Solong for as much as you think you know about Berlin Hiland, it amazes me you can't even spell their school name correctly. Great Game to the Maplewood girls team, that was an exciting game to watch. Good Luck against Hiland and remember to leave it all on the court on Saturday.

Congrats to the maplewood girls for making it to the Elite 8. It is a great accoplishment to make it this far. solong can talk all he wants about a "weak" NAC schedule hurting NAC teams in the play-offs. But using your term, Facts are Facts. Look at the lower division of the AAC and compare the Regional and state appearences in all NAC NAC teams, and see who has more. Without Champion girls SB and the Howland AAC invitational Boys Sectional/District tournament. The numbers may surprise you.

Congrats lady Rockets you all made rocket nation so proud of you. Way to represent. And for solong, it is Berlin Hiland not Highland. What does anything have to do with rising up to a team they have already played, absolutly nothing. It is tournament time and that is what you are supposed to do. Rise to the occasion. Maybe that is what PV lacks. As far as PV being division 3, it should be a different ballgame you have more student/athletes. Just like D2 is a different ball game than D3. Quit making excuses you idiot.

I'll eat crow on this one but not the next. Rockets rose to the occasion against a team they had already played. Lowellville come out of the second weakest sectional/district in the state.The Rockets will be grounded big time by Berlin Highland. YES, fact are facts. Teams around here are no match for them. And you are right you cannot take anything away from the girls from their great season. Just like Lordstown,Bristol and PV the NAC schedule hurts them. Of course PV is in Division III which is whole different ballgame in the tournament.

Facts are FACTS.....Looks like the 2nd best team in the NAC (even though they are LEAGUE CHAMPS), who was suppose to get beat about 3 games ago in their short lived tournament run ARE Sectional & District Champs & Regional Finalist appearance MINIMUM (5-0 winning games by an average of 15 points, who was also in the weakest sectional / district (FALSE, see Lowellville) are now one of the FINAL 8 TEAMS LEFT IN THE STATE!!!!!Congrats to Coach Yoder, the girls, and the fans of the Lady Rockets and best of luck Saturday Night. Regardless of the outcome Sat. night everything you accomplished cannot be taken away from you!
