A team that has won a WPIAL title two of the past four seasons added a summer league crown to its résumé last week.
Vincentian, one of the premier programs in Class A, capatured the Pittsburgh Basketball Club Summer League small-school championship with a 62-50 triumph against Northgate.
The Royals went 10-1 in the league, which consisted of Class AA and A schools. The Royals topped defending WPIAL Class AA champion Seton-LaSalle in the semifinals.
Among Vincentian's standouts were the team's three returning starters: Ryan Wolf, Jamison Nee and Jay Cortese.
"I couldn't be more pleased because we have kids that work really hard," Vincentian coach George Yokitis said. "I think there's such a direct relationship between hard work and results, and I think they're seeing that. I think they've learned how to win. The kids before them have won. They've learned to win as a result of the kids that have won before them and because of the hard work they're putting in now."
Last season, Vincentian went 24-4 and advanced to the WPIAL semifinals
