Beatty, Skopic lead Trojans in ICC title meet
MOUNT UNION — Bellwood-Antis won the boys title and Juniata Valley the girls at the Inter-County Conference cross country championships at Mount Union Wednesday.
At the meet, Mount Union also scored dual meets against Bellwood-Antis and Southern Fulton that were postponed earlier in the season. That led to a final record for the Trojan boys of 8-1, while the girls finished 1-5-3.
Kasey Fitz of Southern Fulton was the overall boys winner. Mount Union’s Mason Beatty ran 20:16 to lead the host team. The top five for Mount Union included Von Trice, Caden Chilcote, Ethan Fisher and A.J. Chilcote, with three of them in the top 25.
Juniata Valley’s Morgan Hess was the girls winner. Mount Union’s Cailyn Skopic was eighth at 24:38. Carmen Loner and Celia Stever also ran for the Trojans, who did not have a full complement to score as a team.
The Trojans may have a brighter future in the league as four of the top five runners in the junior high race wore Mount Union uniforms. Evan Yakymac was second to Southern Fulton’s Teagan Ritz in that race.
The District 6 meet is Oct. 30 at Mifflin County’s Reedsville course.
Line Mountain 3 (OT)
MANDATA — Line Mountain’s Sage Hoover answered a Lily Shutt goal late in the second, forcing overtime, but Midd-West’s Rachel Keister notched the game winner in the extra period as the Mustangs took the nonleague girls soccer contest, 4-3, Wednesday.
Shutt and Hoover were each key for their respective teams. Sage Hoover tied the game after an Alyssa Hoover goal gave Midd-West the early lead. In the second half, Shutt wrapped a pair of goals around one for Line Mountain before Sage Hoover evened the score.
Shutt also had the helper on the overtime goal.
Midd-West is 8-8-1.
