GIRLS BASKETBALL: Spring-Ford tops Cumberland Valley for state title

For Montgomery Media / JOHN STRICKLER Spring-Ford defeated Cumberland Valley to win the PIAA Class AAAA championship Friday in Hershey.
There was no yelling and screaming at halftime, just a request to play the type of Spring-Ford basketball that shot the Rams on a 23-game winning streak and into the PIAA Class AAAA final Friday evening in the Giant Center in Hershey.

The Rams responded.

And, boy (or girl), was there a whole lot of hooting and hollering afterward.

After leading by just two at the break, thanks to a buzzer-beating, three-point bomb by Maggie Locke to end the first half, the Rams turned up the tempo, tightened up its defense, and – as they have time and time and time again this memorable season – went on yet another break-out run in the third quarter en route to a 60-45 romp over Cumberland Valley for the state title.
