Should the portage girls have been able to play up at 5a instead of at 2a? Wasn’t that unfair for Hollidaysburg? Why should such a small school have to play such a large school in district playoffs.

[The problem isn’t BG beat Portage, it’s that we pretend BG and Portage are the same population demographic

So the fact that portage made it a close game and ended up losing is the problem. Got it. Yep, the bg girls were sure a heck of a problem when Bellwood won district and state titles the last couple of years. Now that bg won it’s a problem again. I know nobody will be happy until public and private are separate. Until that happens we’ll keep having this same pointless argument. Enjoy the rest of the playoffs, I know I will.
This is why people complain, perfect example. Acting like there is no advantage at all. Yet you’re the ones who are the first to complain when teams send out Girl’s in wrestling because, “that’s not fair”. Enjoy your playoff run
:D
Thanks!

So should smaller public schools in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia be excluded as well? They get to draw from a vastly larger area than even bg, Carroll, and McCourt.

Isn’t it sad that a AA feels more confident that a AAAAA school is more close to an equal opponent than a A or AA private school?

Hence why those schools are 5A or 6A.....

What about St. Francis coach Joe Haigh's daughters.
Just go back to last year with the Haigh sisters. The senior played for Bishop Carroll. The soph for Bishop Guilfoyle.

If that doesn't smell like a rat, nothing does.

I agree with you, but in this specific case, Portage played up specifically to avoid BA & the Campbell girl, who ironically were upset by BG!!!

Portage was avoiding Bellwood if were being honest.
