MC Girls Playoff Bound
Feb. 4, 2017
MC's Rylie Rittenhouse scores bucket over CD East's Jessica Rawls.
HARRISBURG - For the Mifflin County girls, Friday's win was the ultimate "and-1."
Eleana Eckley scored 22 points, Rylie Rittenhouse was right behind her with 21 and the Huskies were winners by a 66-58 margin over Central Dauphin East.
The Mid-Penn Commonwealth win was crucial because it was the 11th for the squad, which under the school's postseason policy makes the team playoff eligible. Mifflin County already was the No. 1 team in the Districts 6-8-10 subregion heading into Friday's action.
"I just really feel happy for these kids more than anything else," Huskies coach Roger Herto said. "For three years we've heard, 'We need one more win.'
"If anybody in the Mid-Penn would have said a year ago Mifflin County is going to sweep CD East I don't think anybody would have believed it."
Believe it. Mifflin County dominated the Panthers in the first half, putting up 21 second-quarter points on the way to a 31-23 advantage at the break. The Huskies hit 20 again in the fourth. Herto was quick to note the defensive contribution as well.
"You just can't say enough about the effort they showed on the glass," he said. "There's no question it's a big win for our organization."
Mifflin County travels to Carlisle Monday before closing out against a pair of District 6 opponents.
