GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY
Chambersburg 20, Carlisle 43; Chambersburg 15, CD East 55: The Thundering Herd’s Vanessa Alder ran to first place in 19:32 in a meet Tuesday on her home course, but the Trojans pushed the next seven runners across the line and won a pair of meets. Chambersburg won 20-43 over Carlisle and 15-55 over CD East.
The Trojans (5-0, 5-0 MPC), who had two of their normal top five out of the lineup, can wrap up the Mid Penn Commonwealth Division crown with a win over Central Dauphin next week.
“We’re pleased to get the win, and we’ll be excited to get a win Tuesday against CD to seal up the title,” Chambersburg coach Chris Monheim said.
The seven Trojans after Alder were Camy Kiser (20:14), Lexi Boyd (20:40, Allie List (21:22), Abigale Bricker (21:41), Emilea Alleman (21:58), Hailey Short (22:12) and Samantha Foust (22:20).
BOYS CROSS COUNTRY
Chambersburg 17, CD East 46; Carlisle 22, Chambersburg 35: The Trojans could not break up Carlisle’s group of four at the front of the race and that cost them a chance at victory Tuesday in a Mid Penn Commonwealth tri-meet. Chambersburg did defeat CD East, 17-46.
Trojan coach John Ambrosio said, “We accomplished one of our three goals, which was to have our seventh runner in front of their fifth. It was nice to see (Zack) Yourkavitch and (Billy) Prentice bounce back with nice runs today.”
After the Herd’s Kevin Shank (16:22) finished first, followed by three teammates, Chambersburg’s Ben Colli was fifth in 16:52, Nick Monheim was sixth in 16:56 and Ari Snyder took seventh in 17:03.
The next four Trojans (4-1, 4-1 MPC) were Yourkavitch (9th, 17:39), Karter Reath (10th, 17:42), Prentice (11th, 18:05) and Kaden Rife (12th, 18:06).
Trojans place 4th at Founders: Chambersburg played on its home turf Tuesday, Penn National Founders Course, but managed only fourth place in a Mid Penn Commonwealth match. Central Dauphin won with 320 strokes and the Trojans had 358.
For Chambersburg (10-19-1), Brennan Sease had the best score, 10-over par 82, to place seventh. He capped off his round with a birdie on No. 18.
Garrett Swatsburg and Teegan Humelsine each shot 87 to tie for 15th place, Jeremy Otto’s 92 put him in a tie for 25th, and Ryan Corwell was tied for 27th with a 93. CD’s Jake Shmonov won the event with a 76.
The top five Trojans combined to shoot 11-over par on the difficult par 4 No. 8.
Cumberland Valley 3, Chambersburg 1: Just like Monday in a loss to Cedar Cliff, the Trojans grabbed a win in set 1 on Tuesday against Cumberland Valley, 25-15, but then the Eagles turned it around for 25-17, 26-16 and 25-22 wins to capture a Mid Penn Commonwealth match at CASHS Field House.
“We bounced back well tonight against a solid CV team,” Chambersburg coach Ty Frelin said. “The difference in the match was their scoring runs and our unforced errors. All in all, it was a good match, but we just didn’t finish.”
Raelyn Johnson came up with 20 digs for Chambersburg (1-3, 1-3 MPC) and added 8 kills. Morgan Stockslager had a pair of blocks and 6 kills, while Trinity yRivera added 8 kills and 12 digs.
Kate Etter had 13 assists and 9 service points, Ashli Ganoe had 11 assists and 9 kills, Emily Stutzman produced 13 points, Addi Kegerreis had 2 blocks and Emily Marquez added 17 digs.
Chambersburg 2, Cedar Cliff 1: Hayden Glass returned to the field for the Trojans and posted both goals to lead them to a win over the Colts in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Tuesday night at Trojan Stadium.
Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said, “It was nice getting Hayden Glass back in the lineup tonight. He produced both goals and put in a nice game in his first true game back with the team. I thought Cohen Redding had an exceptional game in the middle of the field. He really helps control the tempo of the game when things seem to get a bit frantic.”
The assists to Glass’s goals went to Brycen Kuhns and Cristian Lopez. The Trojans (3-2-1, 2-1-1 MPC) led in shots, 18-6 and corners (6-4). Drew Cover made 3 saves.
Grove said, “It was a good win. I was pleased with the way we moved the ball and we were patient going forward. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the shutout, but the boys carried themselves professionally tonight.”
Chambersburg at Cedar Cliff: The game was postponed because of a shortage of officials. It is rescheduled for Wednesday at 3:45.
