In a baffling move, Peters Township has opened all fall sports varsity coaching positions.
Every Peters Township fall sports program qualified for the WPIAL playoffs, from cross country to girls volleyball. Several teams added to the school's already overflowing trophy case. The extraordinary success of Peters Township's sports teams has made it one of the state's top athletic programs.
Girls soccer won WPIAL and PIAA titles. Head coach Pat Vereb transformed the team from one that had sparkling regular season records but little postseason success into an annual title contender.
Boys soccer won its seventh WPIAL title. Head coach Bob Dyer, a former standout player at Peters Township, has had an incredibly successful second stint as head coach. The Indians have won one PIAA title, played in two state championships, won two WPIAL titles and played for three more. In only one year since Dyer returned has PT not played for a WPIAL championship.
Boys golf won the WPIAL for the third time and finished second in the state. Head coach David Kuhn has turned the team from an afterthought to one that sends golfers to Division I teams and is always considered among the best in Western Pennsylvania.
In recent years, girls tennis won two state championships, the last coming in 2009 and a string of WPIAL and PIAA medals under head coach Brandt Bowman. He's also helped several players land at Division I programs and even had the distinction of coaching a rising pro player (Alison Riske) for one year.
