The Bethel Park baseball and softball teams represented their school and community on the local, regional and state-wide level this season. All residents have a reason to be proud of the Blackhawks.

The Bethel Park softball team captured the WPIAL 6A title

The Bethel Park softball team captured the WPIAL 6A title and the Blackhawks baseball team won the PIAA 5A state championship in 2021.

The softball team went 18-0 in the regular season and WPIAL playoffs and completed the championship round by beating Canon McMillan. Sandra Soltes swung the momentum in the Blackhawks’ favor right away by belting a grand slam en route to the 7-2 victory. Soltes, a junior, committed to play softball collegiately at Pitt.

The team’s seniors were Delaney Nagy, Gianna Sciullo, Emily Momchilovich, Reagen Milliken, Riley McCann, Lauren Caye, Lexi Seese and Sami Stephenson.

The Bethel Park baseball team turned a disappointment into true euphoria in the past few weeks. The Blackhawks lost a tough one to Franklin Regional, 2-1, in the WPIAL championship game. They still qualified for the PIAA playoffs and made the most of the opportunity.

Bethel Park rattled off four-straight victories including a 4-2 victory over powerhouse Red Land in the state championship game played at Penn State’s Medlar Field. It was the program’s second state title, last winning one 33 years ago. Eric Chalus paced the team on the mound striking out six Red Land batters. The Blackhawks completed the year with a 22-4 record, including a 10-record in league play.

Chalus, along with Jimmy Gasper, Sawyer D’Andrea, Dan Delbene, Josh Peters, Shane Hamel, Zack Sackett, Larry Kusan and Etan Nerone were the team’s seniors.

The Blackhawks received a police escort back to the South Hills from the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Department. The Bethel Park Volunteer Fire Department hosted a celebration for the team upon their arrival back in town on June 18.
