2011-12 playoff results: Defeated Eisenhower 71-50 in the District 10 Class A quarterfinals before losing to West Middlesex 74-68 in overtime in the semifinals. VisionQuest then defeated Cochranton 67-44 in the third-place game. VisionQuest then defeated Northern Cambria 72-50 in the first round of the PIAA palyoffs and Vincentian Academy 68-61 in the second round. VisionQuest lost to Ridgway 58-51 in the PIAA quarterfinals.
Top players lost: Everyone

Assistant coaches: Tracy Walters, Ansel Locket, Brendan Flowers
Outlook: VisionQuest is in the same situation as George Junior. The Eagles’ roster changes every year and VisionQuest put together a terrific season last winter. The Eagles made a run in the PIAA playoffs and Darrian Brown was named to the all-state team. Coach Richard Gordon is looking for continued success every year on and off the court. He commented that he uses basketball as a tool to teach young men about life and the situations they could get into. For the Eagles, winning games isn’t as important as learning the game and lessons about life.
