Class 6A: If there is one thing that can be said about the quality of girls basketball on the 6A level in the South Hills is that the sport is on solid ground.
Two of the four teams that qualified for the WPIAL Class 6A tournament from Class 6A, Section 3 played well enough to qualify for the PIAA tournament.
Mt.Lebanon won the section with a 9-1 record, and the Blue Devils were 19-7 overall. Peters Township and Canon-McMillan also advanced to the tournament. The Indians finished second with an 8-2 record and were 14-9 overall. And Canon-McMillan was in survival mode by finishing four in the section with a 4-6 record and were 8-15 overall. The Big Macs were eliminated in the first round by Hempfield, 65-47, and Peters Township earned a 55-41 first-round victory over Seneca Valley only to be ousted by eventual PIAA fourth-place qualifier Penn Hills in a 58-55 heart-breaking loss.
But the real success story in the section was the effort turned in by Bethel Park.
