Reigning WPIAL Champions Kick Off 2017 In Style
The two-time reigning WPIAL champion North Allegheny Lady Tigers began their trek toward a three-peat on Thursday morning with a season-opening win over the Mars Planets in non-section play, 152-202.
Fine efforts were turned in by the Lady Tigers, including Caroline Wrigley who led the scorecard with a 34. Esha Vaidya tallied a 38, Christina Lewis posted a 39 and Bella Walters added a 41 on the par-35 front nine at Pittsburgh North, the new home course for the Tigers. The Pittsburgh North course is a challenging risk-reward course that should bring out the strengths in the veteran-led North Allegheny squad.
Pacing the Mars team on Thursday was Natalie Walsh with a 41 and Victoria Witkouski with a 43.
The next match for North Allegheny is on Monday against the Pine-Richland Rams. The start time has been moved to 8:30 a.m. due to the solar eclipse.
