Another journey to the PIAA title game seemed like it could be in store for the Chartiers Valley boys, who, just like in 2010, had a high-scoring McConnell brother lead the Colts to a WPIAL title his senior season.
The script ended a bit differently this time, though, with Chartiers Valley being eliminated from the PIAA Class AAAA playoffs by section rival Mt. Lebanon, 50-48, in a first-round game Saturday.
The Colts finished with a 26-4 record, making them the only WPIAL team to win at least 20 games each of the last nine seasons. Coach Tim McConnell's team boasts a 216-36 record during that time, making it to the WPIAL title game six times and winning two championships.
Matty McConnell concluded his career with 2,018 points. His brother, T.J, scored 2,406 in his career. No brothers in WPIAL history have combined to score as many points. Both won WPIAL championships and WPIAL scoring titles their senior seasons.
