GIRLS BASKETBALL: Spring-Ford faces Cardinal O’Hara in PIAA semifinal

Last season ended in disappointment for Sammy Stipa and the Spring-Ford girls basketball team in the semifinals of the PIAA Class AAAA Tournament, a loss to Archbishop Carroll.

Spring-Ford girls basketball seniors Sarah Payonk, Brittany Moore, Courtney Hinnant, Sammi Haas and their teammates have waited a year for this.
Since suffering a season-ending loss to powerful Archbishop Carroll in the PIAA Class AAAA semifinal 364 days ago, the returning Rams made it their mission to at least get back to that point.

Tonight, Pioneer Athletic Conference and District 1-AAAA champion Spring-Ford (30-2) squares off against District 12 champ Cardinal O’Hara (24-5) in a state semifinal at 7:30 p.m. at William Tennent High School in Warminster.
