The Aces and Cougars have already battled to the wire three times this year, splitting games in the regular season series, and facing each other in District play (in a game won by Lower Merion 57-50 at Springfield). The Aces advanced to the District Finals, while the Cougars earned their State seeding by winning two games in the consolation bracket.

All Aces fans are encouraged to wear maroon to the game - a limited number of maroon Aces Nation t-shirts are available for $5 in the athletic office. Wednesday is a huge night and we need your support! Thanks for all of your emails and words of encouragement to date. If you would like to send a message to the team to be posted in the locker room on Wednesday, please sign our guestbook. The team definitely appreciates it!!
