Everything the Archbishop Wood girls' basketball players did Saturday afternoon looked to be second nature to them. Every cut. Every pass. Every defensive slide. But it started before the contest against Gwynedd Mercy even began. From the way the Vikings warmed up at Archbishop Ryan to the demeanor of the players during the announcement of starting lineups, it all seemed rather routine for them. Then Wood stepped onto the floor to compete, and it was more of the same. The Vikings had been there, done that - and the experience and composure showed.

Mary Greenberg's hands were placed firmly on her cheeks, her eyes wide with anticipation. Sitting about five rows up in Section 104 at the Palestra for the Catholic League girls' basketball championship, Greenberg's rapt attention was on the game. With time winding down in the contest, the team she was rooting for - Archbishop Wood - held a slight lead, and Greenberg could barely contain herself. And so both hands were planted on her face. That is, until the final buzzer. After it sounded, a beaming Greenberg quickly appeared on the court celebrating the win with the Vikings - even getting in a few post-celebration pictures.

Odds are that people probably aren't going to notice Maureen O'Tormey on the basketball floor. She's fine with that. In fact, the PIAA basketball official thinks that means she is doing her job. "My goal is to be invisible on the court," O'Tormey said. "I don't want to draw attention to myself. " She isn't flashy. She doesn't over-gesticulate or highlight herself when she makes a call. No, O'Tormey simply goes about her business for 32 minutes of basketball - just like when she was a player at Lansdale Catholic.

For one bout, it seemed the entire crowd at the District 12 Class 3A tournament Saturday had chosen to root for the same side. Raucous cheers from teammates, fans, and coaches reverberated around the gymnasium at Archbishop Carroll High School for South Philadelphia's Miles Lee, who was competing in his first-ever district tournament. The junior transfer from Palumbo gave the Public League its most emphatic championship victory of the afternoon, a 6-3 decision in the 195-pound class over La Salle senior and three-time district champion Anthony Piscopo.

Just over 101/2 seconds remained on the scoreboard at the Palestra when Bailey Greenberg pulled down a rebound for the Archbishop Wood girls' basketball team. She was fouled as she turned to take the ball down the floor. When the clock stopped, the Vikings were up five points in the Catholic League championship to rival Neumann-Goretti. As Greenberg - a 5-foot-11 wing - made her way to the line, she didn't take her eyes off the scoreboard and breathed a visible sigh of relief. "I was just thinking, 'We did it, we won,' " said Greenberg, who scored 16 points.

Kamiah Smalls remembers the last time the Neumann-Goretti girls' basketball lost to a Catholic League opponent. It was Valentine's Day 2013. The Saints' opponent? Archbishop Carroll. The contest? A league quarterfinal. The score? 38-36, the Patriots winning on a buzzer-beating three-pointer. Back then, the guard was a freshman and Goretti was on the rise. Now Smalls is a James Madison recruit and the Saints have won 53 games in a row. The opponent was the same for the Saints on Tuesday night at Philadelphia University, but the stakes were higher.
