Director of a local dive meet says the Olympics introduce many young athletes to the sport of diving.
One day after the USA Diving National Preliminary Championships wrap up at the Settlers Cabin Dive Pool in Robinson, meet director Dorothy Krug will board a flight to London to watch her daughter compete as an Olympic diver.

Coach Win Palmer led last year’s boys basketball team to win the state championship. This year, he's leading a lesson in winning and losing both on and off the court.
Last year, the Sewickley Academy boys’ basketball team went all the way, placing first in the PIAA Class A State Championship. The team won the WPIAL championship back to back in 2009 and 2010. And for the sixth time in the past eight seasons, the Panthers clinched the section title. After so much success in recent years, where does the team go from here? Athletic Director and Head Coach Win Palmer knows the difficulty that lies ahead for his team this year. He lost five seniors and now has a very young team. He has to start all over again, outlining the basic principles of basketball in order to create a winning team.

If you’re living in Pittsburgh right now, the concept of wishing to see more black and gold, or feeling deprived of company swathed in Terrible Towels might seem strange. But for Sarah Crawshaw, a former Pittsburgher living in Charleston, SC, and other members of the Pittsburgh Diaspora, playoff season comes with more than a touch of nostalgia. Raised on the North Side in a family of die-hard fans famous for their resplendent tailgate parties, Crawshaw admits that sometimes she finds herself grading papers between plays when she watches games now. It's harder to get her Southern friends interested in the action. “My parents have had season tickets to Steelers games for 40 years. So tailgates are literally like homecoming for me,” Crawshaw …
