Start date

The WPIAL fall sports season officially begins Monday when boys and girls golf teams tee off.

Locally, golf is building itself quite a tradition. The Burgettstown boys won four straight WPIAL titles, while former high school standouts John Popeck (Chartiers-Houston) and Robert Rohanna (Waynesburg) are excelling on the amateur circuit. Trinity grad Steve Wheatcroft spent the 2007 season on the PGA Tour.

Meanwhile, Waynesburg High senior Rachel Rohanna is the WPIAL's leading girls golfer and a two-time PIAA and WPIAl gold medalist.

The Varsity Letters wished good luck to all the teams and student-athletes.
