APB, Where Are They Now?
During the 2009 girls tennis season, Peters Township won its first WPIAL team title since 1996 and a second PIAA Class AAA championship. The first came in 2006. In addition, the doubles team of Julie Stroyne and Caroline Nixon won a PIAA championship. For Stroyne, it was the third PIAA gold of her scholastic career.
The 2006 team was led by standout Ali Riske. In one year with Peters Township, Riske won PIAA and WPIAL individual gold and held the team to its first state championship.
This week's All Points Bulletin is for Ali's sister Sarah Riske.
In the latter part of the 1990s, Riske was a dynamic player at Peters Township, where she became the first Washington County player to win WPIAL and PIAA individual championships.
Riske went on to Vanderbilt, where she also excelled. She was a four-time All-American at the SEC school.
Anyone knowing Riske's whereabouts is urged to contact The Varsity Letters.
