Washington High School boys track and field will compete for a WPIAL Class AA team championship Thursday afternoon at West Mifflin High School. The Prexies are certainly no strangers to the team championship.
Wash High last made the final in 2006, and last won the team title in 2000. There were a couple other championship appearances in between as Washington has remained one of the better track teams in the WPIAL.
South Fayette, one of Wash High's bigger basketball rivals and an emerging football nemesis, also qualified for the team championship.
It's a new twist to one of this area's best sports rivalries for sure.
It also begs the question, what are the area's premier rivalries? When it comes to tradition, does Charleroi-Monessen top the list? Does it get more intense than Trinity vs. Canon-McMillan?
For my money, the area's premier rivalry between schools is Canon-McMillan and Trinity.
