Boys’ basketball

SJCA beats Rams

BOALSBURG Three players reached double digits for St. Joseph’s, as the Wolves sprinted past Penns Valley 53-42 in boys’ basketball Monday night.

Among those with 10 or more points for SJCA were Ethan Khoza (12), Jack Mangene (15) and Zane Thornburg (11). Logan Snyder paced the Rams with a game-high 21 points.

“I loved our poise in the fourth quarter,” Wolves coach Richard Ciambotti said, referring to the fact his team outscored Penns Valley 13-8 in the final period. “It is the sign of a team that is growing up.”

SJCA took nearly half of their shots — 24 of 49 — from the perimeter. It finished 7 of 24 from 3, with Thornburg nailing 3 of 10.

RJ Marsh paced St. Joseph’s with a game-high 12 rebounds.

SJCA is now 2-0 with the win, while the Rams are 1-1.

Girls’ swimming

Bellefonte comes up short

Hoffman placed first in the 200 IM and 100 butterfly, while Cole had the top times in the 50 freestyle and 100 breaststroke. The two also joined Caroline Helms and Elizabeth Haak on the winning freestyle relay team with a time of 1 minute, 53.14 seconds.

Boys’ swimming

Red Raiders fall

HUNTINGDON Zach Malinich highlighted Bellefonte’s effort with the top times in the 200- and 500-freestyle, but Huntingdon still came out on top 104-51.

Malinich also helped the Red Raiders swim to a first-place time in the 200 medley relay with help from Harrison Horner, Payne McCartney and Brian Feldman. They posted a time of 1 minute, 56.60 seconds.

Horner also placed first in the 100 butterfly with a time of 1:07.49.
