Varisty Notebook: Mt. Lebanon's 2 teams magnets for crowds at Palumbo: Schenley makes a splashBoth Erik and Leah are swimmers with the JCC Sailfish and both played water polo last year. And, both are going to the PIAA Meet (High School States) next week.
When Schenley won the City League boys' swimming championship Saturday, it marked the first time since 1998 that Allderdice did not win the title. Twelve years ago, Brashear won the title. Allderdice was second this year.
For a school that will be around for only one more year, Schenley is enjoying plenty of success. In the fall, Schenley won City League football, girls' soccer and boys' soccer championships.
Schenley was led by freshman Erik Rauterkus, who won the 200- and 500-yard freestyle events, and also was on two winning relay teams.
Another freshman was a standout in the girls' City League meet. Allderdice's Leah Furman won the 200 and 500 freestyle events and was a member of two championship relay teams.
The girls relays from Dice also established new city records.
