BROOKVILLE - Two members of the St. Marys Area Flying Dutch track and field team captured their respective District 9 track and field championship Thursday at the D9-AAA track and field championships held at Brookville Area High School.
Trenton Schreiber and Gideon Woelfel will advance to the PIAA Class AAA track and field championship scheduled for May 26, 27 and 28 at Shippensburg University. Also advancing will be Brian Merritt.
The St. Marys Area Lady Dutch softball team picked up two victories on Thursday afternoon at the St. Marys Area softball field as they took a doubleheader from the visiting Bradford Lady Owls. The Lady Dutch took the opening game by an 11-0 score in five innings, then won the nightcap by a 19-0 score in three innings.
The Elk County Catholic Crusaders downed the DuBois Central Catholic Cardinals 17-1 in four innings on Tuesday afternoon at Berwind Park, winning the game on a walk-off double by Ben Daghir.
Pat Brennen went the distance for the Crusaders, working all four innings and giving up one hit, walking four, and striking out five.
"I thought Pat pitched a pretty reasonable game. He pitched pretty well for four innings. We just got some breaks and took advantage of them. We got some runs across the board," said ECCHS coach Fr. Eric Vogt.
