STATE COLLEGE — Fort LeBoeuf softball coach Brian Kirsch must have liked what he saw from the Bison during Thursday’s practice for their appearance in the PIAA Class AAA championship game.
LeBoeuf (20-4) practiced at State College High School shortly after the team arrived in Happy Valley. The District 10 champions are there to take on District 2 Valley View (19-0) in Friday’s 5:30 p.m. final at Penn State University’s Nittany Lions Softball Park.
The Bison also were scheduled to work out at State College High School on Friday at 10 a.m. However, LeBoeuf athletic director Steve Pizzo reported Thursday’s practice went so well that Kirsch decided to scrap Friday’s session.
Pizzo said LeBoeuf now plans to arrive at Penn State’s diamond around 2 p.m. and catch some of the action from earlier PIAA action. LeBoeuf is currently scheduled to take batting practice for its game at 4:45.
Here’s where the Bison will try to become the third school from District 10 to call itself a state softball champion:
The Erie Times-News will provide blog updates throughout late Friday morning and early afternoon, as well a live blog, sponsored by Humes of Waterford, of the PIAA Class AAA final starting at 5 p.m.
