CARLISLE - The Mifflin County girls track team got two wins apiece from Kelsie Kennedy and Anna Aurand, but it wasn't enough as the Huskies fell to Carlisle 85-65 at Carlisle High School on Thursday.
The boys team suffered a similar 89-61 loss at the hands of the Thundering Herd.
Kennedy swept the hurdles, winning the 100-meter hurdles in 18.2 seconds and the 300-meter event in 51.8 seconds.
Aurand took the long jump by leaping 14 feet, 10 1/2 inches and the triple jump with 33 feet, one inch.
"It's like we've said since the beginning of the season, the difference between us and some of the Mid-Penn teams is depth," Mifflin County coach Scott Gantz said. "We're developing on the fly. It's going to be a process."
Mifflin County did very well in the field events, taking all three places in the shot put thanks to winner Makala Rearick (36-4), Makenzie Rearick (30-5 1/2) and Jenna Miller (28-8 1/2).
Just like Kennedy for the girls, Nathan Baumgardner swept the hurdles for the boys, taking the 100-meter event in 15.7 seconds and the 300 in 40.4.
Darien Knudsen offered his usual strong performance in the 3200-meter run, taking the event in 9:49.2, besting his closest competitor by over a minute.
After finishing fourth on Tuesday, Knudsen rebounded with the win.
"It was a totally different race (today)," Gantz said. "He tried to win a kicker's race (Tuesday) and he just couldn't do it. Today was more what you would expect from Darien."
George Donahey took the pole vault by vaulting 14-0, two and a half feet more than teammate Mike Bielski, who finished in second place.
Gantz was encouraged by Donahey's near stadium-record in a swirling wind.
The girls are now 2-2 and the boys are 1-3 on the season.
The Huskies will be back in action on Tuesday when they host Central Dauphin East.

Mount Union 9, Southern Huntingdon 7
MOUNT UNION - After falling behind Southern Huntingdon 6-1 in two and a half innings, Mount Union came charging back hard in the bottom half of the third. Led by a Kristin Miles grand-slam, the Trojans scored six runs in the inning, taking the final lead of the eventual 9-7 win.
"I always tell the girls, 'When they punch, you have to punch back harder,'" said Mount Union coach Matt Fiscus, giving his team credit for its strong batting in the third.
In her 2-for-3 day, Miles also had a triple, bringing her RBI total to five. Liza Fegley also picked up two RBIs, and Marissa Aurand and Lauren Shugarts collect one apiece.
From the circle, Aurand picked up the win, although she had to battle with a tight strike zone the entire seven innings. Aurand had four strikeouts, three walks and gave up 11 hits.

Danville 5, Midd-West 4
DANVILLE - Danville got a lead-off double in the bottom of the seventh from Ally Mullen, who scored the deciding run in a tough 5-4 loss for Midd-West at Danville High School.
Midd-West jumped out quickly and took a 2-0 lead to start the game in the top of the first and added another in the second inning, but Danville kept chipping away.
The home team got one back in the bottom half of the first and then again in the second to make it 3-2 after two innings.
Midd-West tacked on in the fourth, but again, Danville came back with two in the bottom of the fifth to knot the game at 4-4.
Brynn Markley doubled for the Mustangs and knocked in half of her team's runs.

Hollidaysburg 4, Mifflin County 1
LEWISTOWN - Connor Saltzer was the only Husky to walk away with a win when Mifflin County got its first look at District 6 competition during a 4-1 loss to Hollidaysburg Thursday.
Saltzer edged Sam Sky, 6-3, 6-1, and Cody Donaldson and Nate Koller won the first set of their No. 1 doubles match, but the Huskies lost every other match in straight sets.
On Monday the Huskies (7-4, 7-3) travel for a makeup match at Susquehanna Township.
