Dunmore girls basketball team denied appeal; will compete in Class 4-A for next two years

High School Sports

The Dunmore Lady Bucks basketball team will move up one classifcation, from 3-A to 4-A, as determined by a 23-6 vote from the PIAA board of directors on Wednesday.

Dunmore had appealed the initial decision to move up the girls basketball program based on a new competition formula. That formula is two-fold — at least one player must have transferred into the program, and the team must have earned at least six competition points over a two-year span.

According to, Dunmore in fact had two transfers come into the program recently, and the team earned exactly six competition points in two years. They earned four for a trip to the 2019 state championship, and two for a berth in the state quarterfinals this year, despite the remainder of the postseason being canceled.

For the next two years, Dunmore girls basketball will compete at the Class 4-A level.
