May 25—Wet weather, maybe more accurately, the threat of wet weather forced the WPIAL to shuffle the deck on the lineup for Monday.

All of the district changes have created Semifinals Tuesday around the WPIAL with a dozen baseball games to decide who will play for gold next week at Wild Things Park in Washington.

Here is the lineup, we hope, with all of the games you can either view or listen to on Trib HSSN.

Volley for finals

The WPIAL boys volleyball semifinals take place Tuesday with the winner having little time to celebrate.

The district moved the AAA and AA final up a day to Wednesday at Fox Chapel.

In Class AAA, top seed North Allegheny faces Hempfield while Seneca Valley goes up against Penn-Trafford in matches featuring the top two teams from Section 2 against Section 3. Both matches will take place at Fox Chapel.

In Class AA, top seed Seton-LaSalle squares off against Hopewell while North Catholic battles defending champion Ambridge in a pair of matches at North Allegheny.

You can hear the two AAA semifinals matches on Trib HSSN.
