’Dogs fall to Trojans

ERIE — It wasn’t a victory. But it was a scrap. And that will do for now for the Meadville girls volleyball team, which fell to non-region opponent McDowell 22-25, 25-14, 25-22, 25-16 in their season-opening dual match on Tuesday.

“I thought we had a good showing,” said MASH head coach Tammy Webber. “We had a not-so-hot weekend. I was a little skeptical. But (on Tuesday) our game scores didn’t reflect the tightness of the match. The kids showed a lot of character.”

Leading Meadville’s offense was Emily Allen with nine kills. Ellen Mook scored seven kills with seven digs. Cadi McCoy tallied seven kills, six digs and a pair of aces. Jordan Lynn chipped in four kills.

Katie Newman had 27 assists. Alysha Kelyman brought up 14 digs. Mallory Jackson had seven digs. And Brittney Morris notched two aces.

In the JV match, McDowell won it 25-17, 21-25, 15-3.

Note: Thursday’s match between Meadville at General McLane has been moved from Meadville to McLane High School. JV starts at 6 p.m., followed by the varsity.

Steiner nets NCAC laurel

CLEVELAND, Ohio — After taking first place in Saturday’s season-opening Bill Sudeck Invitational, Allegheny sophomore and Meadville native Logan Steiner was named the North Coast Athletic Conference Runner of the Week.

For Steiner, the 2012 NCAC Newcomer of the Year, it marked his first career collegiate win, as he broke the tape in a time of 19:44.65 in the 6K race, hosted by Cleveland’s Case Western Reserve. His victory capped a dominant performance for the Gators, ranked 22nd in the preseason U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches’ Association poll. Allegheny won the Sudek Invitational for the fifth consecutive season, and saw four runners finish in the top 12, and seven in the top 20.

This marks the first Runner of the Week honor for Steiner, who burst onto the scene with a memorable freshman season, as he was the top rookie finisher at the NCAC championship, the NCAA Mideast Regional championship, and the NCAA Division III National Championship, where he took 36th, one spot away from All-America status.

  • Teen doping Survey: Teens experimenting with HGH on the rise

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
