Brian Batko profiles the Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic girls basketball team.
"The Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic girls wanted to take their usual school van to the PIAA basketball finals last weekend in Hershey, Pa.
Coach Molly Rottmann nixed that idea, insisting on a little more luxury for their trip to the Class A title game, but perhaps it says a lot about this championship-winning bunch.
"They're just a great group," Rottmann said. "We talked about, early on, 'You have that special chemistry that you need to be successful,' and I think they really bought into it."
So much so that the Trojanettes (28-3) captured their first PIAA crown since 1995 with a 56-33 rout of Lourdes Regional last Saturday. It was quite a comeback story after the Trojanettes lost to section-rival Vincentian in the WPIAL championship."
