In all, the Year of

to North Allegheny High School and helped them cruise to a tenth MSA
Sports Cup in ten years, thus concluding a decade of excellence at NAHS.
