BOYERTOWN—There is big weekend of district action on tap for Unionville sports.
The Ches-Mont runner up wrestling squad will be battling in the individual sectional tournament for class AAA section 4 at Boyertown Area High School at 9:30 am Saturday.
The sectional marks the first steps toward the big dance at the Giant Center in Hershey where the best in the state will battle for the championship in three weeks.
Qualifiers will advance to next week’s southeastern regional.
Swimming- The boys’ and girls swimming teams earned a week off to get ready for next week’s PIAA District One meet which will be held at LaSalle in Philadelphia. More than twenty swimmers from Unionville qualified for the district meet. check back for the complete swimming district preview on Monday.
Girl’s basketball-Unionville head coach Tony Zambino and his talented squad will have an opportunity to erase the memory of a 50-45 loss in the middle of a mid season swoon to Haverford, by traveling to the mainline to take on the Fords Friday night at 7pm.
The number eleven seed Haverford (19-5), who comes into the game winning eight of their last nine game with their last loss coming at the hands of Conestoga on February 7th, is led by a senior quartet that the Indians will have to find a way to contain.
Fords senior sniper Jaclyn Gantz has posted 47 three point field goals made, while averaging 15.5 ppg., meanwhile guards Katrina Gieger (7.3 ppg) and Maura O’Connell (7.3 ppg) compliment 5’10” forward Sharee Halstead, who has worked the paint to the tune of 8.9 ppg.
The Indians (15-7) ironically enough can thank Allison Lewis, who they will rely on heavily if they are to advance to face the winner of the #6 Upper Dublin vs #27 Sun Valley match up in next weeks second round of the PIAA Class AAAA District playoffs, for choosing their opponent by hitting the game winning shot against Kennett the last time the ladies hit the floor, giving Unionville its #22 seeding.
Unionville is riding the momentum of a four game winning streak, and 6-of 7 as they head to Haverford on Friday night at 7 pm.
Seniors Cami Redfern and Janice Hauck will be depended on as well as Lewis to set the tone early as the Indians game suits playing with the lead.
