Girls Basketball league titles on the line this weekend

The girls’ basketball postseason tips off this weekend but several Chagrin Valley Conference teams are focused on a more immediate goal as two league titles remain contested.

One of those league titles will be decided on Saturday when Hawken hosts Perry in a crossover game. The other, the Metro Division title, might take a little more time to sort out.

Perry is playing at Hawken on Saturday with its sixth straight league title already secured. The Pirates are 11-1 in league play and easily clinched the Lake Division title. Geneva finished in second place with a 7-6 conference mark.

Hawken needs a win over the Pirates on Saturday to clinch the Chagrin Division title outright. A loss would force the Hawks to share the league title with West Geauga, who closed out the season with an 11-2 league record while Hawken is 10-1. The two teams split their season series.

Kirtland locked up the Valley Division title with a 12-3 conference record. The Hornets have one conference game left to play—a crossover contest against Brooklyn on Monday—but already clinched the division title as second-place Berkshire finished league play with a 9-7 record.

Trinity controls its own destiny in the Metro Division while Cuyahoga Heights is waiting to pounce on an opportunity to steal the conference title from the Trojans.

Heights closed out league play with a 14-2 record but both losses came to Trinity, meaning the Trojans need just one win in their next two conference games to secure its championship.

The Trojans can clinch the title on Thursday with a win over visiting Brooklyn, who upset the Trojans earlier this season, or on Monday at Grand Valley.
