Zedreck headed to Clarion

A fourth local player is headed to a Division II basketball program now that South Fayette senior Pat Zedreck has accepted a scholarship offer from Clarion University, a member of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.

Zedreck was a four-year starter for the Lions, and, as a point guard, he directed a team to four consecutive PIAA playoff appearances and 17 postseason victories, including the 2010 PIAA Class AA championship - a game where Zedreck played better than anyone else on the floor.

This year, Zedreack earned Observer-Reporter Player of the Year honors. He averaged 15.2 points and a healthy 8.6 assists in addition to being one of the area's premier defensive players.

For the second consecutive year, Zedreck landed on the Pennsylvania sports writers all-state team - a third-team Class AAA selection.

Clarion finished 15-11 this past season, including a 5-9 mark in the PSAC-West.

Zedreck joins South Fayette teammate Mike Lamberti (West Liberty), Fort Cherry's Nate Bellhy (Seton Hill) and Trinity's Josh Valentic (Wheeling Jesuit) as Division II recruits from this year's senior class. With Monessen's Cam Johnson headed to Allegany Community College, a junior college known for producing Division I players, it's safe to say this has been one of the more heavily recruited groups over the past 30 years in this area.

Ringgold looked impressive in the 400 relay and as soon as Louis learns how to get out the blocks, I expect him to win the next two WPIAL 100 dash titles in Class AAA.

Geez, give the South Fayette hate a rest already. It's gotten old.

All you people that hate on SF are just sour that the better player won and Zedreck got player of the year over Valentic.

Your purpose on this blog is to report on and discuss local high school sports. If South Fayette happens to stand out then so be it. Keep up the good work. And no, I'm not from South Fayette!
