Girls Basketball: Chartiers-Houston a player in Section 3-AA race

Written by Joe Koch on .

When Bishop Canevin High's girls basketball team rolled to a 53-28 victory over visiting Seton-LaSalle on Jan. 11, it looked as if the balance of power in the section was shifting from the Rebels to the Crusaders.

That still might be the case as each team enters the final week of the season with one loss apiece. Canevin is 9-1, and Seton-LaSalle is 8-1. Most thought the Crusaders would be unbeaten heading into Thursday's Section 3-AA finale at Seton-LaSalle.

But it didn't quite turn out that way.

Chartiers-Houston has emerged as a power broker in the section following a 41-36 victory over Bishop Canevin on Jan. 25. That result has placed the Bucs firmly in third place with a section record of 7-3.

For the second-straight season, offensive lineman Zack Crossey was a First Team selection, while running back Ryan Ruffing added his second all-region nod with a spot on the Third Team. Ruffing was joined on the Third Team by wide receiver/returner Daniel Lis.

Lis, a Chartiers-Houston graduate, made the team as a return man after finishing his senior season third in Division III in yards per punt return at 18.3, while taking two punts back for a touchdown -- including a school-record 93-yarder in the season-opener at Wooster.

His two return scores were the third-most among Division III counterparts. A semifinalist for the Walter V.
