Two more local basketball teams advance to PIAA Final Four

The mid-March snowstorm forced the PIAA to play quarterfinals games on Sunday. Santander Arena in Reading hosted five consecutive contests involving local teams and only one came away victorious. York Catholic’s girls used a 20-7 rally in the second half to overtake Saint Basil Academy and went on to win 40-31. The Irish exacted revenge from last year’s state playoff loss to Saint Basil. Lancaster Catholic and Bishop McDevitt’s girls went head to head in a battle of Crusaders in the 4A quarterfinals. Lancaster Catholic won by double digits 62-46 to advance to the semifinals.
