Earlier this decade, McGuffey softball was a regular in the WPIAL Class AAA and AA playoffs. At the turn of the decade, the Highlanders featured one of the WPIAL's more dominant pitchers.
Heidi Hewitt regularly ranked among district leaders in strikeouts during her four years with the Highlanders. She graduated in 2001 and the Varsity Letters issued an All Points Bulletin for one of the top pitchers in McGuffey history.
Our last APB, for former Big Macs pitcher Becca Petras was answered. According to several readers, Petras is a student at Duquesne University.
In 2000, Hewitt guided McGuffey to the WPIAL Class AA semifinals, returning to pitch in the playoffs after missing a couple weeks with an injury.
Anyone knowing of Hewitt's whereabouts is urged to contact the Varsity Letters.
