The New Kensington-Arnold SD Valley High School girls softball team won the state of Pennsylvania Championship AAA game this year. The victory was unique because last year, in the quarter finals an umpire called a violation when the catcher stepped out of the catcher’s box during an intentional walk. The violation resulted in advancing a runner on third base from the other team and the district losing the championship game by one run. As a result of inviting the umpire to the Valley High School girls softball banquet, the school district won a national award for good sportsmanship.
