Area wrestlers search for gold
Conner Buttry and Aaron Burkett will make their debuts in the PIAA Wrestling Championships this morning, but they are quite familiar with a state tournament at the Giant Center in Hershey.
Each has been a fixture on the Chestnut Ridge squad that has made back-to-back appearances in the state dual-meet tournament. That familiarity could help them, along with returning state medalist Austin Buttry, when the three Lions hit the mats in Hershey this morning.
Windber ousts Chestnut Ridge boys
Windber held off a late Chestnut Ridge rally and advanced to the District 5 Class AA boys’ basketball semifinals with a 58-52 victory over the visiting Lions on Wednesday night.
The fourth-seeded Ramblers (19-4) built a double-digit second-quarter advantage and held a 47-39 edge heading into the fourth, but the fifth-seeded Lions (13-9) battled back to pull within one with just over a minute remaining. Windber answered with a key defensive play and also hit five of six free throws down the stretch to preserve the win.

LHAC, WestPAC titles up for grabs
The winter weather has played havoc on the area athletic schedules and athletic directors have been challenged to reschedule events in a smaller and ever-narrowing time frame.
With that in mind, several teams still have to nail down their berths in Saturday’s WestPAC and Laurel Highlands Conference basketball championship games.
