Spring Sports Wrap Up

The three spring sports teams here at the high school have had successful springs. Their seasons are concluding this week. The track team’s regular season ended a couple weeks ago, but some of the team members were still participating in invitationals. Uniontown hosted the county meet and also sent members to participate in the Baldwin Invitational. This past week several members attended WPIAL qualifiers, where some qualified for WPIAL finals. It is possible to qualify for the state track meet by doing well at the WPIAL final meet.

The baseball team finished their last week of the season with a 13-0 win over Thomas Jefferson, and a 1-0 loss to undefeated section champion Laurel Highlands. Uniontown was in the playoff race for most of the season. Their playoff hopes took a hit with a loss to South Park two weeks ago. The following day they lost again to Ringgold. This ended the hopes of Uniontown returning to the playoffs for the first time in two years. The team finished with a record of 7-7 in the section and 10-10 overall. They had seven more wins this season than last season

The Girls’ Softball team’s season also came to an end this week. They ended with rival Laurel Highlands on the road. Both teams were already out of the playoff race, but the game was still very exciting. In the end, it took 11 innings to decide a winner. Laurel Highlands defeated the Raiders by a score of 7-6. The Raiders’ season didn’t end the way they had hoped finishing with a record of 1-15 and 0-12 in the section, but the record could have been  much better if some of the one-run games went their way. The highlight of their season was an upset win over one of the best teams in single A, Frazier.
