Brad Everett profiles the Vincentian girls basketball team.
"HERSHEY, Pa. — Lexi Griggs exited the Vincentian locker room Saturday with the PIAA championship trophy firmly in her grasp and had no intentions of letting it go.
It served as a microcosm for Vincentian's season. The Royals exited last season as WPIAL and PIAA champions, were ranked No. 1 in the state all of this season, and ended a remarkable two-year run by repeating as WPIAL and PIAA champs.
Vincentian claimed its second consecutive PIAA title and third in school history by throttling Old Forge, 86-38, in the Class A final at Giant Center. The 48-point margin was the largest in PIAA girls championship history.
"It was a great icing on the cake," said Griggs, a junior guard/forward who scored 24 points. "It was just a perfect way to end the season and send our seniors off.""
