A pair of 20-win NEPA Elite girls teams landed high seeds when The Hoop Group announced the seeds for Championship Weekend July 21-24 at the Convention Center in Atlantic City.
The NEPA Elite 15U Scoblick team is the second seed while the 16U Rini team is the third seed, each for 16-team brackets.
Seeding was determined by performance in Hoop Group Showcase League games, in conjunction with Hoop Group events, throughout the season.
The Scoblick team went 22-8 overall through its seven events during the season, winning 9 of 10 at the start and 8 straight going into the HGSL Championships.
The Rini team is 20-9.
Both are coming off pool victories July 7-10 in The Hoop Group’s Jersey Shore Live at Sportika in Manalapan, N.J.
The Scoblick team is seeded behind only the New Jersey Shoreshots at 15U.
In 16U, the Rini team is seeded behind the Albany Capitals and New Jersey Soldiers.
This is the fourth season of HGSL play for girls. NEPA Elite won the first two 17U HGSL championships and played in the championship game last season. It did not qualify for the 24-team 17U bracket this season.
