The Pennsylvania House of Representatives this week recognized the SS. John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School girls’ and boys’ basketball teams for their recent winning seasons.
The boys’ team captured the state Class AAA basketball championship, previously winning the Catholic League championship, the sixth consecutive title for the team.
The girls’ team also won the Catholic League title and advanced the final of the state Class AA championship.
State Reps. Bill Keller and Maria Donatucci welcomed the teams to the state Capitol Monday, April 28 and presented the young athletes and their coaches with House citations to commemorate their 2013-14 victories.
Keller spoke about both teams’ accomplishments in the House chamber during legislative session Monday.
