Herrington moves up all-time list in loss

After surpassing the 2,000-career point mark Monday, Philipsburg-Osceola’s Halle Herrington became Centre County’s No. 2 all-time leading scorer Wednesday.

Herrington’s 18 points in the 67-49 loss to Penns Valley gave her 2,035 points for her career — moving her three points ahead of State College grad Kyla Irwin. Only Penns Valley’s Dana McDonald (1985-1989) has more career points. (No county boy has ever reached the 2,000-point milestone.)

The Lady Rams started off hot and led by eight points after the first quarter, before watching the halftime lead balloon to 40-21. Isabella Culver scored a game-high 27 points and Hannah Montminy added 16 points, helping Penns Valley improve to 8-3 on the season.

Samantha Bainey had 16 points for Philipsburg-Osceola, which fell to 5-7 with the loss.

State College holds on for victory

State College knocked off Central Dauphin East 58-51 on Monday.

Leading 20-13 after one quarter, the Lady Little Lions managed just seven points in the second quarter, and CDE rallied to forge a 27-27 halftime tie.

State College pulled ahead by four points at the end of three quarters and held on for a seven-point victory.

The Lady Little Lions’ Maya Bokunewicz scored a game-high 21 points. Isabelle Leazier finished with 20 points, and Kelsey Love added eight points.

BEA trips up on road

Bald Eagle Area fell to Huntingdon on the road Tuesday, 46-33.

Freshmen Maddy Perry and Kierra Serb led the Lady Eagles with 12 and nine points, respectively.

“I was really pleased with our effort,” BEA coach Darin Hazel said. “I thought Kierra Serb and Kristen Onder played well in their extended varsity minutes.”


Bellefonte slips past Huntingdon

Trailing Huntingdon by a point with one weight class left, Bellefonte’s Lane Aikey stepped up to record a major decision and lead his team to a 35-32 win Tuesday.

Aikey won 12-3 at 120 pounds.

Falls from Ryan Smith (132), Kenneth Simpson (152), Ethan Richner (160) and Ethan Rossman (195) helped the Red Raiders build a 31-16 lead, but Huntingdon got a pin, a major decision and two decisions in four straight matches to take a 32-31 lead, setting the stage for Aikey’s clinching victory.
