Fleetwood girls focused on Radnor in PIAA opener

The Tigers face Radnor in their PIAA opener Saturday, their first appearance in the state tournament in more than 30 years.


While wrestling is just one day away from crowning champions, basketball begins its hunt for the crown Friday. The Fleetwood girls are among the competitors in the state's 3-A bracket.

The Tigers will travel to Plymouth-Whitemarsh Saturday afternoon for a date with Radnor in a first round game.

It's a tall order for the Tigers. Radnor is the District I champion.

But Fleetwood is battle-tested this year, earning the 4th seed out of District 3.

This is the Tigers first trip to states since the late 70's. Led by a core group of seniors, they are highly motivated to make sure it is not a one-and-done experience.
