FLEETWOOD -

For the first time in 35 years, the Fleetwood girls basketball team is going to the state tournament. The Tigers knocked off division rival Berks Catholic in their quarterfinal game Saturday, punching their ticket to both states and the Giant Center for the District semifinals on Wednesday.

Fleetwood roared out to a big lead over the Saints and held off a furious rally to earn the victory.

Fleetwood coach Matt Kellett knows he's had a special team all year. Taking them to Hershey is even sweeter.
