Everything you missed in high school sports — and isn’t listed elsewhere in the CDT — from Wednesday:
SJCA gets win over State College
STATE COLLEGE St. Joseph’s may not have had the size advantage, but the small school still came away with a memorable boys’ golf win Wednesday.
In a match that brought eight golfers and took the scores from the top 6, the Wolves cruised past State College by a score of 524 to 560.
St. Joseph’s Jack Mangene paced all golfers by finishing more than 10 strokes better than the runner-up. He carded a 75 at Toftrees, while the Little Lions’ Ryan Battista finished second overall with an 86.
“Jack’s 75 on a course like Toftrees is a feat that everyone will point to, and rightfully so, but the whole team really played the course well and worked hard to score for each other,” SJCA athletic director Chad Walsh said. “It was a good day, and I can’t wait to see what sort of confidence boost it gives us, heading into the last few weeks of the regular season.”
Sophie Mochan contributed to the Wolves with an 87, while Matt Steyers and Ryan Peachey also scored 88s. R.J. Marsh had an 89, and Adam Kurtz rounded out the Wolves’ top 6 with a 97. For State College, Matt Tomczuk and Kyle Snyder both recorded 88s but were the only other Little Lions to crack 90.
BEA shuts out Huntingdon
WINGATE The Eagles’ Jared Gettig paced his team Wednesday with a hat trick — by scoring three consecutive goals over a span of 36 minutes — as the local squad cruised past Huntingdon 4-0.
“Jared, he just played a good game,” BEA coach Jason Bair said. “But he didn’t do it by himself. His teammates set him up.”
BEA goalkeeper Hunter Etters needed to make just two saves to preserve the shutout.
Garrett Giedroc scored the final goal for Bald Eagle Area, at the 69:44 mark.
BEA will next take on Philipsburg-Osceola at 10 a.m. Saturday.
PHILIPSBURG Mallorie Smith scored three straight goals Wednesday — from the 2-, 10- and 21-minute marks — to lead the Lady Red Raiders’ girls’ soccer team to a 7-1 win over Philipsburg-Osceola.
Bellefonte’s Carolyn Seibel got the scoring started just one minute into the game.

Central out-shot Penns Valley by an 11-9 margin.
State College sweeps Red Land
STATE COLLEGE The Lady Little Lions rebounded from a loss with a dominant 5-0 sweep over Red Land on Wednesday.

Catelyn Janac and Amelia Dodoo both had wins for State College in singles, while the doubles pairs of Jasmine Cao-Keya Ahrestani and Saoirse Hopp-Leah Patzkowsky also came away with victories.

Cumberland Valley edges State College
STATE COLLEGE In a close contest, the Lady Little Lions fell just short in a 4-2 loss to Cumberland Valley on Wednesday.
