Tyrone girls and boys both defeated the Huntingdon Bearcats and the Bellefonte Raiders. The girls set the standard for the season with their first win against Bellefonte in history.

“I think it would have been an even more decisive win if we hadn’t been hampered by injuries. Kristen Johnson would have chalked up at least another place in the 3200 [relay], which we did not even run.  And her mad 800 and 400 skills would also have generated points,” said Coach Steve Everhart.

We have a lot of fun and competitive personalities on the girl’s team—keep those two traits alive and it should be a memorable season for coaches and athletes alike. We just need to keep healthy.”

“I was surprised in that Bellefonte had a lot more members on their team and they are consistently a good team. I think our greatest asset on Tuesday was that we have become more diverse; we earned points in every event except the pole vault,” said Head Coach Chris Shedd.

The Tyrone boys scored two wins, beating Bellefonte 102-48 and Huntingdon 131-19.

The Tyrone girls also captured two wins as they beat Bellefonte 80-68 and Huntingdon 83-67.

“I was pleased with the competitive spirit of the team. Everyone was encouraging everyone else to do their best. Very little whining and complaining. Good team wins,” said Head Coach Chris Shedd.
