Six Trojans plan to continue athletic careers

JOHNSTOWN — Greater Johnstown High School honored six student-athletes who will continue their careers in college, and the district recognized two senior athletes for their contributions.

The ceremony took place Tuesday afternoon at Cochran Auditorium.

“This group has been outstanding on the field and court, and in the classroom. They have represented all of us well, and they now will take their place in the long line of Trojan student-athletes who have played at the next level,” Johnstown Athletic Director Tony Penna Jr. said.

The athletes recognized on Tuesday included:

n Alex Teeter, Mount Aloysius, women’s softball. Teeter had a career .422 batting average and drew 50 walks for coach Randy Romesberg. She started every game since her freshman season for a Trojans squad that consistently was a contender in the LHAC and District 6 Class AAA.

She is the daughter of Carl and Claudine Teeter. Her father is the successful coach at Mount Aloysius with more than 100 career victories.

n Roshon Fields, Pitt-Johnstown, basketball. Fields averaged a double-double during his senior season with 11.1 points a game and more than 10 rebounds a contest for coach Neil Cobaugh’s five-time 6-AAA championship team.

The 6-foot-6, 185-pound forward was a key contributor on the past two district title-winning squads. He is the son of Megan Alwine.

n Dalvin Williams, Lock Haven, football. Williams was a first-team Pennsylvania Sports Writers All-State pick in Class AAA after collecting double-digit tackles in all 10 games as a senior for coach Penna.

The 6-2, 200-pound linebacker had 146 stops, five sacks, two fumble recoveries and two blocked field goals. He had 22 tackles against Somerset. Williams also was a Tribune-Democrat first-team All-Area selection and was honored in the LHAC.

He is the son of Aletta Battle.

n Nick Subich, Lock Haven, football. A two-way standout, Subich started three seasons on the offensive line and at linebacker for Penna

He played guard as a sophomore and was center the past two seasons on offense. Penna credited Subich for playing two seasons despite a nagging shoulder injury.

Subich was a team leader known for his unselfish play. He is the son of Brian Subich and Michael Jimerson.

n Brody LoBoi, Mount Aloysius, baseball. LoBoi batted .285 with four doubles and 12 RBIs as an infielder for coach Dee Dee Osborne. As a pitcher, he went 2-3 with a 2.48 ERA and 29 strikeouts.

LoBoi also played basketball and football during his career at Johnstown. He is the son of Mike and Dawn LoBoi.

n Michael Brooks, Penn Highlands Community College. Brooks overcame knee injuries in both his junior and senior seasons to keep his dream of playing at the college level intact.

Penna said Brooks is set to spend a year at Penn Highlands while he continues to rehabilitate his knee. Penna said Brooks still has interest from PSAC schools monitoring his progress.

Brooks will participate in the upcoming Ken Lantzy Finest 40 all-star game next month, which once had been considered unlikely. Brooks is the son of Michael Brooks and Kathy Logan.

n Amber Maurer, undecided, softball. The Trojans recognized Maurer, who had a .415 batting average and 53 RBI for coach Romesberg this spring. She is the daughter of Herb Maurer and Sharon Carpenter.

n Phillip Madison, undecided, basketball and football. Johnstown also recognized Madison, a two-sport standout. Madison was a 1,000-point scorer in basketball and a versatile performer in football for the Trojans. He is the son of Yvette Madison.
