Brentwood teams to start season in annual tip-off tournament
The Brentwood High Athletic Boosters' annual tip-off basketball tournament will take place Dec. 6 and 7, and will be a boys' and girls' event held at the high school and middle school gyms again this year.
Brentwood, Carrick, South Park and Steel Valley will compete for the boys' championship, while Brentwood, Carrick, Avonworth and Brashear will vie for the girls' championship.
The first-round schedule is as follows:
• At 6 p.m., the Brentwood and Carrick girls will play in the high school gym; the South Park and Steel Valley boys will play in the middle school gym.
• At 8 p.m., the Brentwood and Carrick boys will play in the high school gym; the Brashear and Avonworth girls will play in the middle school gym.
The following day, the girls' consolation game will be held at 1 p.m., followed by the boys' consolation game at 3 p.m.
The girls' championship game will take place at 5 p.m., followed by the boys' championship game at 7 p.m.
Both the boys' and girls' consolation and championship rounds will be held in the high school gym.
The Brentwood boys' team lost gut-wrenching decisions to South Park, 51-10, and Meadville, 46-44, in the past two championship games.
Avonworth has won the girls' championship trophy for nine consecutive seasons.
The Lady Antelopes edged the Brentwood girls in last year's finals, 44-42. The Lady Spartans defeated Carrick, 45-38, in the opening round.
Two Brentwood girls — Laura McGowan, as a junior forward, and Alecia Folino, as a freshman guard — were selected to the all-tournament team last season.
Tickets for this year's event will be available at the door at a cost of $5 for adults and $3 for students.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments â either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
