Thanks everyone. See you at the races as soon as basketball finishes up. I hope it's not for a few weeks yet.

Here's the newspaper article from the game if anyone is interested.

Promise kept
Lady Titans experience victory

JOHNSTOWN - The Tussey Mountain girls basketball team vowed immediately after last season's playoff loss to play for the next district crown at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

The second-seeded Lady Titans earned a return trip to the Richland Township campus after a thrilling 65-63 double-overtime victory against No. 4 Berlin Brothersvalley for the District 5 Class A championship on Thursday at the Sports Center.

Forward Alex Stoudnour hit a layup with 1:27 left in the second extra session to tie it at 63. A foul shot by the 5-foot-10 senior with 24.3 seconds put the Lady Titans in front and a free throw by Macy Williams with 7.3 seconds remaining gave Tussey Mountain a slim two-point cushion.

Berlin's Jackie Kimmel missed a last-second desperation shot to avoid a third overtime and handed the championship to the Lady Titans.

It was the first District 5 title for Tussey Mountain (21-5) under coach Todd Gates.

''What an incredible game,'' Gates said. ''I felt like times when we were ready to put them away; there were times when I thought they were ready to put us away and both teams just continued to fight and fight and fight until the end. And it wasn't over until the final buzzer. It was an incredible game by two very good teams.''

The score was tied at 46 through regulation and at 59 after the first overtime in part due to Tussey Mountain guard Rachel Zimmerman's hot hand.

Zimmerman was blanked on the scoreboard in the first half, but the fiery 5-2 junior scored all 25 of her points, including hitting four 3-pointers, over the final two quarters and first overtime.

''Thank goodness Rachel got hot,'' Gates said. ''Rachel hit some critical shots at critical times.''

She scored eight of the Lady Titans' 13 points in the first overtime.

Zimmerman was ecstatic after winning the title.

''It's always been my dream,'' Zimmerman said. ''It's amazing. The feeling's indescribable.''

Stoudnour and Kaminsky each scored 11 points through the first two quarters to give Tussey Mountain a 24-15 lead at half. Stoudnour finished with 16 points and senior forward Katie Kaminsky added 14 for the Lady Titans.

Kimmel finished with 22 points and Brooke Snyder added 16, including six points in the first overtime, for the Lady Mountaineers (18-8).

District champion Tussey Mountain plays the fourth-seeded District 7 (WPIAL) team on March 7, part of a scheduled tripleheader at UPJ.

''We lost in the first round to Shanksville last year,'' Gates said. ''And we sat in that locker room amongst the tears and said next year our goal is to go to UPJ. The girls worked hard. We played in summer leagues and camps. They just put in countless hours to achieve this.''

Berlin (63): Paul 2 0-0 4, Snyder 6 4-4 16, Kimmel 9 3-6 22, Coddington 4 0-0 9, Rohrs 3 0-0 6, Etris 3 0-0 6, Hankinson 0 0-4 0. Totals 27 7-14 63.

Tussey Mountain (65): K.Kaminsky 5 4-7 14, Stoudnour 6 3-7 16, Williams 0 3-4 3, Swope 2 0-0 5, Zimmerman 6 9-11 25, Foster 1 0-0 2, J.Kaminsky 0 0-0 0, Lemin 0 0-0 0. Totals 20 19-29 65.

Berlin 8 7 13 18 13 4 - 63

Tussey Mountain 14 10 1210 13 6 - 65

3-point field goals: Berlin 2 (Kimmel, Coddington); Tussey Mountain 5 (Zimmerman 4, Swope).

Officials: Ron Copenhafer, Mike Baum, Scott Muthler.

Records: Tussey Mountain (21-5); Berlin (18-8)
