Emily Rensch

Trojans take first place: Chambersburg edged Mechanicsburg by a single stroke on Tuesday to win a tournament at Mayapple G.C. in Carlisle.

The Trojans’ top 3 players combined to score 262, while Mechanicsburg posted 263.

Emily Rensch placed third with an 81, and she was the top Mid Penn Conference player, behind two girls from Manheim Township. Rensch shot nines of 41-40 and carded birdies on No. 4 and No. 17, both par 3 holes.

Emma Tolbert was three spots back in sixth place, shooting an 87, which included nines of 42-45. Chloe Fogelsonger jumped up into the No. 3 Chambersburg spot by posting a score of 94. She scored 47 on both the front and back nines and birdied No. 14.

The other player for the Trojans (15-1) was Alaina Morris, who was 19th with her 99.

Trojans defeat Herd, Panthers: Chambersburg remained unbeaten in Mid Penn Commonwealth dual meets by taking care of Carlisle (19-38) and Central Dauphin East (15-50) on Tuesday at Colonial Park.

Ari Snyder, Owen Shrader and Liam Kirkpatrick finished 1-2-3 together with a time of 18:05 for the Trojans (5-0, 5-0 MPC).

After Kaden Rife placed fifth (18:09), Julian Clark took 8th (18:29), Brian Morales was 10th (18:52), then came four in a row from 12th to 15th — Aiden Alleman (19:01), Bryton Hazelton (19:08), Logan Keffer (19:24) and Dom Onomastico (19:25).

Chambersburg takes 2 wins: The Trojans put seven of the nine top runners across the line Tuesday afternoon in Colonial Park to win a duel with Carlisle by a score of 22-39, and also picked up a 15-50 Mid Penn Commonwealth win over CD East.

The Herd’s Ava Bondy won the race in 20:30, and she was trailed by the Chambersburg threesome of Lexi Boyd, Madelyn Koons and Samantha Faust, each finishing in 22:02.

After another Carlisle runner, the Trojans had four consecutive girls cross the finish line, with Dana Rosenberry sixth (23:32), Brook Boone and Natalie Quinn tied for seventh (22:33), and Raegen Hepner in ninth (23:34).

Mifflin County 2, Chambersburg 1, OT: The Huskies scored on a breakaway in the overtime period to sneak past the Trojans, 2-1, in a Mid Penn Commonwealth game Tuesday afternoon in Lewistown.

“I’m very proud of how our girls played,” Chambersburg coach Kelsey Baker said. “We have had a very front-loaded season. We had a week off since our last game and that gave us a chance to really get in the practice where we needed it.”

The Trojans (0-8, 0-5 MPC)) scored just 5 minutes into the game on a goal by Reagan Barrett, her first career goal. Jaxin Frazer was credited with the assist.

Mifflin County trailed until tying the game with 3 minutes left, then ended it in overtime.

Baker said, “Jaxin Frazer and Morgan Smith played a great game in the midfield. They adapted very well to playing on grass and setting the energy for the team. Reagan Barrett is a freshman and has really started to develop as an attacker. She is great at moving the ball up the field and being ready in the circle.

Chambersburg 2, Altoona 0: The Trojans collected a third straight victory, blanking the Mountain Lions on the road Tuesday night in a non-league game.

“Tonight wasn’t our best performance, but we’re glad to take a win,” Chambersburg coach Corey Grove said. “We were sloppy and lacked possession in the first half, so we switched a few things formation-wise in the second, and I thought the second was much better.”

Michael Cespedes and Luca Gaishauer knocked in the goals for the Trojans (4-2), and Cristian Lopez earned an assist. Goalkeeper Drew Cover made 5 saves for the shutout.

Grove said, “Luca and Michael continue to score big goals for us and I thought Drew did an excellent job in goal. He made some big saves that kept us in the game.”
