Greater Pittsburgh Got Game
Who's got game? Each month, ESPN RISE finds out. Here are the athletes we recognized in November:
CENTRAL CATHOLIC -- FOOTBALL
Oczypok might be the best kicker in the WPIAL. So far, he's proven he's among the most clutch. In last year's Class AAA title game, the thenjunior kicked the game-winning extra point to win the regional title. This year, after opponent Upper St. Clair inexplicably punted on third down, Central Catholic drove to set up a 48- yard field goal try. Oczypok was up to the task, drilling the attempt to help his team win, 10-9, on Sept. 19.
CALIFORNIA -- GIRLS' TENNIS
LEAH ANNE WIRFEL
FOREST HILLS -- GIRLS' CROSS COUNTRY
In a meet that included some of the best runners in Pennsylvania, Wirfel emerged as one of the runners to watch this postseason. The sophomore harrier claimed top honors at the Carlisle Reebok Meet of Champions on Sept. 27, besting the second-place finisher by 36 seconds to finish atop the 335-girl field. The win in the champions race makes Wirfel a contender every time she toes the line.
