Girls’ swimming

State College cruises by Carlisle

CARLISLE Colleen Adams was one of a half-dozen Lady Little Lions to record individual first-places finishes in State College’s dominant 125-44 girls’ swimming victory over Carlisle on Monday.

Adams paced her team with the top times in the 100 backstroke (1 minute, 3.62 seconds) and 100 butterfly (1:03.88), while also helping the 200 medley relay team to first place.

Other first-place finishers included Jodie Challis (200 freestyle), Grace Dangelo (200 IM), Abbey Whipple (100 freestyle), Maya Urbanski (5:42.10) and Shea Stuyvesant (100 breaststroke). All three relay teams also came away with wins.

State College (3-0) will next take on Mifflin County on Jan. 2.

Boys’ swimming

State College swims to 3rd straight win

CARLISLE Behind performances from Matt Brownstead and Noah Witt, State College cruised to a big 110-60 win over Carlisle.

Brownstead finished first in two events (200 freestyle, 100 freestyle) and Witt did the same (200 IM, 100 backstroke) in the winning effort. Other first-place finishers for State College included Hunter Mona (500 freestyle) and Michael Challis (100 breaststroke).

Girls’ basketball

Penns Valley dominates

PHILIPSBURG For the fourth time in four games, Penns Valley boasted a different top scorer — Emma Butler led the charge this time with 17 points — as the Lady Rams made quick work of Philipsburg-Osceola, 72-32.

Hannah Montminy chipped in a double-double with 12 assists and 14 points, while Isabella Culver scored 16 points and held P-O’s star player in Halle Herrington to a season-low 20 points.

“Our goal was to hold her to under 20 points tonight,” Penns Valley coach Karen McCaffrey said, referring to Herrington, “so I thought Bella did an outstanding job of knowing where she was on the floor the whole time.”

The Lady Rams (4-0) will next compete in the Williamsburg Christmas Tournament on Dec. 27.

Lady Little Lions fall

STATE COLLEGE Isabelle Leazier paced State College with 15 points and Maya Bokunewicz added 14, but it wasn’t enough in the Lady Little Lions’ 48-44 loss to Mifflin County.

State College jumped out to a 10-6 lead in the first quarter but couldn’t hold on to it, as Mifflin County outscored the home team 17-11 in the second quarter.

The Lady Little Lions will next take on Chambersburg on Wednesday.

Boys’ basketball

Grace Prep can’t keep up

BENNER TOWNSHIP Zac Sechler scored 23 points, to account for more than half of Grace Prep’s offense, in his team’s 80-44 loss to Great Commission.

Great Commission went on a 23-7 run in the second quarter and then outscored Grace Prep 23-6 in the final quarter to seal the game.

Isaac Mass added eight points in the loss. Grace Prep will next play Huntingdon Christian on Tuesday.
