Chartiers Valley’s Perri Page is in a New York City state of mind.

The daughter of former Pitt men’s basketball standout Julius Page committed Friday to continue her basketball career at Columbia in Manhattan. She announced her decision on Twitter.

Page, a 5-foot-11 junior forward, had numerous Division I offers, including Duquesne, St. Bonaventure, Lafayette and Boston.

Columbia joined Page’s official decision process in late September when she received an offer from the Lions.

Page hopes to help keep up the success at Chartiers Valley. In her first two varsity seasons, the Colts didn’t lose a game and went a combined 57-0 with back-to-back WPIAL championships.

Chartiers Valley, the top-ranked Class 5A team in the WPIAL and the state, is 1-0 this season with a 59-48 nonsection victory over Baldwin on Dec. 11, one day before the shutdown of high school sports in Pennsylvania ordered by Gov. Tom Wolf as part of mitigation efforts to slow the covid-19 spread.

In that game, Page led all scorers with 19 points and 11 rebounds.

Page joins Colts teammate Aislin Malcolm with a Division I commitment. Malcolm, a 5-10 junior guard, committed to Pitt on Dec. 2, selecting the Panthers over schools such as Penn State, West Virginia and Duke.
