ROCKED AND ROLLED: Rollers stun Bishop McDevitt, win District 3 title

webdrive3 4 15

It was stunning. Nothing in sports is impossible, perhaps, but the outcome was unlikely. Very unlikely.

Simply because of the size of the schools, for one thing. Steelton-Highspire is a small school that moved up to Class AAA in boys' basketball to compete on a higher level – and that's where it found itself, playing private school power Bishop McDevitt for the District 3 Class AAA championship on Thursday, Feb. 26 on a basketball court inside the Giant Center.

And even if size doesn't dictate the amount of desire, history was another thing: The Rollers had lost twice to Bishop McDevitt earlier in the season, the last defeat a 65-45 thumping in early February in which the Crusaders (20-5) overpowered Steel-High with a tremendous second half.
