Three girls’ basketball players reach national semifinals
Three Upper St. Clair students – Meredith Huzjak, Rylee Kalocay and Olivia Terlecki – are members of the Western Pennsylvania Bruins AAU basketball team that finished third in the national Run for the Roses Rising Stars tournament, which was held in July at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.
The team of fifth graders was undefeated in the tournament going into the semifinals where they lost to a team from Indiana. Rylee was named to the Roses Rising Stars 5th Grade All-Tournament Team for her performance. She scored more than 20 points in multiple games and was the leading rebounder.
The Bruins ended the season with a record of 46-3, winning several championships in several states.
Meredith, Rylee and Olivia began sixth grade at Boyce Middle School on Aug. 27.
