Monessen by at least 40 over McGuffey...Nice event for a great cause though

Monessen should be strong in Class AA this year.

I have an idea to make Hoopfest a little more attractive to the local basketball fan.

I say five games - four boys, one girls - at one venue. Mix and match the top local teams.

Here's a possibility:
Noon - Burgettstown vs. Washington
2 p.m. - Peters Township vs. Monessen
4 p.m. - Peters Township girls vs. Washington girls
6 p.m. - South Fayette vs. Canon-McMillan
8 p.m. - Trinity vs. Ringgold

I like that idea mike. Quick question though, is Trinity not participating in the hoopfest this year despite hosting games?

Yes, Trinity will not play – boys or girls – because both teams were overscheduled and had to drop games.
