Two Tigers Named All-Section, All-WPIAL
Two North Allegheny defensive standouts have received both All-Section and All-WPIAL recognition this week. Juniors Greg Ferringer and Jack Kairys were named to the All-Section and All-WPIAL team as defensemen.
Ferringer is the Tigers team leader in forced errors with 95 and is amongst the top players in ground balls with 80. Kairys has tallied 44 forced errors and is second on the team in ground balls with 92. Chipping in on offense, both players have scored two goals apiece.
Ferringer and Kairys are key contributors to a North Allegheny team that won its first WPIAL championship last Friday night with a 9-7 triumph over Mt. Lebanon at Highmark Stadium. The Tigers are setting their sights on a state title and begin their trek in the PIAA playoffs this afternoon with a contest against Manheim Township, the runners-up from District 3.
