GIRLS BASKETBALL: Steelton-Highspire speeds past Jenkintown

Jenkintown had one of the better seasons in recent Lady Drakes’ history, but a deep run into the state tournament was not in the cards for Jim Romano’s crew.

Steelton-Highspire essentially led wire to wire in a 74-39 win over Jenkintown in the PIAA Class A second round at Garden Spot High School. The Lady Rollers’ transition game and physical play proved too much for the Lady Drakes from the opening tip-off and although they played better as the game went on, it was never close.

“We knew going in the first quarter was going to show us where we were at in the game,” Romano said. “Steel-High is a very experienced team and this is our first time here in a while and these girls first time here. The first quarter was definitely a telling time in the game.”
