As unbeaten WPIAL boys teams are dropping like flies, the only undefeated girls team continues to shine.

Dating to the start of the 2021-22 season, the Cougars are 39-1 in their past 40 games.

Alena Fusetti and Quinn Borroni were two of the standouts Monday. Fusetti finished with 15 points and 6 rebounds. Borroni had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Kassie Potts added 9 points.

Chloe List scored a team-high 14 points for Beaver, which was handed its most-lopsided loss this season. Its other three losses were by a combined 15 points.
