For Conneaut, it was all about resolve. The Eagles had a 2-0 match lead and Maplewood clawed back. The Eagles then had four match points in the fifth set and the Tigers sent back the first three. Yet, CASH had the resolve to stay composed. Finally up 18-17 in the fifth set, the ball found Ca…
Members of the Meadville girls volleyball team had a look about them as coach Tim Schleicher pelted balls at them during pregame warmups. They smiled and laughed as they took turns diving to the floor to make plays.
Now four weeks into the football season, teams have shown what their identities are going to be. Some love to run the ball, others are pass-happy. Some teams like to play fast while others tend to grind it out on the ground.
Okay, so the Browns’ 23-3 victory over the Jets on Monday Night Football was not an artistic success. But a win is a win, and that which we call an NFL win by any other name would smell as sweet (apologies to Romeo & Juliet).

Just over 50 years ago, the 1968 Allegheny Gators football team was a force to be reckoned with. The Gators only dropped one game to Carnegie Mellon en route to a 7-1 season. That season’s team now enters the Allegheny College Athletic Hall of Fame on Friday, and one local boy will go in with them.

LINESVILLE — Normally when a team fumbles the ball three times in a half and spends most of the first quarter in its own end, the score winds up lopsided. Well, Conneaut made sure of that, but not in the way you’d expect. The Eagles withstood three early turnovers, and pulled away on the sco…
UNION CITY — Take a look at the box score for Friday night’s game between Cochranton and Union City and you’ll see that Bears running back Logan Kesselring had a big night carrying the ball. So did Caleb Stull, another U.C. rusher. So did Tallin Henry (another running back) and Austin Jaquit…

CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS — The girls volleyball matchup with Corry could be seen as a barometer for the Blue Devils. Corry is one of the top teams in District 10 and Class 2A in Pennsylvania. The Beavers showcased their prowess throughout this match.
In Week 4, many of the local teams are back in region play where each game just seems to mean a bit more. There’s familiarity between the schools and the rivalries sometimes run deep. We’re all in store for another strong week of high school football. Here’s a look at this weekend’s games:
CONNEAUT LAKE — It was a sweltering day on the links as Region 3 reconvened for its fourth mega match this season. Last time out, Saegertown took hold of the region. The Panthers were frustrated a bit on the course this time around, but still managed to take another mega match and expand on …

SAEGERTOWN — Cambridge Springs kept its hot start going on Wednesday afternoon. Even a rain delay couldn’t stop the Blue Devils from scoring goals.
