UPDATE: 3/16: The SLS Lady Rebels will play Greensburg Central Catholic at Chartiers Valley High School on Friday, March 18th at 6pm. Come cheer them on to victory!
UPDATE 3/15: Seton-LaSalle 56, Ligonier Valley 28: Seton-LaSalle (26-2) held its fourth opponent in a row to fewer than 40 points and advanced to the quarterfinals for the second consecutive season with the win against District 6 runner-up Ligonier Valley (19-9) at Hempfield. Angela Heintz led the WPIAL champion Rebels with 16 points. The Rebels outscored the Rams, 11-1, in the second quarter on their way to a 17-point halftime lead.
Congratulations to the Varsity Girls Basketball Team for winning the WPIAL championship! They dominated Jeannette, winning by forty five points, the largest margin ever recorded in a WPIAL girls title game. With a final score of 74-29 on Friday, the Lady Rebels took revenge for last year’s loss to Jeannette in the championship game.
Third time’s a charm, it seems, because this is the third year in a row the girls have been in the title game. This is their first win out of those three games, however, and what a satisfying win it was.
Freshman Naje Gibson contributed 16 points, sophomore Angela Heintz had 14, and seniors Jordan Dwyer (13), Emily Marecic (11), and Amy O’Keefe (10) also helped out the team with scoring.
David Assad covered the WPIAL Class AA girls basketball championship game between Seton-LaSalle and Jeannette.
“For the second consecutive year, a freshman was the leading scorer for the winning team in the WPIAL Class AA girls basketball championship game at the Palumbo Center. And once again, the title-game featured a matchup of Seton-LaSalle against Jeannette.
That is where the similarity ends. Last season, Jeannette won a close game with the clutch play of then-freshman Ciara Gregory. Last night, Seton-LaSalle was the big winner over Jeannette, 74-29. In fact, Seton-LaSalle was the biggest winner in WPIAL girls title-game history which began in 1971.”
