Northern Bedford

Claysburg-Kimmel got 12 service points from Megan Hartman en route to a three-game sweep of host Northern Bedford Oct. 14.

A hotly contested first game saw the Lady Bulldogs come out on top by a 27-25 count. C-K then won the final two games in convincing fashion, by scores of 25-11 and 25-15.

Madison Johnson led NB with seven kills, five blocks and six digs, while Abby Zelanko dealt a team-high 11 service points.

“We played very well early. Claysburg took the momentum from game one and did not allow us to regroup,” NB coach Terisha Mitchell said.

Harleigh Cavender had seven assists and Jocelyn Shultz added five kills for the Lady Bulldogs.

Northern Bedford pulled out an exciting home volleyball win Oct. 15, defeating Fannett-Metal 3-1.

NB won the first game by a convincing 25-11 score before the visiting Lady Tigers reversed roles and took a relatively easy 25-16 win in the second game.

That’s when things got interesting. With Fannett-Metal at game point in the third game, NB rallied for a thrilling 29-27 win.

“That rally was crucial as we were down by seven points,” said a very pleased Lady Panther coach Terisha Mitchell.

NB hung on to a tight 25-23 win in the fourth game to close out the match.

Jenna Carberry led NB with 21 service points and added six digs. Madison Johnson had 11 kills and six blocks. Rae Shaulis added 16 service points.

Northern Bedford fell to 3-13 overall with a 3-1 home loss to Southern Fulton Oct. 17.

The Lady Panthers battled gallantly before succumbing to the visiting Lady Indians. After SF won the first two games by identical 25-18 scores, NB bounced back. NB’s 25-16 win in the third game regained some momentum.

“We played very well and I saw a lot of positives in that third game,” NB coach Terisha Mitchell said.

Unfortunately, the pendulum swung back in the favor of the Lady Indians who closed out the match with another 25-18 win in game four.

Abby Zelanko had 22 service points for the Lady Panthers while Rae Shaulis added 15. Madison Johnson recorded 11 blocks and 6 kills.


The Lady Dragons split a pair of Mountain League contests last week, setting their league record at 4-9 on the season. The Dragons defeated Clearfield but fell to Philipsburg.

On Oct. 15 at Clearfield, Central won in straight sets 25-16, 26-24, 25-14.

Lainie Heuston had a team-leading 22 digs and added seven service points. Abby Kitt and Erin Brumbaugh each had nine service winners, while Brumbaugh also had 10 kills. Haylin Mingle, Brinley Bowers and Kiera Berkheimer had five service points while Jenna Carder added four. Brooke Claar registered seven kills and had two blocks.

On Oct. 17, Central fell in four sets to Philipsburg-Osceola 21-25, 25-20, 25-22, 25-20.

Erin Brumbaugh had a huge game with 15 digs, 12 assists, seven kills and six service points. Hannah Lingenfelter paced the team with 15 service points, and Annie Kitt had 10 kills. Lainie Heuston finished with 21 digs and five service points. Jenna Carder (six) and Haylie Mingle (five) combined for 11 service points, while Brinley Bowers had 12 assists. Brooke Claar finished with five kills.

“The girls played well both nights,” Central coach Brad Heuston said. “We swept Tyrone and won the opener against P-O. The team continues to improve.”


The Claysburg-Kimmel volleyball team defeated host Mount Union in four sets Oct. 16, 25-20, 25-23, 18-25, 25-23.
