History

Season-by-Season Results

  • 2010-11 (13-10)
    The Lady Little Lions played another schedule that featured some of the state's best teams and improved as the season progressed. They lost in the District 6-AAAA championship game and eventually had their season ended with a PIAA Tournament play-in game loss to Bethel Park.
  • 2009-10 (18-7)
    The Lady Little Lions (18-7) earned their third consecutive District 6-AAAA championship with a victory against Hollidaysburg. They then advanced to the second round of the PIAA Tournament, capping another successful season as one of the final 16 teams remaining in the state playoffs in Class AAAA. Balance defined a season when the team thrived on stingy defense and never lost more than two games in a row.
  • 2008-09 (18-7)
    The Lady Little Lions advanced to the quarterfinals of the PIAA Tournament. A hard-fought 49-45 loss to eventual state champion Mt. Lebanon ended the season for the Lady Little Lions, but they reached the Elite Eight in Class AAAA for just the first time in six years. According to the Patriot-News in Harrisburg, State High finished as the state's sixth-ranked girls basketball team in Class AAAA.
  • 2007-08 (23-5)
    The team won the District 6 championship and reached the PIAA second round.
