This year marked the 51st time the PIAA has awarded state championships to the best girls basketball teams in Pennsylvania.

The first championship was won by Allentown Central Catholic from District 11 in 1973. There were no champions crowned in 2020 due to the covid-19 outbreak.

While three districts hogged up all the state gold in the boys postseason this season, the girls showed a willingness to share and spread the wealth of a state championship.

Five districts earned a piece of the golden title pie in Hershey with only District 12 teams winning multiple PIAA championships.

Cardinal O’Hara won the 6A title while Archbishop Wood brought the 5A golden trophy back to Philadelphia.

The other four championships went to Blackhawk in 4A from District 7, Lancaster Catholic in 3A from District 3, Kennedy Catholic in 2A from District 10 and Bishop Guilfoyle from District 6 in Class A.

There were two repeats winner with the Golden Eagles flying high to a second straight state title in 2A and the Vikings earning a fourth consecutive PIAA championship in Class 5A.

All six teams ranked No. 1 in last week’s Trib HSSN state rankings remain in top after winning gold at the Giant Center.
