Four area squads qualify for District 6-AA tournament
Four local wrestling teams have qualified for the District 6 Class AA dual-meet tournament, but they’re all going to have to travel to compete in it.
Westmont Hilltop is the highest-seeded local team at No. 7, but the Hilltoppers will have to head to Huntingdon on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. match with No. 10 Claysburg-Kimmel. The winner of that match will take on No. 2 Huntingdon at 8 p.m.
Tyrone prevails over Cambria Heights
Tyrone entered Friday night’s playoff game with intentions of proving last year’s state title appearance was no fluke.
The Golden Eagles took a step in that direction, treating their home crowd to a 14-7 win over feisty challenger Cambria Heights.
Both teams entered the game at 7-3, but came from much different history. Cambria Heights hadn’t made the playoffs since 1998, when current head coach Jarrod Lewis was a sophomore on the team.

Friday preview: Forest Hills concerned about Bishop Guilfoyle
Bishop Guilfoyle accomplished something not many believed possible during last week’s win against Cambria Heights. The Marauders significantly hampered the Highlanders’ high-powered run game.

Second game in week too much for Cambria Heights
After losing to Richland in Week 2, Bishop Guilfoyle bounced back in a big way in its 17-7 win over Cambria Heights Friday night at Mansion Park in Altoona.
Friday preview: Somerset basking in football success
A few more signs saying “You’ve entered Golden Eagles Territory” align the streets of Somerset these days. There are a couple more people wearing Somerset football T-shirts at the grocery store.
Funny what a couple of decisive victories can do for a program and a community seeking to move past a couple decades of mostly losing seasons.
Contorchick, Cambria Heights overpower Westmont
The way Donnie Contorchick plays football, his Cambria Heights uniform should be covered with grass stains, caked with mud and sporting the type of wear and tear typical of a rough and tumble two-way player.

Cambria Heights, Westmont looking for better performances
Two teams looking to rebound after Week 1 losses will meet this afternoon at Price Field.

Cambria Heights lost in a high-scoring affair to visiting Richland in what had been tabbed as a potential signature game for a much-improved program coming off a 5-5 season.
