HERMON - There were several No. 1 seeds up for grabs Tuesday night, but the one in Class B North girls basketball would be at the mercy of a winner-takes-all contest.

 

The Hermon Hawks kept arm's distance from the original No. 1 John Bapst at the Cross Insurance Center, using a 47-41 win to take the top seed in a parity-filled class heading into the state tournament.
