The Northern Athletic Directors Association has announced the realignment of the WPIAL middle school girls’ basketball and volleyball seasons to directly coincide with their counterparts at the high school varsity level.

His overall goal is to help athletes safely reach their goals for optimal performance, while educating them about lifelong healthy habits.
