MIDDLEBURG — Despite being sent to the buses twice due to heavy rain, Mifflin County was able to get its girls lacrosse game finished Saturday, and left Midd-West with an 11-4 victory.
“The varsity secured a dominating win with newcomers stepping up in true varsity fashion,” Huskies coach Theresa Lamont said. “Draw control and loose balls controlled remain a positive for us.”
The Huskies played with purpose and spread out the offensive attack among five players.
Kashia Smith led Mifflin County with four goals, while Emma Ritchey, Mara Gallo and Sadie Fike scored two apiece; Brenna Dobson had one. Goalie Mikayla Bodley had five saves.
The JV team settled for a 4-4 tie with the Mustangs to stay unbeated in two outings; Gallo had all four goals.
Mifflin County (3-1) travels to Central Dauphin East today.
Track and field
ALTOONA — Mifflin County had three individuals in the inaugural Stache Classic meet Saturday.
The boys had a pair of those — Chris Royer in the 800-meter run (2:09.63) and Josiah Sechler in the javelin with a 180-foot, 5-inch effort. Kylee Cubbison captured the 3,200 in 11:03.93.
The Huskies managed a number of second- and third-place finishes among the six-team field, among them the girls 4×400 relay and Addie Parson’s runner-up finish to Cubbison in the long-distance race. Sechler added a silver in the long jump.
“I’m very excited about the promise our young athletes are showing,” boys coach Scot Sechler said. “When you go to an invitational and you have freshmen and sophomores placing, that shows two things — great upperclassman leadership and a great job by our coaching staff.
“I’m excited to see how far these young ones progress as the season grinds on.”
