Brashear's McNeill qualifies for PIAA boys' golf tournament in 2012
Saturday, 20 October 2012 3:15 pm
. When it comes to high school golf in Western Pennsylvania, not much attention has been paid to competitors from the Pittsburgh City League.
However, that perception took a bit of a hit this week when one of the two golfers to advance from the two-day City League championship, Brashear High's Dan McNeill, placed 10th among the top 22 golfers across Western Pennsylvania to qualify for the two-day PIAA Class AAA Championship that begins on Monday at Heritage Hills Golf Course in York.
McNeill, a senior, recorded a 6-over-par round of 78, seven strokes behind the winning effort posted by North Allegheny's Kevin O'Brien.
Senior teammate Troy Dinkel placed 18th with an 11-over-par round of 83.
- PIAA Wrestling: City League's drought ends! 
- Friday, March 11, 2011 By Ken Wunderley, Tri-State Sports & News Service
HERSHEY, Pa. -- Godwin Nyama knew he wasn't expected to win. That gave the Brashear junior more incentive to prove everybody wrong.
"I'm an underdog," said Nyama, who became the first City League wrestler to win a PIAA match. "They are expecting me to lose. I wanted to come in here and shock everybody."
And that's just what he did in the opening round of the Class AAA tournament at the Giant Center. Nyama recorded four takedowns en route to an 8-4 win against Upper Perkiomen's Dylan Steffenino in the 112-pound weight class.
"I just kept moving on my feet," Nyama said. "I kept working him and pressuring him so I could get to my attacks and take him down."
Nyama is the third City League wrestler to participate in the PIAA championships. The other two were Oliver's Mike Price (2000) and Carrick's Matt Waterman ('02).
"It feels great because I've worked so hard for this," Nyama said.
"I worked all year to be prepared for these two weeks -- regionals and states."
