PAISSA BASKETBALL: GA topples nationally-ranked Kiski School for state title

There aren’t many times that you can get a coach to admit that he lied for most of the postseason. But Germantown Academy coach Jim Fenerty pulled the mea culpa Saturday night.

“I kept lying to people for the last week that the most important thing was for us to win the Inter-Ac (League),” Fenerty said. “I wasn’t lying because it’s still true, but this is sure nice icing on the cake.”

The icing came in the form of a 53-47 victory over western Pennsylvania’s Kiski School in the PAISSA Championship game at Malvern Prep. The Cougars had been ranked as the number two prep school in nation by MaxPreps, but GA battled basket for basket until scoring 13 of the last 17 points in the fourth quarter, including key foul shots by Greg Dotson and Julian Moore, to claim the private school state championship.
