Soccer Team Makes Fourth Playoff Appearance
For the fourth consecutive year, the varsity boys soccer team made it to the WPIAL Section A Playoffs. With a record of 9-7-1, the Bears faced section 5 winner Bentworth, and fell 1-2 in a hard fought battle.
Despite the first round loss, the Bears have much to celebrate. Five players were recognized by the WPIAL: All-Section Player of the Year, senior Jono Coles; All-Section Honorable Mention, senior Tyler Coleman; All-Section Finest 15: seniors Max Rogow, Tamir Frank, Andre Curtis, and Jono Coles.
Tamir Frank was also named Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Athlete of the Week.
Head coach Adam Brownold, who celebrated his 13th season coaching the Bears, reflects on the team’s legacy: “The 11 seniors have raised the bar for future teams. In four years, the seniors were a part of a team that scored a total 246 goals, allowing only 72. They are the first graduating class to appear in the WPIAL playoffs for four straight seasons. As freshmen they won WT’s first WPIAL soccer playoff game. Their junior season, the team went undefeated during the regular season, winning Section A. They went on to win the WPIAL Championship and two state playoff games before losing in the state semi-final. They leave the Bears soccer family with not only an impressive four year record of 64-19-2, but also with a commitment to hard work and dedication.”
