Editor's Voice: Two basketball landmarks

Posted

There were two noteworthy landmarks reached in Middletown Area High School basketball history recently. True, school isn’t just sports, but sports does teach important life lessons – sportsmanship and teamwork among them – and who doesn’t want to see local kids achieve in whatever they do, both in the classroom and on the court?

The Middletown girls’ basketball team won its first division title in team history on Tuesday, Jan. 28. The Blue Raiders beat Steelton-Highspire, 50-45, while second-place Susquenita lost to Camp Hill, giving Middletown (18-3) the Capital Division title in the Mid-Penn Conference. If you enjoy watching teamwork in action, you should take in a Raiders’ game – their spread offense, with its patient passing, is the epitome of it.

Just four days prior, the Middletown boys’ basketball team gave Coach Chris Sattele his 100th career victory when the Blue Raiders beat West Perry, 66-47. Seventy-two of those victories were earned by the Middletown basketball program, while the remaining 28 were earned during Sattele’s stint as coach of Northern York.

Congratulations to all.
