Season ends for Lady Scotties in PIAA second round loss

After their stunning 25-1 season shocked the WPIAL and defied Southmoreland’s underdog status, Southmoreland’s girls basketball team continued in the PIAA playoffs March 11 at Bedford High School against Lancaster Catholic (26-3).

Southmoreland rebounded from a 61-44 loss to North Catholic in the WPIAL title game on Feb. 28 when the Scotties won their first state playoff win. This was the first time Southmoreland had ever made it to the state playoffs in the history of the program. They won their first round game 57-29 over Huntingdon.

Unfortunately, the lady Scotties dropped a 64-56 decision to Lancaster Catholic. The game was the final game for both teams when the coronavirus pandemic ended all PIAA sports for the current school year.

In addition, coach Brian Pritts announced his resignation several weeks later, noting that he wanted to spend more time with his family.

The WPIAL runners-up ended the season with a 25-2 record, the best in Southmoreland basketball history.
