Coming into the last week of section play, the Lady Hawks were tied with the Mt. Lebanon Blue Devils.  Each needed the other team to lose or would share the section as “co-champions.”

This past Thursday, Feb. 6, the Lady Hawks took on the Baldwin Highlanders on Senior Night. Also, while the Lady Hawks were playing, the Blue Devils were matched up against the Upper St. Clair Panthers.

The Lady Hawks ended up overcoming the Highlanders with a score of 58-49.  Also, with fortune in the Hawks’ favor, Mt. Lebanon lost to the Panthers 53-40, losing their chance of being co-section champions.
