Girls basketball, week in review

Team of the Week – Chartiers-Houston
The Bucs went 3-0 last week and all but ensured themselves of finishing in the top two teams from Section 3-A.
Chartiers-Houston opened the week with a 15-point win over Avella. Four players scored in double figures, led by Rachel Burgess and Tori Foster with 13 points apiece. Defensively, C-H limited Amanda Temple to 18 points, nearly five below her WPIAL-leading average.
The Bucs went on to beat Bentworth, a probable playoff team from Section 4-AA, and section foe Jefferson-Morgan.
A playoff team last year, Chartiers-Houston is 7-2 in section play and 13-5 overall with key games remaining against Carmichaels and section leader Fort Cherry.

Runner-up – Fort Cherry
The Rangers, unbeaten in Section play and against Class A competition, defeated Carmichaels and Avella.

Starting five
Beka Bellhy, Fort Cherry
Shannon Flament, Charleroi
Tori Foster, Chartiers-Houston
Morgan Kurtz, Trinity
Jocelyn Lucsko, McGuffey
Off the bench
Anna Shashura, Beth-Center

Streak snapped – Not sure what the scene was like following Waynesburg's win over Mapletown was like, but if the Raiders celebrated some, who could blame them? Waynesburg snapped a 43-game losing streak with last Tuesday's 59-31 win over Mapletown. Danielle Jacobs led Waynesburg with 15 points.
