   In the most recent USA Today National High School Poll, Central Bucks West is currently ranked Number 4 and Erie Cathedral Prep is currently ranked Number 17.  Are these two Class AAAA powers on a collision course to meet in Hershey in December? Stay tuned!

     Washington upsets Aliquippa.  Strath Haven romps. CBW does it again. Tyrone beats Forest Hills.  Perry shocks Greenville. McKeesport continues to surprise. Bellefonte coming on strong. West Allegheny records 7th shutout, plus many more.
    Check out the brackets for the final 16 teams in each classification and see who the teams are paired against next week-end as we pare down the number of teams left for the coveted state title.

     Just in case you will not be able to watch the state championship games with Jed Donahue on PCN, or can't get to a computer for a webcast of the game, all four championships games will be reported live from Hershey on the Internet.  Our own Tom Elling and Rich Vetock will be doing a play-by-play text version of each of the four game for the PIAA. The play-by-play will remain on the site until next year so that you can go back and review the games. Just come to this front page for the link to all the state championship games.
