The following North Hills students participated in the WPIAL Summit on Sportsmanship at the Heinz History Center and Sports Museum on November 14th: Anthony McCall, Abigail McElhaney, Sarah Grace Kuchma, Ryan Filipcic, and Sydney Kissner. While six other student-athletes also helped with the event: Luke Hulbert, Bryanna Lawry, Nina Topich, Shay Hagerman, Sam Hillegas, and Aaron Pepmeyer.
Close to 600 area student-athletes and athletic directors attended the event. Participants heard numerous keynote speakers from WPIAL Assistant Executive Director, Amy Scheuneman, Bernie Colbert, the Lead Educator for Coaching Boys into Men; Karen Hall, a former WPIAL athlete and current ESPN3 color analyst for women’s college basketball, as well as a panel of local sportswriters. The overarching message from each speaker was clear and it encouraged the students to enact positive change within their school districts surrounding the various topics of sportsmanship in today’s society.
