This is school year No. 4 for the Catholic League's involvement in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association and La Salle's — 1 p.m. for Class AAAA honors vs. Council Rock South at Penn State's Medlar Field at Lubrano Park — will be the first baseball team to compete in a championship game.
