It was a cool and breezy fall day Monday at the Bavarian Hills Golf Course, but for the Elk County Catholic Crusader golf team, the weather and everything else was just about perfect as the Crusaders edged the Ridgway Elkers 335-336 to claim the District 9 Class AA team title.
Elk Catholic's foursome consisted of Elliott Struble, Mitchell Struble, Drew Meyer, and Jess Jaynes. The D9 team title is the first for second-year Crusader head coach George Schneider.
The St. Marys Area Lady Dutch soccer team lost a tough 1-0 contest to the Ridgway Lady Elkers Monday afternoon at the SMAHS soccer field.
The lone goal of the game came at the 30:34 mark of the first half when Ridgwayâ€™s Abbie Lampman scored from the left side, giving Ridgway the eventual only goal of the contest.
Ridgway dominated play in the first half as they kept the ball in the St. Marys half of the field. The Lady Elkers had seven shots on goal to St. Marysâ€™ one. They also had seven corner kicks in the first 40 minutes of play.
