The Trinity Shamrocks got close to their seventh state final while the Lancaster Mennonite Blazers are one win away from their first-ever state title.

LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. — The semifinals of the the PIAA championships featured two more teams from District III. 

The Trinity Shamrocks returned to Governor Mifflin, where they escaped with a 1 point victory. Tuesday night against West Catholic the Shamrocks came close, but a final drive by Owen Schlager bounced off the rim and landed in the hands of West Catholic. 

The star Zion Stanford nailed two free throws to give the Burrs a 2 point lead. One last desperation heave from Trinity didn't work as they fell from the state semifinals in the last seconds, 52-49.
