Dallastown vs. Spring Grove

With 1 minute, 33 seconds left in Sunday’s game against Archbishop Wood, at 8:44 p.m., the Spring Grove High School basketball career of Eli Brooks was over.

There was no grand send off. No standing ovation as he was subbed out.

Instead, he just took his place on the bench, along with a number of other Rockets, following a timeout. It came moments before their season came to an end with a 71-46 loss in the PIAA Class 5-A quarterfinals to the Vikings.

Northeastern vs Meadville PIAA Class 5A boys basketball semifinal

ALTOONA — All year long, the Northeastern boys’ basketball team never made excuses about any of its performances.

Of course, as a 30-win team which earned division, league and district championships, the Bobcats rarely had any reason to make excuses.

Spring Grove vs Northeastern D-3 Class 5A basketball Semifinal

READING — No one would’ve faulted the Spring Grove boys’ basketball team for being upset that the best season in program history just ended.

It would only be natural, especially for the seniors on the team.

It would’ve been perfectly acceptable to take a day or two, or even a week, to let things marinate, and then look back and smile about everything the team accomplished this season.

Spring Grove vs Northeastern boys' basketball

MANHEIM — At this point in the season, the Northeastern boys’ basketball team is used to being the smaller of two teams in a game.

Typically playing five guards, and with nobody on the roster taller than 6-feet, 4-inches, height is never on the Bobcats’ side. So, when they went into Thursday’s PIAA Class 5-A state second-round game against Upper Merion, a team that boasted three players over 6-6, they weren’t intimidated.
