Out of the running

In Basketball, North Star, Shade on March 10, 2009 at 11:26 pm

Disappointment reigns after the North Star girls and Shade boys were ousted from the PIAA playoffs Tuesday night.

The Lady Cougars fell 55-34 to Pennsylvania’s No. 1 Class AA team, Villa Maria Academy. Congrats to Chelsea Danel though, who finished with a game-high 16 points. Also, kudos to the seniors, who have helped guide the Cougars to ever-increasing heights: Jenna Koontz, Jess Tomlinson, Nikki Smith and Sarah Pelesky.

As for the Panthers, it was a spirited effort against Serra Catholic, but Shade ended up on the wrong side of a 74-64 score against the reigning Class A state champs. Josh Barnes hit for a huge game, and is part of one of the top senior classes to have come through the area. Watching Joel Kaminsky, Brandon Kudasik, Garrett Berkey, Steve Rapsky and Barnes play will be missed.
