Although they lost their first PIAA State Championship tournament game, it was a narrow 2-point defeat that came down to the final minute of the ball game. Our girls were playing against Lebanon Catholic, a parochial school. Because these schools are able to recruit beyond their school’s geographic boundaries, Sayre was not expected to have much of a chance.
Our ladies proved everyone wrong. When they opened the game to a 7-2 lead, Lebanon Catholic knew they were going to have their hands full.
Hampered by turnovers in the 3rd quarter, the ladies fought back from a 10-point deficit. It was an exciting game, and it was also gratifying to see so many Redskin fans make the long trek down to Lancaster.
The returning starters have got to be excited about next season!
