Thursday, July 30, 2015 by TODD KRESS in HS Sports

It's hard not to take notice of Sabrina Mertz's and Sarah Segan's relationship.

The two spent nearly every high school sports season competing with one another, by each other's side. The 2013 track and field season was the exception, as Segan didn't take on the sport until 2014. But for all four years, it was soccer in the spring and basketball in the winter, with Mertz and Segan side by side. The two even grew up playing on similar youth teams.

All of the proposals passed the first reading during the May 20 meeting, which Whitehall Athletic Director and District 11 chairman Bob Hartman fully expected.

"The PIAA just wants to keep things moving along," Hartman said. "We'll meet again in July and go from there, but as of right now, there's nothing official."
