Gettysburg boys finish off perfect regular basketball season

Gettysburg Warriors

The Gettysburg High School boys' basketball team finished off an historic regular season on Wednesday night with an 82-39 pounding of visiting Greencastle-Antrim in a nonleague contest.

Quadir Copeland led Gettysburg with 19 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists. Zach Ketterman (14 points, seven rebounds, five assists), Charles Warren (15 points) and Trent Ramirez-Keller (13 points) also excelled for the Warriors.

The Warriors ended the regular season at 22-0. It's the program's first unbeaten regular season since the 1967-68 campaign. Gettysburg is also just one win shy of the school record for wins, set by the 23-2 team in 1974-75.

Greencastle dropped to 3-18.

Gettysburg will now take its perfect record into the postseason, starting with the Y-A playoffs. In its league quarterfinal opener at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at West York, the Warriors will face York High, the third-place team from D-I. The Bearcats are the defending league champions.

Gettysburg is coming off its first-ever Y-A division title, compiling 12-0 mark in D-II. That marked the first time the Warriors went unbeaten in division play since 1992-93.

After the league playoffs, Gettysburg will enter the District 3 Class 5-A playoffs, almost certainly as the No. 1 seed. The Warriors are No. 1 in the latest district 5-A power ratings. Gettysburg has not made a District 3 title game since the 1967-68 team.

Gettysburg was ranked No. 7 in the state in 5-A in the latest Trib/HSSN poll.
