HERSHEY – The Trinity High School girls basketball team didn’t have the storybook ending to the program’s best season.
The Hillers fell one victory shy of a state championship. The basketball machine that is Archbishop Carroll won its fifth PIAA title in eight years, defeating Trinity, 34-26, Saturday night in the Class 5-A final at the Giant Center.
That the season ended on a losing note should not put a damper on the Hillers’ remarkable run. They went where no other Washington County girls basketball team has gone. Trinity made it all way the way to Hershey – Chocolate Town, the site of the PIAA Championships. Though Trinity fell one victory and nine points shy of the program’s first state championship, there is no denying this was truly a sweet season.
