That's because Mahanoy Area is coached by Mickey Holland, who is in his 32nd season and has won 591 games. He is being opposed by Lions coach John Donmoyer, who is in his 39th season and has won 612 games. That's 71 seasons and 1,203 wins between them.
Oh, the stories these two guys could tell.
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
It was a difficult year for Allen coach Doug Snyder.
He told Mike Blouse, who covered the game for The Morning Call, after Wednesday's loss to Easton: "I don't know how many starting lineups we had … I'm guessing 10 different ones in 23 games. There were some kids who were disciplined, some who were dismissed, some who quit, some injuries and some other things. It was a roller-coaster. But we won two big games at the end of the season to qualify for districts and I give the kids a lot of credit for that."
The future looks brighter for the Canaries with 12 of the 15 kids on Allen's final roster being underclassmen.
The 11th annual Perryman-Keglovits Senior High School All-Star Basketball Classic is set for East Stroudsburg University on March 25. Monroe County's best will be on display in two games.
Every year, this event spotlights Arthur Perryman and Al Keglovits, who enhanced area high school basketball but lost their lives way too soon because of cancer. This year the focus is on the fight against childhood cancer. Proceeds from the event go to the Dale and Frances Hughes Cancer Center, The Jimmy V Foundation and Joey's Eagles.
