The girls varsity basketball team is ready to take on the Upper Saint Clair Lady Panthers on Monday, Jan. 31 at home. The two teams’ first meeting of the season ended in a dramatic Lady Hawks’ win with a score of 52-47.

Going into that game, USC was undefeated and tied for first place in the section with Mt. Lebanon. Now the Panthers stand at second place while the Lady Hawks sit in fourth.

The Lady Hawks are anticipating another intense game with the Lady Panthers. After a hard-fought loss to Peters Township on Thursday, they are looking to bounce back in a big way. The girls have had two days to prepare for the game, and they have been putting in the effort that is needed to come out with a win.

“We have been preparing really hard for this game,” said Emma Dziezgowski, who had twenty points in the last game between the Hawks and the Panthers. “We have been watching film, and our scout team has been putting in the work,” she continued. 

On the JV side, the last meeting between the teams ended in a loss for the Lady Hawks in overtime. They are prepared for another strenuous game but are driven to come out on top.

Good luck, Lady Hawks!
