Mifflin County ends season on high note

HARRISBURG — Sophomores Molly Wagoner and Halle Rittenhouse scored a combined 28 points in Mifflin County’s 51-48 win over Central Dauphin East Friday night.

Wagoner scored 15 points while Rittenhouse scored a personal-record 13.

The Huskies won three of their last four games to end the campaign, but this particular win is something coach Roger Herto will remember for a long time.

“Central Dauphin East was playing for everything tonight because they needed to win to get into the district tournament,” he said. “The girls showed me a lot of heart and fight tonight and I’m as happy about this win and I was about any win I’ve had from any of my teams.

“We’re losing five real, quality kids here, and I’m just glad they and the team could finish the year with a really nice win,” Herto said of his senior class. “You hate to end the season short of anything that isn’t the postseason, but this is a really good feeling.”

Fern Silfies was clutch late, going 1-for-2 at the line just before Central Dauphin East missed a game-tying 3-pointer.

Central Dauphin East won the JV game, 57-43. Kate Knable scored 15 points.

Mifflin County finishes the season with an 8-14 record.
