Westinghouse led for only 1.6 seconds, but that was the only time that counted as the Bulldogs won the girls' City League title for the second consecutive season in a 52-51 thriller against Schenley tonight at the Palumbo Center.

"What a game," said a grinning Westinghouse coach Phyllis Jones.

"You always want a championship game to be like this," Spartans coach Debbie Lewis said."

The Bulldogs' 6-foot-6 star, Shawnice Wilson, a Pitt recruit, hit the winning free throw - the front end of a 1-and-1 - to break the game's first tie since 2-2.

"I let it go," said Wilson, who had 11 points, "and I told myself it was going in."

Aquana Diggs and Shalonda WIlson each had 14 points to lead Westinghouse, which has won 19 in a row.

Junior Markel Walker, another Pitt recruit, had 15 points to lead all scorers for the Spartans (22-4), who entered the game having won 14 of their past 15.
