Time again, for those whacked out (not Mac) high school basketball scores

The city league sports scene features league play were nobody wins. It happened again last night in a playoff game. The final four for girls basketball had a final score of 79 to 27. Playoffs. Winner advances to the city league championship game.

Plus, South Vo Tech isn't playing any more. This isn't a WESTINGHOUSE score.

Our city schools need to get into the WPIAL.

Pittsburgh needs to figure out how to compete -- day in and day out. Every day competition needs to flourish here. What we've got now sucks. And, it won't be expensive. It is a cheap improvement.
The city's boys' semifinal basketball game this evening at Brashear at 6:30 PM: Schenley vs. Carrick, (got 4th seed).

Girls' basketball last night saw Schenley winning their semifinal match against Perry at the Allderdice gym by score of 79 to 27. Even with the one-sided action, the games are very exciting with some amazing passes and lots of 3 point shots in preparation for the finals at the A.J. Palumbo Center on Thursday, at 7 PM. (boys' finals are at 5:30).

Schenley's swim team finished its dual meet season last evening with a loss to Allderdice, the perennial city league champs. The city league championships are 12 pm Saturday, February 23 at Trees Hall, University of Pittsburgh. Last year, the Schenley Spartans came in second to 'Dice and our swimmers won several medals. Ellie Tecza qualified for states at that meet ( 'Dice had only one qualifier).

PSCC: The regularly scheduled meeting of Schenley's PSCC is Wednesday, Feb. 20th at 6 pm in the Schenley library. The scheduled topic this month is world language/IS/IB. If you have questions about the program, block scheduling, sequence of classes, electives . . . Wednesday will be a good opportunity to get some answers. High school reform will be discussed at a later meeting.

Did anyone attend the workshop held on 2/11 for filling out the FAFSA forms sponsored by NEED?

If anyone has IS related information to share with the email list, I will be happy to send it.

My boys and I dropped into the swim meet yesterday, between traffic jams. The meet was nice.
