This was the case for both girls teams as they were both tied for the lead for the division, however neither boys teams were in the running for the division title. The girls came up short and lost to Northern 80.5-69.5 suffering just their first loss of the season. Nevertheless, it was still a solid 9-1 season for the girls finishing just one game behind Northern York in the division.The boys suffered their third loss of the season losing to Northern 87-63 and finishing the season with a 7-3 overall record. The small school of Harrisburg Christian also participated in the meet but were handled by East Pennsboro losing to both the boys and girls 142-8.
