Quigley Catholic High's girls basketball team has enjoyed plenty of success in recent seasons, and the 2014-15 campaign was no exception.
The Spartans raced through Section 1-A with a 10-0 record, and they reached the semifinals of the WPIAL Class A tournament before falling to eventual champion Vincentian Academy. A win over Meyersdale put the Spartans in the second round of the PIAA Class A tournament. That's where they fell to Blarisville, 51-39, this past Wednesday in a game played at Hempfield.
After taking a 15-13 lead in the first quarter, Quigley was outscored 17-6 in the second period. That was a big factor as the two teams played relatively even in the second half.
Gabbie Smith led Quigley with 17 points. She fouled out in the final minute of the game. Liz Duer, in her final game with the Spartans, added 16.
