The Warriors seemed destined for overtime as the final seconds ticked down at Saturday’s District III championship game.
That was until Harrisburg inadvertently fouled sophomore Jaden Walker, sending her to the line for two shots and the district title.
Walker converted both, giving the Warrior girls their first district championship in school history by a final score of 44-42. It was a raucous environment at the Giant Center in Hershey, as Susquehannock students and family flooded the stands. The crowd’s energy was electric from the opening tip all the way through the final buzzer.
Down 8 going into the half, the Warriors used their aggressive brand of defense to force a handful of turnovers and turn the momentum tables on Harrisburg. They closed the game on a 12-4 run, capped off by Walker’s game-sealing free throws.
For the Warriors, junior Taylor Tannura scored 13 points and sophomore Jayla Galbreth scored 8. Walker contributed 12 points, and her clutch shots earned her a nomination for GameTimePA’s Athlete of the Week honors. The Warriors still have unfinished business; they will proceed to take on Radnor High School this Saturday, March 11 in the first round of the state tournament at West York High School, beginning at 5 pm.
