Big day in Moravian Academy Athletics today! Our boys’ and girls’ swimmers will compete in the District XI Championships at Parkland HS this afternoon starting at 2:45 pm and tomorrow morning. This evening, our boys’ basketball team will play in the District XI finals. They will face Executive Leadership Academy in the finals – 8 pm tip-off at Catasauqua High School. The boys’ team advanced to the finals by defeating a tough Minersville team by a score of 67-58 at Northern Lehigh HS this past Tuesday. They have also earned a birth to the PIAA State playoffs set to begin on Saturday, March 9th at a site and time to be determined.
Unfortunately, our varsity girls’ basketball team’s season came to an end last Monday in the District XI semi-finals. They lost to Marian Catholic by a score of 38-36. The girls competed extremely hard and fought back from a nine-point deficit in the second half. Marian Catholic scored the go-ahead basket with 3 seconds left. Congratulations on a successful season! Thank you to our seniors Sally Hornik, Kalli Miller, Tori Spugnardi and Lizzie Stifel for a great four years!
