*Tuesday afternoon the Bobcat cross country teams traveled to Fairfield to compete against Dallastown, Kennard Dale, Littlestown, and the host Green Knights in the regular season finale. Ben Kelly, Noah Hake, and Brody McElwain battled hard in the lead pack with the top two runners for Dallastown for most of the race, but the Wildcat duo pulled away late to help secure a victory and division championship for the Dallastown boys. Seniors Robert Yoka, Mitchell Millis, and Parkes Harman joined DJ Haas and Josh Mckenzie in scoring for the Bobcats, who won three times on the day.
The Northeastern boys finished the league meet season with a record of 18-2, their best team record in eight years. They have also qualified for the district championships on Oct. 29 at Big Spring.
In the girls’ race Maddie Warrender also battled for the lead with two of the best runners in the district, and finished third overall to help lead the team to three victories and to help the girls team qualify for the district championships with an 11-9 record. Also scoring were Micaela Bradley, Rose Rush, Sophie Dekker, Destiny Lehman, Emille Baskette, and Emily Rau.
The teams return to Gettysburg next Tuesday for the League Championship Meet.
*Up next was boys soccer as they were away to take on South Western at 7:00 and they played a hard fought, close match, but ended up losing 3-2. Girls volleyball was also at 7:00 as they were at home and took on Gettysburg. They brought a challenge to Gettysburg but ended up losing 3-0. Girls soccer was also at home and faced South Western at 7:30. They played their heart out and vanquished against South Western with a final score of 4-1.
*Yesterday, field hockey took on Dallastown away at 7:00 and kept their heads held high. They fought well, but lost 7-0.
*Here’s an update on the tennis team from a couple of days ago: The Lady Bobcat Tennis team concluded a very successful season as both doubles teams played hard and came up short against two good Red Lion and Central teams.
Evonne Qiu and Courtnee Hoff did the best they could against a solid Red Lion team but came up short in their match.
Brynn MacDonald and Lindsey Myers took on the number two seeded team from Central and played extremely well with a variety of great shots and pushed Central very hard before losing to them.
The team will certainly miss the seniors and the leadership they provided and are preparing for next year with their returning players.
*Today we have 3 games scheduled, so let’s get to those. First in the day, field hockey will be away to take on Greencastle-Antrim at 4:00. Later in the day, girls soccer will be away to take on Spring Grove at 7:00 while boys soccer will be home to take on Spring Grove half an hour later at 7:30.
