Chambersburg roundup 9/26


Girls: Herd slips past Trojans, 26-30: In the showdown for a likely Mid Penn Commonwealth Division title, Carlisle put runners in the 2, 3, 4 and 6 positions to edge Chambersburg. It was the Trojans’ first loss since 2014 and snapped a 21-meet win streak.

Abby Yourkavitch won the race in 19:03 for the Trojans (4-1), but the next teammate to finish was Sydney Parson in fifth (20:50). Chambersburg then took 7-through-10, with Kaylee Mowery (21:11), Kyleena Purvis (21:12), Kiera Whitehead (21:14) and Maddie Kinton (21:18).

Trojan coach Chris Monheim said, “Abby made a 19:03 look easy on a very warm day, but we weren’t able to back her up as much as needed. Our girls rallied well in the second half of the race, but at that point it was too late. We’re looking forward to regrouping and going to the Carlisle Invitational on Saturday.”
