The Bishop Guilfoyle Catholic and Hollidaysburg girls are sticking together during their runs through the PIAA high school girls basketball playoffs.
The Lady Marauders and Lady Tigers will be playing as part of a second round doubleheader on Wednesday night at Indiana University of Pennsylvania's Memorial Field House against opponents from the Pittsburgh area, the PIAA announced on this afternoon.
Guilfoyle and Hollidaysburg, the respective District 6 champions in Class A and Class AAA, comprised the first two-thirds of a doubleheader at the Altoona Area High School Fieldhouse on Saturday.
The Lady Marauders will tip things off at 6 p.m. against Fort Cherry in the rematch of a very competitive game from last year's PIAA tournament. Both teams are 24-2.
