'Canes capture third straight WPIAL title!

NEW CASTLE — Three-peat.

Triple Crown.

Trey cool.

Call it what you want, but you can call the 'Canes WPIAL champions — again.

With a 55-49 victory over Hampton on Saturday night, the New Castle High basketball team captured its third straight WPIAL title. It's the school's 10th overall since 1982.

It was Ne-Ca-Hi's eighth straight victory over their section rivals, including the past three in district title games.

Top-seeded New Castle knocked off the second-seeded Talbots 68-53 last year for the title and 57-44 in 2012 for the crown.

Look for complete coverage on Monday in print and on The Bounce, including a special photo gallery from Tiffany Wolfe and behind-the-scenes video from Chris DeVivo.
