Players gathered at the high school this week.
The Upper St. Clair School Board and district administrators honored the high school's boys' soccer team on Monday night. The team won the PIAA championship in November. "We couldn't win the section, couldn't win WPIALs, so we thought we might as well win the state championship," joked head coach Uwe Schneider, a German teacher at Boyce Middle School.

The boys' soccer team won the WPIAL title in the midst of an 18-game winning streak during the 2011 season.
With the core of a near-state championship team returning this year, Upper St. Clair boys’ soccer coach Uwe Schneider has an understandable amount of optimism. But he takes nothing for granted. “We don’t look back. What’s done is done,” he said as his players prepared for the start of the 2012 season. “We have to focus one game at a time and play to the best of our abilities.” Those abilities translated to a 2011 WPIAL Class AAA championship and a trip to the PIAA title game, in which the Panthers lost a 1-0 heartbreaker to undefeated Conestoga, from Philadelphia’s Main Line. USC dominated in the western part of the state, though, racking up 18 straight victories on the way to a 20-2-2 overall record. And the good news is that just five …

The team reflects on their successful season.
The Upper St. Clair High School boys varsity soccer team is pleased with their season, despite falling to Conestoga in the PIAA Class AAA championship, 1-0, over the weekend.

This team is one of the top four or five teams in the history of Upper St. Clair." "I really enjoyed every moment I had with the team," said senior Jesse Poljak, one of the team's captains. "It was an amazing year. From the beginning we never thought we'd make it to the state championship, let alone win WPIAL." The only goal of the game was scored by Conestoga early in the second half. The coach …
