The last time …
Washington boys basketball failed to qualify for the WPIAL playoffs came during the 1994-95 season when the Prexies finished fifth in Section 5-AA/SA with a 6-8 section record. Wash High, coached by legendary Ron Faust, was 8-14 overall.
Burgettstown won the second, while Bentworth and Chartiers-Houston were the postseason qualifiers.
With Trinity's 67-47 win over Ringgold Wednesday night in Section 5-AAA, Washington was eliminated from playoff contention. The Prexies are 10-10 overall and 4-7 in section play with games remaining Friday against Trinity and Monday against north Catholic. Both games are at Wash High.
Washington had made the playoffs 15 consecutive seasons. The Prexies, who had competed at Class AA for years, moved up to Class AAA this season.
