The New Oxford boys' basketball beat Waynesboro, 62-52, on Thursday to stay alive in the District 3 Class 5A tournament ninth-place bracket, which will send the top two finishers to the state tournament. 

The Colonials will take on Shippensburg in the ninth-place semifinal at 5 p.m. Monday at East Pennsboro. The winner will earn a spot in the state tournament. 

Dover, however, saw its season come to an end in that same consolation bracket. The Eagles lost to Garden Spot, 65-43, ending their season with a 14-11 record.
