High school basketball: Quarterfinal schedule set for local teams in district playoffs

The next round of the playoffs are set for the Penns Valley girls’ and St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy boys’ basketball teams for the District 6 quarterfinals — if the weather cooperates.

The Lady Rams will meet Mountain League foe Tyrone at 7 p.m. Thursday at Huntingdon High School in the Class AA bracket. Penns Valley beat Philipsburg-Osceola at the same gym in the first round on Monday. The Lady Eagles won both regular-season meetings with the Lady Rams to win the league title, with Penns Valley second.

On the heels of the first district playoff win for any St. Joseph’s team in school history, the Wolves are set to meet Homer Center in the Class A quarterfinals at Central Cambria High School at 7:30 p.m. Friday. St. Joe’s beat Glendale in the first round Tuesday.
