Mt. Lebanon's 2 Teams Magnets For Crowds At Palumbo

Some individual star power and some powerful teams can attract a crowd.

The WPIAL basketball championship games Friday and Saturday nights attracted capacity crowds at Duquesne University's Palumbo Center. They were two of the largest crowds the WPIAL has had at Palumbo over the years.

"We were very encouraged by the attendance," said WPIAL executive director Tim O'Malley. "The bottom line is, we probably couldn't fit any more people in there Friday or Saturday night."

NOTE: When the Mt. Lebanon boys' and girls' teams won WPIAL titles Saturday, it marked the 12th time that a school swept the championships in the same school year. The other 11 are: Beaver Falls (1985), Penn Hills (1987), Aliquippa (1987), Aliquippa (1988), Monessen (1995), Blackhawk (1996), Upper St. Clair (1996), Blackhawk (1999), Blackhawk (2000), Moon (2005) and North Catholic (2005).
