Perkiomen School Girls Win League Title
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

Members of Perkiomen School's girls basket ball team celeb-

rate their Tri-County School Independent League Title win on

Feb. 13.

            Perkiomen School's girls basketball team captured the Tri-County Independent School League title last week. The team built an early first-half lead, but needed to hang on for a 22-18 victory over Barrack Hebrew Academy on Wednesday, Feb. 13.

            Tera Heintz – a sophomore from Green Lane – scored a team-high six points for the Panthers, who never trailed. Naomi Knight contributed five points.  Chardae Stone and Abbey Glavin each contributed four points.

            Stone and Maddie Springman each hit a pair of foul shots in the final minutes to preserve the victory at AIM Academy and secure their first league title under head coach Nikki Miscevious.

            Despite building a 14-2 halftime lead, top-seeded Perkiomen School held off late rally by the Cougars, who pulled within a point with a minute remaining. Miscevious said the nerve wracking nature of the second half made it difficult to watch Stone and Springman covert two foul shots with 45 and 20 seconds left, respectively.

          "I had all my fingers crossed, the coach said. "I watched, but I didn't want to look."

            The Panthers offense managed just six points in the final 16 minutes. They attempted to string together long possessions in order to milk the clock, according to Miscevious. "The shots we were getting were not falling," she said.

            Consective baskets by Barrack during the second half swung the momentum and forced Perkiomen School's young players to panic, according to the coach.

            "During timeouts I had to keep reminding the girls they were in control becase we had the lead," Miscevious said.

            The coach suspected a close contest against the Cougars. Her team won the two regular season games in overtime and double overtime, respectively.

            Perkiomen School's scrappy defense allowed just two first-half points. The coach highligted the performances of Abbey Glavin and Maddi Springman. 

            Glavin, a junior from Coopersburg, shut out Lexi Schachter, Barrack's top offensive post player. Springman – a freshman from Boyertown – limited Dayna Felger, the team's point guard. Maddi did a phenomenal job," the coach said.
