A scheduled meeting between the Serra Catholic and Geibel Catholic girls basketball teams was scheduled for Jan. 24 at the Gators' Connellsville-area campus. Because of inclement weather, however, the game was called off.
In an interesting twist, however, the two schools will meet in a first-round WPIAL Class A tournament game at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at Canon-McMillan. The two schools are located about 35 miles apart.
Geibel, which finished fourth in Section 3-A with a record of 8-6 and was 13-7 overall and is the Class A tournament's No. 12 seed. Fifth-seeded Serra Catholic's overall record is 13-7, but the Eagles won Section 4-A with a 10-0 record. The Eagles are coming off a 73-50 loss at Class AA No. 4 seed Carlynton on Feb. 9. Their last loss before that game was to Class AAA No. 9 seed Belle Vernon, 61-55, on Jan. 21.
