Berks Catholic's Ryan Koch talks with SV Sports after District Championship

Berks Catholic wanted to set the tone early against Fleetwood in the District 3-4A Championship. Jack Miller helped the Saints march out to a 17-7 advantage after splashing a pair of 3-pointers in the opening quarter. Miller, a 5'10 senior, finished with 17 points and five treys. "That's our sniper, 'Logo' we call him. The deep ball was flying," noted Ryan Koch. Top-seeded Berks Catholic rolled to its second straight District 3 title and fifth in twelve years. The Saints hit eleven triples and blew out the second-seeded Tigers 73-44. Koch scored a team-high 20 points. The Pitt-Johnstown commit sank four 3-pointers. JayJay Jordan was also in double figures with 16. The senior point guard is the school's all-time leading scorer with 1,197 points. The McKoy brothers, Josh and Kingston, combined for 14 points. "You never know when your last game is gonna be so [we're] coming closer as a team and playing for each other. You always say we versus me," said Koch. Berks Catholic improved to (23-4). Koch is closing in on 1,000 career points. He will enter the state playoffs with 982. The 6'3 wing enjoyed another trip to the Giant Center. "This is what you dream for as a kid, to play in big arenas. Winning a title in here is always insane," remarked Koch. He had fun comparing this year's squad to last year's team with Paul Roberts of SV Sports.
