Trinity Rivera had an outstanding statistical night for the Trojans (1-1, 1-1 MPC), putting up 7 kills, 9 digs and 10 service points. Emily Marquez racked up 24 digs.
Frelin said, “Our serve receive was much improved and we were very energetic on defense. It was a good match for us all the way around.”

Chambersburg puts 2 in top 8: In a Mid Penn Conference girls golf tournament held on Thursday at Carlisle Barricks, a pair of Trojans played their way into the top eight finishers.
Heather Sanbower fired an 85 to tie for fourth for Chambersburg, as Camp Hill’s Paige Richter blew away the field with a 73. Sanbower posted four pars on each nine and went 42-43.
Also for the Trojans, Emily Rensch posted a 90 to place eighth and Emma Tolbert shot a round of 96 to take 12th place. Rensch had a fine back nine of 41, with four pars and five bogeys. Tolbert improved eight strokes on the back nine.
Chambersburg coach Mark Yost said, “Both Emily and Emma shot career-best scores today, which is really nice. Emily just missed a putt on 18 that would have let her break 90. It was nice to put two in the top eight, and all four of our girls (which includes Cloe Fogelsonger) have qualified for the Mid Penn tournament.”
Chambersburg 1, State College 1: The Trojans and Little Lions played to a stalemate in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game at Trojan Stadium, that was delayed by the weather.
“It was a well-fought game,” Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said. “State College has a solid group that has a lot of varsity experience, whereas for many of our guys it was their first time out there in a big game like this. I thought my boys showed grit and heart. We really had to stay organized and take advantage of our opportunities.”
Cristian Lopez scored the goal for the Trojans (1-1-1, 0-0-1 MPC), who were out-shot 12-6, but had more corner kicks (5-2) than the Little Lions.
Grove said, “We always want to win the game, but with a few guys sidelined tonight, we will take the result.”
