While many area schools participated in holiday tournaments during the final week of 2015, the Vincentian Academy girls basketball team spent some time away from the court. That's not to say the Royals haven't had some challenges.
After seven games, Vincentian has an overall 5-2 record, and the Royals carry a 3-0 record in Section 2-A into today's 7:30 p.m. game at Riverview. The Royals did have some challenges heading into today's game.
Starting with a trip to Beaver County for the Blackhawk Tournament that featured two defending state champions – Class A Vincentian and Class AAA Blackhawk – the Royals have had some interesting games.
After losing to Pine-Richland, 61-49, in the Blackhawk Tournament, the Royals came back in the consolation game to beat Seton-LaSalle, 65-45. Seton-LaSalle won the PIAA Class AA title two years ago, and the Rebels were the PIAA Class AA runner-up last season.
