After a disappointing 2016-2017 season in which they finished last in their section with an overall record of 6-16, the boys varsity basketball team has rebounded this season and currently sits at 2-2 in their section and 6-5 overall.

They currently sit at 4th place in Section 2.  They have wins over Peters Township (0-4, 4-7) and Upper St. Clair (3-2, 7-5) and losses to Mt. Lebanon (4-0, 11-1) and Canon Mac (3-1, 9-1).

Most recently, on Friday, Jan. 5, the team lost a close one to Canon Mac, 58-54.

At half, the boys lead 29-27.

The high scorers of the game were Tommy DiRienzo with 13, Alex Mullen with 13 and Justin Meis with 11.

Next on the schedule is a section match against Connellsville (2-3, 7-5) at home on Friday, Jan. 12. The Falcons sit just one spot beneath the Hawks.  They also lost to Mt. Lebanon and Canon Mac, so it should be a fairly evenly matched game.

Come out and support the Hawks in this very important section matchup. Tip-off is 7:30 PM.
