The Eastern York girls' basketball team got the Brad Weaver era started on the right foot, winning the Spring Grove tip-off tournament by knocking off Carlisle 55-36 on Saturday.

Weaver, who's in his first year coaching girls' basketball at Eastern, admitted being nervous in his debut Friday night and added his team had some pre-game jitters as well. With that being said, the Golden Knights stayed collected to knock off Spring Grove 43-37, then recorded the 19-point win over Carlisle on Saturday to claim the crown.

"This team is very young," Weaver said. "We have some freshmen and a lot of sophomores. But we kept it together."

He then added about Saturday's victory: "Not only did we win, we won by 19 points. Considering how early in the season it is, it was surprising how well they played and executed the gameplan."

Cassidy Arnold scored 19 points in Saturday's win and was named tournament MVP. Hannah Myers, who was named to the All-Tournament first team, added 14 points in the title contest.

The Golden Knights will take the floor again Tuesday at Northeastern.
