Fox Chapel aims for section sweep after rain delay: WPIAL sports highlights for March 27, 2024

WPIAL baseball and softball teams are back in action on Wednesday after a rainy Tuesday forced a washout of games. Fox Chapel baseball, with a record of 1-0 in section play, is looking to continue their winning ways when they visit Penn-Trafford on Wednesday. The team needed extra innings to secure a win in their last game, with Mitchell Epstein hitting a walk-off sac fly to score Joe Geller for a 4-3 victory over the Warriors.

In Section 1-5A, Franklin Regional is looking to build on their recent success as they face Penn Hills. The Panthers are coming off a dominant 15-1 win and hope to secure another victory on Wednesday. Meanwhile, in Section 2-2A, Laurel managed a comeback win over South Side with a two-run walk-off single in the seventh inning. The teams will face off again on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, two Indian softball teams, North Hills and Penn Hills, will meet on Wednesday in their Section 1-5A opener. Both teams have had strong starts to the season, with North Hills sitting at 3-1 and Penn Hills winning their first two nonsection games decisively. After a couple more section contests, the teams will meet again in two weeks at North Hills.
