What a historic week it has been so far for our Girl’s and Boy’s Basketball programs!

-Last night, the Boys team upset #1 seed Notre Dame Green Pond by a score of 64-61. This win, coupled with a Panther Valley loss to New Hope Solebury, crowned Palmerton District XI AAA Champions for the first time since 1989! This win also qualified the team for the PIAA State Playoffs which begin next Saturday (Site and time TBA).


-The Boys next game will be Saturday, March 2nd  at 1pm at Quakertown High School vs. New Hope Solebury. The winner of this game will have a higher seed in the PIAA State Playoffs.


-Since the game is in District I, all tickets will have to be purchased the door. District I does not do advanced ticket sales and they charge a flat rate for everyone.


– All tickets will be $5 at the door on Saturday.


This is the first time since 1984 that both the Boys and Girls Basketball programs made the PIAA State Playoffs in the same year!


Congratulations goes out to both teams! Please come out and support them!
