Alle-Kiski Valley high school notebook: Hack’s milestone part of strong season at Leechburg
Monday, December 25, 2017 | 11:15 PM
Christian Hack is having a strong senior season for the Leechburg boys basketball team, and he added a milestone to it last week.
Hack reached 1,000 career points in the Blue Devils' 63-60 loss Friday at Summit Academy. He scored 29 points in the losing effort.
A senior guard, Hack is averaging a team-high 21.7 points for Leechburg (5-2, 2-1 Section 1-2A). He was named MVP of the Leechburg tip-off tournament after leading the Blue Devils to the title.
We meet again
There's a fair amount of crossover between teams at tip-off and holiday tournaments, and at least one game this week will feature a rematch from earlier this season.
Valley's girls basketball team will host Springdale at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, the opening night of the Vikings' holiday tournament. The teams met on opening weekend at Springdale's tip-off tournament, with Valley winning 31-15.
This will be the third meeting in the past two seasons for the Dynamos and Vikings, who hold a 2-0 edge in the prior two games. Valley's last two victories came against Springdale.
Another rematch could materialize later this week at the Apollo Trust holiday tournament between the Apollo-Ridge and Leechburg boys. They played in the championship game of the Leechburg tip-off tournament with the host Blue Devils winning.
Ones go down
Friday wasn't a good night for Burrell and Kiski Area, the top-ranked teams in WPIAL Class AA and Class AAA wrestling, respectively.
The Bucs and Cavaliers dropped road nonsection matches to ranked Class AAA opponents, with Burrell falling to No. 3 Waynesburg, 36-31, and Kiski Area dropping its match to Canon-McMillan, 36-27.
