Penquis Valley Lady Patriots

MILO The top-seeded Lady Pats were scheduled to open post season play against eighth ranked PCHS Tuesday night. The Lady Pirates withdrew from the post season play, giving Penquis Valley a bye to the semifinal round at the Bangor Auditorium.

Finishing first in Class C, Northeastern Division, the Lady Pats ended the regular season with a record of 16-2.

"I think we'll probably get either George Stevens or Narraguagus, whoever wins that prelim," said Coach Wally Russell.

I think Narraguagus has lost four games," he said."

GSA has a player that is 6-feet, 6-inches tall. "I'm sure what they would try to do is get it up the court and get it that big girl so we'll have to press," Russell said.

"We played Narraguagus a couple of years back. They have some of the same players. They will try to press us and try to run," Russell said.

Penquis opened this season with 10 returning players, including Megan Russell who scored her 1,000th point in January.

The Lady Patriots went to the Eastern Maine Class C Tournament last year seeded secont with a season record of 16-2. They beat the Dexter Tibers in the quarterfinal round and went on to be eliminated in the semifinals.
