Posted on:

Two North Allegheny cross country standouts signed their letters of intent on Wednesday to continue their careers at the next level. Senior Ally Christy has tabbed Duquesne University and senior Zach Kinne signed on to compete at Duke University.

Both athletes were contributors to North Allegheny’s PIAA and WPIAL championships in cross country this fall. North Allegheny is the first school to win both the boys and girls PIAA title in the same season. Christy finished 13th at the WPIAL championship.

Kinne, a transfer from Illinois Prep where he racked up an impressive resume, rounded out his high school career as a senior at North Allegheny where he took second place at the PIAA championship with a time 16:07. Among a long list of accolades, Kinne also took fifth place at the Nike Cross Country Nationals.

Christy will major in Business at Duquesne University. Kinne will major in Engineering at Duke University. Both are pictured above with North Allegheny head coach John Neff.
