Harrisburg, Pennsbury, Prep Charter to headline 2007-08 non-league schedule

Back to News List | Posted on Jun 6th, 2007

For a program that regularly plays one of the toughest schedules in the state, the Aces have truly stacked the deck for 2007-08. Next season promises to be one of the most exciting and challenging to date with a roster of non-league opponents that include perennial state powers Harrisburg, Prep Charter, Pennsbury and Hazelton. During winter break, the Aces will travel to Delaware for the Bay Ball Classic, which features some of the top competition in the Mid-Atlantic region. And it doesn’t get any easier in league play, with the Central League returning four teams that reached the state playoffs last year. The Aces conclude the regular season with a showdown against one of those teams – Ridley -- at Villanova on February 2nd.

Road trips will be on the docket for Aces Nation - the only non-league opponent to visit the Main Gym during the regular season is Prep Charter (12/15), the 2007 PA AA State Champs. The opener at the Bay Ball Classic at Rehoboth, DE (12/28) features a match-up against Pennsbury, the defending Suburban One champs. Harrisburg, who reached the State Final Four for the third consecutive year in 2007, hosts the Aces on 1/12. Parkland is the venue for an intriguing neutral-site contest against Hazelton, the 2007 District 2 Champion on 1/27.

Even the preseason is a “can’t-miss,” with contests at District 11 power Emmaus (11/17) and home against Catholic League juggernaut St. John Neumann (11/27). The Aces’ first regular season game is the Central League opener at Springfield (12/6).
