Local trio in Roundball Classic
Tried to get this item into a Scholastic Notebook on the pages of the Observer-Reporter. Our space has not permitted a notebook to run this week.
The Roundball Classic will be played Saturday, April 17 at Geneva College in Beaver Falls and the event features some of the top boys and girls players from the WPIAL.
Class AAA Player of the Year T.J. McConnell of Chartiers Valley and Sewickley Academy’s Tom Droney, the Class A Player of the Year, accepted invitations to play, along with other top talents such as Hampton’s Bill Luther and Mt. Lebanon’s Evan Pierce.
A few of the top local players will be included in the games, which begin at 4 p.m. with the WPIAL Class A/AAAA girls all-stars vs. the WPIAL Class AA/AAA girls.
Peters Township’s Craig Wolcott will play for the Class AAAA all-stars at 6 p.m. against the Class AAA team.
Washington’s Troy Wilson and South Fayette’s Mike Burroughs are part of the Class AA all-star team, which plays the Class A team at 8 p.m.
