Baublitz, Houtz win TVL?run

COVE — Garrett Baublitz was just seconds off the course record at Susquenita, leading the Juniata boys to their third straight win in the Tri-Valley League Invitational.

Paced by race winner Emily Houtz, the girls finished second as a team.

“The boys were ready to run on this very difficult and challenging course today,” Juniata coach Jeff Miller said. “Everyone on both the boys and girls teams ran personal best times for this course.”

Leading the ways for the boys was Baublitz with a time of 18:09, just 7 seconds off of the course record. Clay Yeager was second for the Indians, placing fifth overall. James Hazard was seventh, putting three runners over the line in the top 10.

Emily Houtz (24:02) and Sydney Houtz finished first and second, respectively.

“Emily ran a tough race up front taking the Tri-Valley title for the second year in a row,” Miller said.

The Indians will compete at Mifflin County on Oct. 17.

Juniata 2, Susquenita 0

COVE — Ashlyn Pannebaker and Nylah Pannebaker each scored goals as Juniata shut out Susquenita in a Tri-Valley League girls soccer game Wednesday.

The Blackhawks had opportunities — Juniata’s edge in shots was slight — but goalie Hailey Kepner kept the Indians in the game.

“We scored right away but didn’t play to our potential in the first half,” Juniata coach Laresa Paden said. “The second half we attacked space and possessed the ball so much better because we were a lot more active off the ball and did a better job at switching the field.”

Juniata hosts Halifax Saturday.
