Joey Lancellotti walked into the dugout at Neumann-Goretti last May already distraught over the loss that knocked Archbishop Wood out of the Catholic League playoffs. The news he received from coach Jim DiGuiseppe, however, was much, much worse. "I walked into the dugout, and coach was like, 'I have something to tell you. Your grandfather had a heart attack,' " recalled Lancellotti, now a junior righthanded pitcher for the Vikings. John Ierardi suffered the cardiac event before the game at his home in Bensalem, and his family asked DiGuiseppe not to tell Lancellotti, who pitched that day. "And he's like, my best friend," Lancellotti said.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Aubree Brown was fired up. The stalwart senior leader of the Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team pleaded her case to the officials with 52 seconds left in the fourth quarter of the PIAA Class AAA state final. She couldn't believe what had just happened. Blackhawk's Courtney Vannoy had converted a breakaway layup to put Wood down by three points. The play didn't quite put Wood in the hole; the Vikings were still down only a single possession. But Brown had flown by Vannoy with her arm up, and she was whistled for a controversial foul.

Aubree Brown's head is always on a swivel, as she looks for where the ball should go next. Brown, Archbishop Wood's senior captain, exudes a pivotal confidence for the Vikings (26-4), who will face Blackhawk in the PIAA Class AAA state final Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Giant Center in Hershey. Strong with the ball in her hands, the 6-foot guard/forward is a terrific passer. She almost always finds the open teammate. Brown does so with such frequency that she makes difficult passes look routine.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - When people think about Archbishop Wood girls' basketball teams, they usually think about defense. It's become a hallmark. And the Vikings have three straight state championships from 2010 to 2012 to show for it. There's the discipline, the strategy, the grit, and the uncanny ability to get the opponent to make a mistake. The result is that by the final buzzer, the opposing team has had one heck of a time trying to get the ball into the net. Interim coach Mike McDonald's team is so good on the defensive end that sometimes one forgets just how efficiently the Vikings run their offensive sets.

Shannon May wasn't going to let her eyes off Alyssa Monaghan. The task was simple, at least in theory, for the Archbishop Wood sophomore: shadow the Bonner-Prendergast senior guard. As soon as a Bonner-Prendergast player got a defensive rebound, there May was, glued to the Catholic League's most valuable player, her eyes transfixed on the St. Joseph's recruit. May was so focused on Monaghan's off-the-ball movements that, at one point, neither player realized when a loose ball bounced in her direction.

Through six quarters, Alyssa Monaghan refused to take a single break Wednesday. She knew there was too much on the line. Not only was the senior guard in the midst of propelling Bonner-Prendergast to a 59-53 double-overtime win over West York in the second round of the PIAA Class AAA playoffs, but she also knew she was within striking distance of a milestone. Monaghan's 32 points made good on both counts, and was enough to send the Pandas to a quarterfinal matchup against league-rival Archbishop Wood on Saturday at a site and time to be determined.
