Can’t believe we are saying this, but the 2015-16 Pennsylvania high school basketball season is nearing the end of its regular season, with the beginning of district playoffs less than three weeks away.

This means the conference and league races around the area are heating up, as the contenders have separated themselves from the pack in the public and private school conferences.

Here’s Part 1 of a look around several of the area’s high school leagues with only a few games remaining on the schedule, beginning with the Catholic League, Central League and Ches-Mont League; Part 2, focused on the Inter-Ac, PAC-10 and Suburban One League, can be found here:

Central League
After narrowly escaping an upset bid from Haverford High (3-8), Ridley remains untouched at 12-0 in Central League play. The Raiders have put themselves in prime position to repeat as league champions if they can stay on this roll for a few more weeks. They have four more Central League games left for the season. Not too far behind them are Strath Haven (11-2), followed by Conestoga (9-3) and Lower Merion (9-3) who’s the fourth seed after losing to the Pioneers on Friday.
