As a sophomore, Andreyko was North Allegheny’s starting centerfielder and helped the team advance to the PIAA Class 6A semifinals in 2019. Andreyko’s speed not only allowed him to patrol centerfield with ease but also gave opponents fits when he stepped in the batter’s box. In 2019, Andreyko hit .306 and scored a team-leading 20 runs. A constant presence on the bases, he also walked 13 times for a .442 on base percentage. By season’s end, Andreyko was recognized by the Big 56 Conference as a first-team all-section selection in Class 6A. Unfortunately, Andreyko was unable to build on his strong sophomore campaign in the spring of 2020 as his junior season was wiped out due to COVID-19.
Andreyko will join a top-flight Case Western baseball program that went 24-15 in 2019 and reached the finals of the NCAA Division III Wooster Regional. It was the 10th straight season with a winning record for CWRU.
North Allegheny senior Joe Manesiotis will continue his baseball career at Division II Mercyhurt University in Erie next season. Manesiotis announced his verbal commitment on Saturday night via Twitter.
I am proud to announce that I am furthering my academic and athletic career at Mercyhurst University. I would like to thank my family, coaches, and friends that helped me along the way. Go Lakers! @Spikes_Baseball @BattlegroundBG @natigerbaseball @HurstBaseball pic.twitter.com/SXzc5T39YC

As a sophomore in 2019, Manesiotis played in eight games for a Tiger team that reached the PIAA semifinals and posted a .250 batting average with three runs and two RBI. The outfielder did not have an opportunity to play as a junior in the spring of 2020 due to COVID-19.
Manesiotis will join a Mercyhurst program that is a perennial challenger in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. In their last full season of action in 2019, the Lakers went 36-16 and reached the NCAA Division II College World Series.
