Basketball

The Holy Ghost Prep varsity basketball team concluded its regular season with an overall record of 19 wins and 3 losses. The team captured the Independence Division title in the Bicentennial Athletic League (BAL). The BAL postseason tourney brought even more success as the Firebirds defeated four opponents over the course of six days, culminating in a thrilling 54-45 victory over The Christian Academy to capture the BAL postseason tournament.  Senior guard Tyler Mish recorded 39 points in the tourney semifinal against Dock Mennonite, one of the top offensive performances in HGP history.   

Holy Ghost Prep (24-4 record in 2019-20) was the No. 2 seed in the PIAA District Class 5A playoffs—behind only West Chester East. The Firebirds won their opening playoff game over Marple Newtown, but lost to Penn Wood in the second round of districts. The Firebirds, who will host sixth-seeded Strath Haven (16-9 record in 2019-20) in a PIAA District Class 5A playback game on Feb. 26 (winner qualifies for states; loser's season ends), are led by sweet-shooting senior guard Tyler Mish and senior big man Steve Cianci.
