Taking a peek at softball

In Bedford, Claysburg, District 5, District 6, LHAC, Penn Cambria, Portage, Softball, Tussey Mountain, WestPAC on March 17, 2009 at 9:55 am

It’s certainly worth a read when you’ve got time. Of course, of all the teams, the LHAC’s Bishop Guilfoyle might be the one to watch, so perhaps some of the WestPAC can breathe a little easier for now!

Congratulations to North Star’s Nick Roberts, who took gold at the PIAA wrestling championship in the 103-pound weight class! Roberts halted Penn Cambria’s Evan Link for the victory. Gotta love two local kids battling it out for the state championship!
