Council Rock Souths's Lady Hawks had their first two losses in district playoffs last week.
There is an age old saying that you can’t win them all. Council Rock South’s bids for an undefeated season and first-ever district title both came to halts last week, which was certainly grounds for disappointment. But in the grand scheme of things, while there would have been better times for losses, the District I Class AAAA semifinals and third-place consolation game Saturday were not the worst, either. After all, the Golden Hawks still have a grand opportunity to redeem themselves and claim a even more prestigious honor, that of being called a state champion, when the PIAA Class AAAA tournament kicks off Friday. “Yes, I believe that our confidence has gone down,” said sophomore shooting guard Taylor Dillon. “But, I really think we’re …

Since its inception, the Challenge has raised roughly $159,479 for the …

"You look forward to this game, but you don’t look forward to this game," senior Zach Sibel said. "You work hard for four years and then it all comes down to the last game at the Falcon’s Nest. It’s a lot of fun." You couldn’t have scripted it any better. There was overtime, half-court shots, adversity and a plethora of drama. Seniors Zach Sibel, Chris Glennie, Kris Hassel and John Evans each played a huge part in the outcome of the game. "The atmosphere was great," Sibel. "We tried to give the fans something to watch." Entering the …
