KERSEY - The Elk County Catholic Lady Crusader softball team captured the District 9 Class A championship by defeating the Brockway Lady Rovers by a 4-0 score Thursday afternoon at the Fox Township Community Park in Kersey.
The Lady Crusaders used a two-run home run by Lyndsey Trumbull in the second inning and a two-run double by Michelle Imbrogno in the sixth inning to account for their four runs.
After pulling off a big win Wednesday to knock off an undefeated Johnsonburg squad and advance to the D9 Class A baseball final, the Elk County Catholic Crusaders came out flat on Thursday evening at Berwind Park. The ECC squad got behind early, struggled with their offense, and were shut out 7-0 by a very good Coudersport team, which entered the tournament as the sixth seed.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ Michael Shuey and the Johnsonburg track and field coaching staff ran the gamut of emotions last Friday during the javelin event at the PIAA Track and Field Championship Meet at Shippensburg University.
In the end, the wonder with the anticipation to victory became joy with the realization of a gold medal for the Johnsonburg senior.
Shuey took the PIAA gold medal in the javelin with a throw of 200-1, a mark he established with his first throw of the competition.
One is the loneliest number.
Elk County Catholic (16-6) dealt previously undefeated Johnsonburg (20-1) a stunning 5-2 defeat Wednesday afternoon at Sandy Beach Recreational Park, ousting the No. 1 seed from the District 9 Class A baseball playoffs in the process. Throughout the season, one run was often times the difference in a game for the Rams; on Wednesday, just one loss spoiled their season and kept them out of both the district title game and the state playoffs.
JOHNSONBURG â€“ Johnsonburg track and field was honored with a banquet Tuesday night at the Johnsonburg Fire Hall.
Varsity head coach Rene Timm expressed appreciation to the athletes for their hard work this season.
"We want to honor all the wonderful athletes we have here," Timm said. "I just want to thank all of my athletes and all of my junior high athletes for being such wonderful, dedicated young men and women. We truly have such a great team and I also give thanks to all the parents that have raised these wonderful athletes. They deserve all the credit in the world."
