MONTOURSVILLE — A stingy defense propelled the Lewisburg girls basketball team to its first district title since 2007 and first ever title in the Class AAA ranks.
The No. 5-seeded Dragons (15-10) topped the second-seeded girls from Athens, 38-33, Saturday at Montoursville and moved on to the PIAA Class AAA Tournament, which begins Saturday for Lewisburg against Scranton Prep, the third-place team from District 2. That game will tip at 3:30 p.m. from Williamsport.
In the other district final from Saturday, the Meadowbrook Christian School Lions fell to top-seeded St. John Neumann.
The Milton boys basketball team won the District 4 Class AAA title Friday night at Shikellamy and will play its first PIAA Tournament game at 7:30 p.m. Friday back at Shikellamy. Meadowbrook will travel to Lackawanna College to take on Old Forge at 6 p.m. Friday.
