It’s been another great year for high school basketball in Delaware County! Over 400 games played among 23 high schools (and that’s just the boy’s).
No less than 14 teams (8 girls and 6 boys) qualified for the PIAA Championship playoffs and three made it to the final game in Hershey. We haven’t checked it out but we suspect no other county in Pennsylvania can make such a claim!
We broadcast 19 games on our Game-of-the-Week series. Eight of those games were PIAA playoffs and two were Central League Championship games. We had almost 2,000 listeners and our web page saw more than 140,000 hits.
A special thank-you to our crew; Dave Burman, our play-by-play broadcaster who always calls a great game with enthusiasm and knowledge far exceeding anyone else we have ever met. Pete Fulginiti, who handles certain stats to share with our listening audience during the broadcasts along with keen basketball observations. Andrew Kaufman, our newest member of the crew who collected game stats, prepared for game interviews, set-up and packed up our booth for every broadcast and created and operated our new Twitter account. A special thank-you to Mark Jordan, who comes to us for playoffs, and is a tremendous addition to our color crew. If somebody knows more about high school basketball we have yet to meet them!
Our annual budget is well over $3000 per season and all of our support comes from local businesses. If you would like to “join in the fun” for the 2019/20 basketball season please drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you all in December 2019!
