Chartiers Valley is in first place in its section.
In other words, it's business as usual for the Colts, who are in familiar territory. They've won at least a share of the section title five years in a row.
Sporting an overall record of 11-3, Chartiers Valley stands alone atop Class 5A Section 2 with a 5-1 record. Chartiers Valley trailed Mars by one game heading into last week's play, but the Planets dropped two games to fall to 5-2. Hampton is also 5-2, while Moon is 4-2.
Chartiers Valley has won three straight section games since its only section loss, 72-66, at Mars. The Colts edged Moon, 57-55, before coming alive offensively in home wins against West Allegheny (91-37) and Montour (90-81). The Colts lost a non-section game at Mt. Lebanon on Saturday, but hope to bounce back tonight when they travel to Moon for a big section game.
