On Thursday night, the varsity Trojanettes suffered a hard loss against Scranton Prep in the PIAA District 2 Class 4A Championship game at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

Fans came from all around to see our Trojanettes in action yet again at the Arena for a gold medal, but this time around, things didn’t go in the favor of our girls; however, all members of this close-knit family of a team kept their heads high, knowing they still had a shot to send a ripple into the state competition.

Aside from the final scoreline, junior Alyssa Lewis finished the emotional roller coaster of a game with 12 points, just shy of half of the entire team’s points.

Coach Yendrzeiwski and starting point-guard Alyssa Lewis agreed that Thursday night’s game simply got away from them towards the end of the game, in an interview conducted by The Times Leader.

Your Trojanettes will begin their state playoff run on Saturday, March 12, against Danville at Wilkes University, with a tip-off at 3 PM.

The GNA Insider Staff would like to send a huge thank you out to Coach Bart and PIAA for providing Editors EJ Gill and Aaron Miller the opportunity to report Thursday night’s game at the Mohegan Sun Arena from the game floor. It was a massive chance to experience the real world of sports journalism and we are forever grateful.
