If one looks back at the sporting news in 2013, one story dominates the headlines: the whole-grade sharing agreement between North Fayette and Valley Community.

Such a momentous change dwarfs any attempt to pick the other nine top stories. So, let us examine the highlights of 2013 as they happened.
