Vikings and Vikettes are EPC basketball champions

The Vikings and Vikettes both won their Eastern Pennsylvania Conference championship games Feb. 16 at the PPL Center.

The girls defeated Easton 52-49, breaking Easton’s season-long win streak and the boys fought to win against Pocono Mountain West 61-54.

Following the Vikette’s win, they rose to the #1 spot in girls basketball rankings. The Vikings played Northwestern Lehigh in a playoff game Feb. 24 at William Allen High School.

Congratulations to both teams for their successful seasons!

The spring sports season is rapidly approaching and will begin March 6.
