Weiser girls among Berks II contenders down the stretch

The Conrad Weiser girls are one of the prime contenders for the Berks II title, which will be decided over the next week.


The Conrad Weiser girls are in a three-way tie with Fleetwood and Berks Catholic for first place in Berks II. The tightly contested division will be decided in the final week of the season.

With Conrad Weiser's win over Fleetwood and Hamburg's surprise upset of Berks Catholic Tuesday night, the tie was created with just a week's worth of regular season left.

The Scouts took a lead into the second half and did an outstanding job of keeping the ball away from Fleetwood.

Weiser did an even better job at the free throw line, going 14 of 15 in the fourth quarter.

But the Scouts recognize that they can't focus on the win too much. They'll need all the energy they can get down the home stretch.
