Then there's the height. That's the second thing you can't miss. The Saints have six players 5-foot-11 or taller, with 6-5 Christina Aborowa and 6-9 Felicia Aiyeotan providing the exclamation point. Plenty of teams wear flashy sneakers. Fewer have the kind of height the Saints possess.

JOHN MOSCO waited patiently as his point guard fielded questions just outside of Archbishop Wood's makeshift locker room. The second-year coach hadn't yet addressed his victorious Vikings, but his court marshal was snatched for an interview ahead of time. Eyeballing his affable coach, Tom Funk flashed a giant grin when Mosco was asked if he needed the 6-0 junior. "Nah, [I'm waiting on him]," Mosco joked as assistant coaches also laughed.

HERSHEY - When the tricky stuff didn't work, Archbishop Wood did what it has done best all season. After Central Valley senior Brandon Wilson returned an interception 48 yards for a touchdown to end the half, the Vikings punished the Warriors on the ground the rest of the way. Not a bad plan when Jarrett McClenton and Alex Arcangeli occupy your backfield and you have serious strength up front. Add a physical defensive effort and you get the recipe Wood used to claim its third Class AAA championship in four seasons with a 33-14 win over Central Valley.
