This season marked the end of an era for some WPIAL girls basketball programs or maybe just the beginning for others.

Among them, Chartiers Valley says goodbye to a talented senior class that lost just seven games in four years. They were among four WPIAL girls teams to reach the state finals this winter, but that’s nothing new for the Colts. The only time CV didn’t reach Hershey was when the 2020 tournament has canceled in the early days of the pandemic.

The TribLive HSSN Terrific 10 girls basketball all-stars feature six seniors who finished off remarkable careers.

Yet, the list also includes two juniors who played starring roles in winning WPIAL titles this season, and two sophomores who were among the league’s top scorers.
