Chester vs. Lower Merion


The Daily Times staff is here in Happy Valley, and in full force.

Matt Smith, Jack McCaffery and I will be live-chatting throughout Chester's PIAA Class AAAA championship game against Lower Merion. Follow the live-chat here, beginning at 7:45 p.m. And Eric Hartline will be here chronicling the game in photo.

Here's our preview coverage of tonight's tilt:
Chester seeks perfection, back-to-back titles (Vito): Never has Chester finished the year unbeaten, nor have the Clippers won back-to-back titles. This is the Clippers' chance to do just that.
Chester hopes not to let history repeat itself (Toohey): Forty-five years ago, Chester had an undefeated team reach the state final ... and lose. Two from that 1967 team say how these Clippers can prevent that from happening this time around.

See you from the Bryce Jordan Center.
