Nine Tigers Earn Big 56 All-Section Accolades

Posted on:

The Big 56 Conference announced its all-section teams on Friday afternoon and nine Tigers earned all-section accolades, including six first-team members.

Senior forward Sarah Schupansky, sophomore forward Lucia Wells, junior midfielder Halle Marsalis, sophomore midfielder Sophia Palermo, senior defenseman Tulasi Syamala and senior goalie Julianna Werner were all named first-team All-Section 1 in Class AAAA. It’s the third straight year that Schupansky was named all-section and second straight year she earned first-team laurels. For Wells and Syamala, it’s the second consecutive season they garnered all-section accolades after each receiving second-team honors in 2019.

North Allegheny’s second-team all-section honorees included junior defensemen Alexa Spano and Kena Shannon, and sophomore midfielder Anna Bundy.

All nine players made significant contributions toward North Allegheny’s back-to-back WPIAL title run and PIAA championship game appearance this fall. The Tigers finished the 2020 season with an overall record of 13-3.
