Chambersburg roundup: Softball fires perfect game to top Altoona

Chambersburg 16, Altoona 0: The Trojans struck for 10 runs in the top of the first inning, did not allow an Altoona baserunner and coasted to a three-inning Mid Penn Commonwealth win over the Mountain Lions on Tuesday afternoon in Altoona.

Lauren Allison

Kylee Miller (2 innings) and Saleen Null (1) combined to pitch a perfect game, with Miller striking out 3 and Null 2.

“Ky seems to be getting her velocity up to where she needs to be, and Null looked very sharp,” Chambersburg coach Chris Skultety said.

The Trojans (3-1, 3-1 MPC) racked up 13 hits. Karley Skultety drove in 6 runs on 2 hits, which included a homer. Sam Paetow went 3-for-4 with 3 RBIs and cracked a home run. Skultety’s blast was a 3-run shot and Paetow followed with hers in the next at-bat.

Bree Paetow was 2-for-4 with a double and 3 RBIs, and Addison Gsell belted a double. Hailey Frankhouser, Carly Benedict, Null and Lauren Allison also knocked in runs.

Coach Skultety said, “The top of the order continues to get it done, and I thought Lauren Allison did a great job of turning the order over from the No. 9 hole.”

Wyatt Kissel

Altoona 3, Chambersburg 2: The home-standing Mountain Lions scored a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to nip the Trojans in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Tuesday afternoon.

A bases-loaded walk to Connor Blough, preceded by a single and two bunts, scored the game-winner for Altoona (2-4).

Chambersburg (1-5, 1-3 MPC) scored both of its runs in the top of the third. Brandon Pattillo singled and Carter Fogal reached on an error. After the second out was made, Wyatt Kissel belted a double to right field that brought in both runners.

Kissel started and pitched 5 innings, giving up 4 hits and one earned run. Treyton Sarvis allowed only one hit, but suffered the loss.

Chambersburg 115, Carlisle 35: The Trojans won 14 of the 18 events to dominate the Thundering Herd in a Mid Penn Commonwealth meet at Trojan Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.

Jahnaya Wimberley

Chambersburg (3-0, 3-0 MPC) came up with four double winners — Jahnaya Wimberley in the long jump (17-1.5) and triple jump (35-7); Ashley Gunkelman in the javelin (108-1) and shot put (34-3); Yosmary Cabrera Reyes in the hurdles (16.8 in the 100, 48.6 in the 300) and Natalia Holmes in the 100 (12.3) and 200 (26.8).

“Jahnaya had a career day in the long and triple jumps and our jump squad is becoming a huge strength for our team,” Chambersburg coach Chris Monheim said. “Gunkelman continues to impress in the throws and is showing great consistency. (Camryn) Kiser had a very nice time in the 1600 (5:09.2) and did it completely on her own.”

Also taking first places were Olivia Shank in the discus (93-9), Kate Etter in the high jump (4-10) and Cayce Elbin in the pole vault (9-0). The 4 x 100 team of Cabrera Reyes, Holmes, Wimberley and Lashae Hang won in 50.8, and the 4 x 400 team of Addison Zimmerman, Lola Cross, Jayla Womack and Caitlyn Elbin won in 4:28.1.

Monheim said, “Our freshmen group continues to impress me – we had ninth graders all over the score sheet. Jaxin Frazer was second in the 200 (27.8) and did it out of the slow heat.”

Chambersburg 114, Carlisle 36: A 54-9 advantage in field events went a big way to help the Trojans clobber the Thundering Herd in a Mid Penn Commonwealth meet at Trojan Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.

C.J. Miotla

J.J. Kelly, as has become the norm, captured all three jump events, taking the high jump at 6-4, the long jump at 23-0 (a school record) and the triple jump at 46-6.5.

“J.J. wasn’t supposed to compete today, so he endured a hard training session yesterday and still had some pop in his first event,” Trojan coach Bob Walker said.

The other winners in the field for Chambersburg (3-0, 3-0 MPC) were Isaiah Sleighter in the discus (155-0), Jude Grillo in the javelin (148-2), Daniel Pisle in the pole vault (10-6) and Peter Mertz in the shot put (48-0).

Walker said, “Our throwers continue to dominate. Isaiah opened with a monster throw in the discus and Jude is showing  no ill effects from a knee injury from football.”

On the track, Antonio Harrison II captured the 100 in 11.0, the 200 in 23.0 and anchored the 4 x 100 relay to a win in 44.5. Also in that group were Iman Watson, Tanner Meyers and Andy Jean.

Other track winners included Jermere Jones (110 hurdle, 15.1), Addison Bisbal (400, 52.7), C.J. Miotla (300 hurdles, 44.8) and the 4 x 400 relay (3:45.5) team of Jones, Gabe Putt, Miotla and Daniel Casagrandi.

“I’m really happy C.J. decided to try hurdles thus year,” Walker said. “He won the 300 and was second in the 110. Jones looked sharp in the 110 hurdles and Antonio continues to give the team firsts in the 100 and 200. Addison, Daniel and Gabe all had personal bests in the 400.”

State College 17, Chambersburg 4: The Trojans ran into a strong Little Lion attack and succumbed in a Mid Penn Conference game Tuesday evening on the road.

“They have really athletic attackmen,” Chambersburg coach Joey Wilmot said. “Their attack had 11 goals and 8 assists.”

For the Trojans (4-3, 1-1 MPC), Sam Kunkleman scored 2 goals, Logan Mulkey had a goal and an assist, Ryan Cosey found the net once and Riley Harmon had an assist.

Wilmot said, “They were much more athletic than us. When you play a team more athletic, you have to have more effort than them. And we did not bring the kind of effort we needed to play with them, plus we didn’t follow the game plan at all.”

Lauren Wenger

State College 15, Chambersburg 8: The Trojans dropped a Mid Penn Commonwealth decision to the Little Lions at Trojan Stadium on Tuesday night.

Gabriella Sabatino tallied 4 goals for Chambersburg (1-5, 0-1 MPC) and added an assist. Ridglee Flohr accounted for 3 goals and also won the 100th draw control of her career.

Lauren Wenger and Hanna Woolf each scored a goal and Woolf added an assist.

Ellie Nicklas was busy in the goal and was credited with 19 saves.

Cumberland Valley 5, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans were overwhelmed by the Eagles on Tuesday afternoon in a Mid Penn Commonwealth match in New Kingstown.

Cumberland Valley won all 3 singles matches by 6-0, 6-0 scores, and won No. 2 double by the same score.

At No. 1 doubles, the Chambersburg (2-5, 1-3 MPC) duo of Camren Lesznar and Stephen Jacobs were able to win one game, but fell 6-1, 6-0.
