Hoop heroes: Presenting the 2022-23 All-Main Line girls basketball teams

The Main Line high school girls’ basketball scene featured a number of strong teams this past winter, particularly at PIAA 6A state champion Archbishop Carroll and Haverford High (27-2 overall, PIAA District 1 6A runnerup, 16-0 in Central League – league champions).
Villa Maria Academy (24-5) was AACA champion and District 1 5A runnerup. Other top teams included Conestoga (22-8), Academy of Notre Dame (17-11 overall, 9-3 InterAc, tied for second), Sacred Heart Academy (15-10, advanced to PIAA 2A state quarterfinals for first time) Radnor (15-10), Friends’ Central (24-7), Shipley (15-8) and Barrack Hebrew Academy (21-8, undefeated in the Penn Jersey League).
The All-Main Line high school girls’ basketball teams are selected by the coaches. Because Main Line Media News covers 19 high schools, the Main Line Media News sports staff limits the number of sports available to first team, second team and honorable mention – but follows the priority of the coaches’ selections.
