Girls Basketball: Class AAA Section 5 has a tight race for first place

Written by Joe Koch on .

Trinity High's Hillers are just one of four teams that have designs for first place in Section 5-AAA. Defending WPIAL and PIAA Class AAA champion South Park leads the section with a 5-1 record. Trinity, Moon and South Fayette all share second place with 3-1 marks.

After starting the season with eight successive victories, the Hillers have dropped successive games to Serra Catholic (66-51), South Park (74-35) and Bethel Park (57-42).

Tonight, Trinity visits South Fayette, which has an overall mark of 4-5. A South Fayette victory would make an already tight section race all the more compelling.
