The 2013-14 Seton-LaSalle High School Basketball programs have had magical seasons. With only five losses and two WPIAL Championships between both the boys and girls teams, are competing for the PIAA Championship this coming weekend. Both teams have excellent talent and leadership.
The boys team have had an amazing one loss season this year. With the senior leadership of Dale Clancy, Levi Masua, Malik White, Tommy Rizza, Dom DelGreco and David Boehme, the boys have had a very good season. The boys are undefeated section champions and WPIAL champions. The seniors have an excellent supporting underclassman. Juniors Christian DelGreco, Ryan Norkus, Andrew Rodgers, Johnny Marzina, Adam Turzak, and Alec Mastovitch have helped out the team with the victories. Cletus Helton, Nico Popa, and Billy O’Malley are the sophomores that have helped out this year. Nolan Abbiatici is the only freshman on the varsity squad this year.
The girls are under the senior leadership Yacine Diop and Naje Gibson, who are both Pitt commits. The girls have supporting cast of juniors Cassidy Walsh, Morgan Henderson, Nicolette Newman, and Julie Deklaven. Sophomore Shaunay Edmonds has contributed a lot to this PIAA state run. The girls have lost 4 games in a tournament in Virginia at the beginning of the season. Along with Gibson and Diop signing with Pitt, Junior Cassidy Walsh has also verbally committed to Pitt to play basketball.
Both teams have worked hard this season to achieve the goals of winning WPIAL Championship and heading to the PIAA State Championship. Both teams can obtain their state titles this coming weekends. Goodluck to both teams this weekend!
