Winter Sports Update
The UHS Girls Basketball team has had a historic season! The team qualified for the Ches Mont Final Four for the first time in school history! They also qualified for PIAA Tournament for the first time since 2001 and will compete in their first PIAA Playoff game on March 10. The last time the girls were in the PIAA tournament, assistant coach Christina Halloway was a player on the UHS team!
The UHS Boys Basketball team is also having an incredible season! They finished as the Ches Mont Tournament Runners Up and played in the District Final on March 4 against Radnor, who ended up taking home the District title. This was the first time the Unionville team made it to this game since 2006. Additionally, the team qualified for the PIAA Tournament and will have their first PIAA Playoff game on March 10 at Home.
Not only are their teams having exceptional seasons, but this year we celebrated milestones for both our head coaches. Girls Coach Fred Ellzy won his 100th game at the helm of the Unionville Girls Basketball Program this year on January 7. Combined with his previous wins at Coatesville HS, he has over 150 in his head coaching career. Boys Coach Chris Cowles won his 100th game in his coaching career (including his wins at WC East) on January 31.
Be sure to come out and support both teams on their continued success this season!
