Chambersburg 84, Cumberland Valley 66: The Trojans placed first in seven track events and used their depth to hand Cumberland Valley a Mid Penn Commonwealth defeat on Tuesday afternoon.

“It’s a nice win for us and we have improved a great deal in the last month,” Chambersburg coach Chris Monheim said. “Depth was a big part of the win, and (Bre’ya) Clopper, (Shanelle) Burrowes and (Keira) Whitehead were all over the scoresheet.”

Whitehead captured a pair of first in the distance races, taking the 800 in 2:25.46 and the 1600 in 5:24.57. Anna DeGrange topped the field in the 3200 with a time of 12:33.55, and the 4 x 800 team of Whitehead, Allie List, Maddie Kinton and DeGrange won in 10:28.78.

Clopper won the 100 hurdles in 16.17 and Burrowes was the 100 winner in 13.28. The 4 x 100 team had a time of 50.43 and included Burrowes, Taryn Robinson, Aniyah Jones and Jacelyn Jones.

The lone winner in the field events for the Trojans (2-2, 2-2 MPC) was Ashley Adams in the discus, with her toss of 103-3.

Cumberland Valley 82, Chambersburg 68: The Trojans won half of the events, but weren’t able to match the Eagles’ depth and dropped a Mid Penn Commonwealth meet Tuesday.

Tyeshawn Worrell was a double winner for Chambersburg (1-3, 1-3 MPC), taking the 100 in 11.10 and the long jump in 21-1.75, as was Brock Harmon in the discus (139-9) and shot put (52-2.5).

Other individual winners included Trentin Overcash (1600 in 4:34.71), Nate Cooper (400, 51.37), Brayden Boyd (3200, 10:07.60) and Tyler Luther (pole vault, 11-6).

Chambersburg’s 4 x 100 team of Karter Jones, Donovan Moses, Jeffrey Jonathan and Worrell crossed the line in 44.10.

Trojan coach Bob Walker said, “The team keeps getting better every week. The 4 x 100 time might be the best we’ve run in 10 years. Boyd made a nice breakthrough by winning the 3200.

“Brock, Trentin and Tyeshawn are the captains and continue to win events and provide leadership by example to a young team. Cooper, Karter Jones, Diontae Barbour, Moses and Aaron Maynard provide depth in the 100 to 800.”
