Also, congrats to a Lancaster Co. team- Linville Hall – on winning the 1A game. BTW, Linville is Coached by Mike Shatzman, ex-head coach at Pe1uea Valley.

The wifi issues continue to haunt us. However, we did piece together games this week. Very special thinks to Spooky Nook and the Lancaster Mennonite boosters. We cannot produce games without support from sponsors. S/O to Bruce Badgley for producing and dealing with several tech issues. James Hein and Warren Goodling on the calls- guest appearance by Dell for the LMHS/Antietam game.

District 3

Due to a concert Friday night at the Giant Center, the district squeezed in 12 games in 2 days.
Both days (6500 first day) were well attended using Hershey’s online tix procedure. The press row had 2 tables which helped with having a space for the photographers to work in the second row. Dell and Andy were in their usual seats right off the foul line on the far end. We were kept company by LNP’s Mike Gross, John Walk, and Jeff Reinhart. Best to Rod Frisco, District 3 pr man, on his upcoming retirement.

Pick and roll
Click HERE for previous shows. Last weeks guests were Jon Shultz of LCDay and Mike Gaffey of Bishop McDevitt. We will produce one more show AFTER the PIAA Tournament is concluded. Hoping to get some coaches live for that show.

PIAA Tournament
The first round of the tournament will be played on the higher seeded team’s home court. After that, the teams will be playing on neutral sites, although usually the higher seeded teams play in their back yard. The PIAA site crashed this morning as everyone wants this parings on Sunday 🙂 We will post the LL boys schedule soon. Besides teams that played at Hershey this week, ELCO and Hempfield also qualified for the tournament. Both teams will hit the road this week.
