                                     Roman Catholic . . .
                       2022 PIAA Class 6A State Champs!

  On March 26, at Hershey's Giant Center, in a battle of Catholic League powers, Roman beat Archbishop Wood, 77-65, to win the Class 6A title and give the CL its third crown of the weekend (also Neumann-Goretti in 4A and Devon Prep in 3A.
  Coach Chris McNesby, back in charge after a five-year break, earned his third state championship (also 2015 and '16) and lifted his overall record to 192-60 over nine seasons.
  Daniel Skillings, at times powerful and at other times slinky, contributed 31 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and three blocks. He also nailed his last nine shots from the floor and his point total was two short of the CL record for state championship games. Xzayvier Brown added 16 points (8-for-8 at line) and 10 rebounds while sixth-man frosh Shareef Jackson (his dad, Marc, is a '93 Roman grad and former NBA player), mixed 11 points with 10 boards and five assists.
  For Wood, Justin Moore was terrific with 21 points and 10 assists.
