The Section 1-6A softball championship will be decided Thursday when Mt. Lebanon visits Canon-McMillan.
The Blue Devils are 6-1 in the section and have a chance to win the title outright.
The Big Macs check in with a 5-2 section record. If they win, they would finish in a three-way tie for the section championship with Mt. Lebanon and Bethel Park (6-2).
The fact that multiple teams could finished tied for the title is nothing new for this section.
In the last nine seasons, there has been a two-way or three-way tie for the section crown five times.
In that same time frame, Canon-McMillan has shared or won the section outright seven times.
The only team that has not been a part of the section title picture this past decade has been Mt. Lebanon.
The Blue Devils last won the section championship, either shared or outright, back in 2010.
Mt. Lebanon beat Canon-McMillan, 18-14, in a wild offensive contest in the first meeting between the two teams last week.
You can hear the game on Trib HSSN at 4:15 p.m.
