Varsity Girls Basketball Team goes to states

After a slow start, the girls basketball team regrouped and led the charge down the second half of the season to a third place section finish and a WPIAL playoff berth.

The Bears bowed out of the WPIAL tournament in the second round against Quigley Catholic, but qualified for the PIAA play-in bracket. After big wins against Rochester and Riverview, the squad qualified for the state tournament against Keystone High School. The Bears found themselves down early only to mount a furious comeback in the second half that fell just short of the win. The team finished the season 14-12.

Sophomore Ayanna Townsend was named to the WPIAL all-section team, and also named a High School Sports Unsung Hero by CoGo’s.
