The Bishop Canevin Girls Basketball team received a #2 seed and a first round bye in the 2020 WPIAL Class AA Playoffs, as pairings were announced tonight at the Greentree Doubletree Hotel. This is the first time since 2016 that the Crusaders have not been the #1 seed in the WPIAL playoffs. The girls won the first of three straight WPIAL championships that year.
Canevin will play in the WPIAL Class AA Quarterfinals on Thursday, February 20. The time and location of the game will be announced after the first round games have been played. The 2nd seeded Crusaders will face the winner of the Friday, February 14 game between the #7 Burgettstown Blue Devils and the #10 Riverview Raiders. That game is being played at Northgate High School. A Canevin win in the WPIAL Quarterfinals will secure a berth in the PIAA Class AA State Championship Tournament for the 11th straight season. The girls won the 2013 PIAA Class AA State Championship, and were State Runners-Up in 2017 and 2018
The Bishop Canevin girls finished the regular season with an overall record of 16-6. They won their fourth straight unbeaten WPIAL Section Championship. The girls won three straight WPIAL Championships from 2016-18. Last season, they fell Girls OLSH in the WPIAL Semifinals.
