York High graduate Aignee Freeland is headed to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight in women's basketball.
The 6-foot, 3-inch sophomore had 14 points and nine rebounds Monday night to help the Edinboro Fighting Scots defeat the Bloomsburg Huskies, 82-76, in the Atlantic Region Final at Glenville State University in West Virginia. Those totals matched her season averages. Freeland was 3-for-10 from the field and 8-for-9 from the free throw line.
The loss helped Edinboro avenge an 84-71 defeat to Bloomsburg earlier this season.
Two York County women saw action for the Huskies, but did not score — Red Lion grad Erica Maciejewski and York Catholic grad Morgan Klunk. Maciejewski is a 5-10 sophomore and Klunk is a 5-9 freshman.
Edinboro, which has won 11 straight, improved to 27-5, while Bloomsburg finished at 26-5. Edinboro came in ranked No. 25 in Division II, while Bloomsburg was ranked No. 14.
The Scots will now get to play near home in the quarterfinals at 6 p.m. Tuesday, March 25. That game is set for Erie, which is less than 20 miles from Edinboro. The Scots will face either No. 18 Cal Poly Pomona or unranked Montana State-Billings in the Elite Eight.
