Congratulations to the boys’ varsity basketball team and Coach Steve Gabryluk on an historic season. The team finished in first place of the Colonial League West Division finishing the regular season with a 17-5 record. They also established a new record for most wins in a season as they finished the year with a 21-7 overall tally.
This year marked the first time our boys basketball team captured the District XI Championship Title with a 72-38 victory over Panther Valley. With determination, skill and commendable sportsmanship, the Lions dominated the fourth quarter the first round of the PIAA State Competition and pulled out a well deserved victory over Paul Robeson School with a score of 55-47. Next the Lions defeated Northwest in the second round of the state tournament, earning the team a spot in the Elite Eight. The team’s extraordinary post-season ended with an 83-73 loss to Constitution in the PIAA Class 2A quarterfinals at Spring-Ford High School.
Our school should be proud of the team’s accomplishment throughout the year as the players’ individual and collective growth were evident. The team competed with energy, determination, and passion without compromising sportsmanship throughout the campaign. They represented themselves and Moravian Academy extremely well during this fantastic season.
