DUNCANNON - Greenwood's Scott Kerstetter was just a hair shy of retiring a 24-year-old school record in the 400-meter dash Saturday at the Stan Morgan Invitational.
Monday, when Greenwood traveled to Susquenita for the Perry County Tournament, Saturday was just a bad dream.
With a time of 51.88, Kerstetter not only landed first in the event - one of his three first place finishes - but beat the school record of 51.90.
"I thought he would get the school record last year, but things didn't work out from an injuries perspective, but he got it this year," Greenwood coach Tom Magill said.
The boys team finished first at the meet with a team score of 95. After Kerstetter, other standouts for the boys included Hunter Miller's triple, including a personal best in the 1,600; Gabe Schroff's wins in the 100-meter dash and the high jump, in which he scored a personal best of 5 feet, 8 inches in addition to his personal best in the 300 hurdles; and Dillon Meehan's personal best throw of 48 feet three and 1/2 inches for first place in the shot put.
On the girls team, Erin Zeiders had four first place finishes, including personal bests in the 200 and the long jump; Emily Fisher's first in the the discus, first in the shot put with a personal best of 34 feet eight and 3/4 inches and third in the javelin, which was also a personal best; plus Hattie Kuhns' triple in the 100, 400 and 4x400.
Overall, the girls team scored 111 points for first place.
Greenwood (Boys: 9-1, 7-1; Girls: 8-2, 6-2) travels to the Tri-Valley League Meet at West Perry High School on Wednesday.
West Perry 16, Juniata 1 (4 innings)
ELLIOTSBURG - Juniata took a 1-0 lead over non-league baseball opponent West Perry on Monday on a Chase Rupert RBI, but the Indians' fate was quickly reversed after West Perry scored 16 runs in the remainder of the game to drop Juniata, 16-1, in four innings.
"It was a 16-1 loss, but we did put the ball in play. We only struck out two times," Juniata coach Nick Beward said, who was also quick to identify the top of the second as the turning point of the game.
In the second, West Perry plated seven runners, taking advantage of a few Juniata errors to stretch out the inning.
"I stress that over and over. You give a team extra outs, it's going to come back to haunt you," Beward said.
Juniata (3-13, 3-9) hosts Millersburg today.
Montoursville 9, Midd-West 8
BEAVER SPRINGS - Midd-West played catchup against Montoursville twice, but the pesky visitors got a two-run homer in the sixth to put the Heartland Conference baseball game in the books, 9-8.
"We came back and made it a ball game," Midd-West coach Ron Flood said. "We had a man on second base in the seventh and couldn't get him in. But we gave them a couple too with our errors."
Hunter Shuff had a homer and drove in four runs for the Mustangs.
Midd-West (8-8) travels to Milton Wednesday.
Mount Union 6, Tyrone 2
MOUNT UNION - After an injury to starting catcher Boomer Brown over the weekend, the Mount Union baseball team was required to do some shuffling around on the field to fill his spot.
Monday, after the Trojans' 6-2 non-conference win over Tyrone, it appeared that shuffling around was no problem.
In the game Cole Boozel went 1-for-3 with three RBIs and a two-run homer - the first homer Mount Union has had this season at home - starting pitcher Darrian Stapleton went the distance for the win and the defense stood strong behind him to put Mount Union's record at 13-4.
"We capitalized on the opportunities that we had, and really had superb defense," Mount Union coach Nick Imperioli said. "I was very pleased and very impressed with how we played tonight."
Mount Union completes its Inter-County Conference schedule today when it travels to West Branch, and is scheduled to have two more regular season games before the District 6 Class AA tournament begins.
Hollidaysburg 5, Mount Union 1
HOLLIDAYSBURG - For a team that normally strings together plenty of hits in a game, Mount Union softball had an off day Monday when the Trojans only managed one run on two hits in their 5-1 loss to non-conference opponent Hollidaysburg.
Mount Union's one run occurred in the top of the fourth, when Liza Feagley reached on an error then teammate Marissa Aurand brought her home with an RBI single.
Mount Union coach Matt Fiscus said some of the frustration from the team's loss to Everett over the weekend carried into Monday's game.
"Some carry over from Friday, we didn't come out sharp. Hopefully we can get it turned around tomorrow against West Branch," he said.
This game against West Branch is home today with a 4:15 p.m. start. Mount Union (13-4) will honor its seniors today.
Fannett-Metal 14, Greenwood 1 (5 innings)
METAL - Greenwood scored one run on three hits and struck out eight times to Fannett-Metal's Blaire Louthers as the Wildcats lost the non-league game 14-1 in five innings Monday.
Greenwood's one run was scored in the top of the first when Katie Osborne reached on an error, Brooke Louden advanced her with a single then Chelsea Hicks came through with an RBI single to bring Osborne home.
Other than that, Greenwood struggled to put runners on base against Louthers.
"(Louther's) a dominant pitcher. She's thrown the hardest out of anyone that we've seen yet to this point," Greenwood coach Troy Gantt said.
Greenwood (3-8, 3-6) travels to Halifax today.
