COLLEGE PARK – Senior guard Mitch Czworka went for the pass, down 59-56 with a few seconds on the clock, in hopes of nabbing the championship for the Quince Orchard.

“We’ll look back and reflect, and it’ll be a great season in the end, but right now I’m just really disappointed we didn’t get the last one,” said senior Cougars forward Johnny Fierstein.
