PREP ROUNDUP, WEDNESDAY, JAN. 29: Gettysburg boys stay perfect, wrap up division title
The Gettysburg Warriors' perfect season now includes an outright division championship.
The Warriors sewed up the York-Adams League Division II crown on Wednesday night with a 66-60 win over visiting York Suburban.
Gettysburg is now 18-0 overall and 11-0 in D-II. Second-place Suburban fell to 14-5 and 8-3. It's Gettysburg's first-division title since 2013 when the Warriors were in the Mid-Penn Conference. It's the Warriors' first boys' basketball division crown in the Y-A League.
The Warriors were ranked No. 7 in the state in Class 5-A in the latest Sunbury Daily Item poll. They are also No. 1 in the District 3 5-A power ratings.
The win was Gettysburg's sixth victory this season by six points or fewer.
Charles Warren led Gettysburg with 20 points, while Quadir Copeland added 18 points, 14 rebounds and five assists. Warren needs 17 points to reach 1,000 for his career. Zach Ketterman added 11 points and eight rebounds for Gettysburg, while Mike Hankey had 10 points.
Cam Brewer (19), Aidan Hughley (18) and Anthony Brown (11) combined for 48 of Suburban's 60 points.
The Warriors will try to finish off an unbeaten division season on Friday when it plays host to Kennard-Dale (6-13, 2-8). Gettysburg hasn't had an unbeaten division season since 1993 in the Mid-Penn Conference.
