Joe Koch's feature on the Avonworth boys' basketball team:

"No one can say Avonworth High School's boys basketball season has been dull.

A number of the WPIAL Class AA team's games have been decided in the last quarter with four of the Antelopes' 13 victories won by nine or fewer points, including a one-point thriller against Chartiers-Houston, 48-47, and three-point wins against Freedom, 63-60, and Sto-Rox, 45-42.

The Antelopes (13-9, 8-4) concluded their regular season with a 65-52 non-section victory against Shady Side Academy Monday and qualified for the WPIAL playoffs by finishing third in Class AA Section 6."
