The Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster LL League Basketball playoffs get underway this week!
With one more regular season date yet to play, here’s what we know:
Section 1 Champion: Cedar Crest
Section 1 Runner Up: McCaskey
Section 2 Champion: Warwick
Section 2 Runner Up: Elizabethtown
Section 3 Champion: Lampeter-Strasburg
Section 3 Runner Up: Cocalico

What about Section 4? ELCO (10-2) is at Lancaster Catholic (11-1) on Tuesday 2/4 for the last regular season league game with the section title on the line. If Lancaster Catholic wins, the Crusaders are the Section 4 Champion and ELCO the Runner Up. If ELCO wins that will mean a tie for the Section 4 Championship, and by league rules a tiebreaker game will be needed. That tiebreaker game would be played Wednesday 2/5 at Warwick at 7:00 p.m.
The girls side section champions are all decided, but if you like deep dives on runner up tiebreaker rules, this is the place!
