B-A track teams win close battles with Hollidaysburg

The Bellwood-Antis track and field teams traveled the short distance to Hollidaysburg on Thursday.
The B-A boys won their second close one in a row by defeating the Golden Tigers 76-74, and the Lady Blue Devils knocked off the Hollidaysburg girls in another close score 80-70.
Fresh from a 76-74 win over Chestnut Ridge on Tuesday, the Bellwood-Antis boys needed every point they could muster to defeat the County Seaters and improve their mark to 5-1 with their fifth straight triumph.
The B-A boys won seven of the 15 individual events and two of the three relay events. Perhaps the most important points were the seven second place and five third places that added the points needed for the win.
Brandon Pruznak won the 400, Ben Hatch won the 800, Aaron Bell took the 1600 and Elliot Geist won the 3200. In the field events Tyler Narehood won the shot put, Tony DelGrosso won the discus and Dustin Harris won the javelin.
The 1600 relay team of Dan Kovac, Chris Edmiston, Hatch and Pruznak and the 3200 relay team of Jamie Rimmey, Evan Celmo, Josh Hanna and Liam Flynn, both were victorious.
“The kids really did well today. We moved some of them around to try to maximize points and the kids came through,” said Bellwood-Antis boys coach Nick Lovrich. “We have been doing very well in the distance and field events the last couple of meets. Today we outscored Hollidaysburg 24-3 in the field and had two placers in every event from the 400 dash up, including a sweep in the two-mile. Anytime you can beat a big triple-A school like Hollidaysburg, it is a feather in your cap.”
The Blue Devil girls got double wins from Lauren Carter (100, 300 low hurdles), Steph Hatch (high jump, long jump), Ashley Mueller (200, 100 IM hurdles) and Allison Sinisi (javelin, pole vault) to highlight their victory.
Ashley Mueller won the 200, Jenna Ralston won the 800, Sarah Bell won the 3200.
The 400 relay team of Hatch, Erica Greene, Carter and Mueller and the 1600 relay team of Chelsea Wilson, Lauren Leap, Carter and Ralston also won their races.
“We went into the 1600 relay needing to win to pull out the dual meet,” explained B-A girls coach Julie Roseborough. “We had 74 points and you have to score 76 to win. That group of girls (3200 relay) is starting to develop and has really been stepping up. Lauren Carter gets us off to a good strong first leg and the other girls are doing an outstanding job as well. We got a lot of scoring from our four double winners (Carter, Steph Hatch, Allison Sinisi and Ashley Mueller). With the rainy weather and the quality of Hollidaysburg, which has some pretty good athletes, it was a really nice win.”
