St. Charles East, Geneva girls hoops win, will play for regional championship
ST. CHARLES – St. Charles East girls basketball fans shifted into show-and-tell mode Tuesday night, presenting a Laney Deckrow cardboard headshot and a “No Dogs Allowed In the Hilton” sign to two of their muses.
Deckrow and point guard Amanda Hilton weren’t the only ones flattered after the Saints handled Batavia, 59-40, in the nightcap of a semifinal doubleheader at the 4A St. Charles East Regional. No Saint or East partisan was in a hurry to scatter to the locker room, home, or any other destination as the hosts darted past the Bulldogs for the second time in 16 days.
East (18-11) advanced to face Geneva in the regional final at 7:30 p.m. Thursday after the Vikings defeated Glenbard East, 54-39, in the opening semifinal. East and Geneva split a pair of overtime games in Upstate Eight Conference River Division play this season, and it’s the Saints’ intention to practice the same postgame protocol Thursday as they did against the Bulldogs.
