A roundup of all the high school games you missed — and aren’t covered elsewhere in the CDT — from May 10, 2017:


Wolves close out regular season with win

STATE COLLEGE — St. Joseph’s Catholic Academy closed out the regular season on a high note on Wednesday.

The Wolves rode the arm of Bryce Herman to a 5-1 win over Moshannon Valley.

Herman gave up four hits, struck out nine and surrendered an unearned run in a complete-game victory.

Jack Mangene and Zane Thornburg each collected two hits for the Wolves, who will rest until they find out their first-round opponent in the District 6 tournament.


BEA too much for Bishop McCort

JOHNSTOWN — Bald Eagle Area opened with a three-run first inning and never looked back in a 10-4 win over Bishop McCort.

Mackenzie McCloskey, Caitlyn Close and Megan Kresovich each had multiple hits for the Lady Eagles. Close had a triple as part of her three hits to lead the team. She also tied Lexi Barnhart with two RBIs.

Madison Ripka earned the win for BEA, and Zoey Surovec picked up the save.

“We got good pitching out of both Ripka and Surovec,” BEA coach Don Lucas said. “We got timely hitting and played good defense so that all equals out to a win.”

Central sweeps doubleheader with PV

SPRING MILLS — Penns Valley tallied just two runs in two losses to Central — 9-0 in Game 1 and 8-2 in Game 2.

The Lady Rams had three hits and committed five errors in the first game.

Lydia Collison and Cassidy Stover were the lone players to have multiple hits in Game 2 for Penns Valley.

Ashley Negley, Camryn Feathers and Kylie Metzger all had home runs for the Lady Scarlet Dragons.
