Penn Cambria runs over Johnstown
Penn Cambria entered the season facing the high expectations that accompanied the LHAC coaches’ preseason No. 1 ranking.

Fresh faces, same goals for Greater Johnstown
A lot of familiar names will be missing from the Johnstown High lineup this season.
Twenty-three players graduated from a group that helped Johnstown go 27-8 and win a pair of District 6 Class AAA titles over the past three seasons.
Coach Tony Penna Jr., who has 19 wins in his two years as Johnstown’s head coach, will put a lot of new faces on the field. The Trojans still have considerable talent and depth on the roster despite the loss of standouts such as Temple-bound Alkwan Williams, Army’s Gervon Simon, Youngstown State’s Brock Eisenhuth and St. Francis’ Dwight Andrews and Mark Watson.
Somerset’s Coyle captures triple jump crown
A year ago, Jayna Coyle seemed to surprise even herself when she qualified for the state track

12-run second inning at Johnstown on Friday afternoon.
Crushers torpedo Trojans
Undefeated Bishop McCort is good enough to win baseball games without any outside assistance.
Give the Crushers a break or two – or three or four – and they’ll make you pay.
Johnstown had a few defensive lapses that led to three McCort runs in the top of the first, setting the tone as the Crushers won 11-1 in a mercy-rule shortened game Thursday at Johnstown Middle School’s Fichtner Field.
