Track: Bishop Canevin sophomore setting the pace

Written by Justin Criado on .

Bishop Canevin sophomore Becca Volz qualified for the PIAA championships in cross country, and looks to be one of the top performers in the 1,600 meter run during the track season on a team that's slim in numbers and looking for standouts.

Volz finished 13th at the Mt. Lebanon Invitational on March 21 to start the year.

"The 2014-15 Bishop Canevin hockey season might be best described as bittersweet.

It was bitter in that following a Penguins Cup championship season, the Crusaders could only win 11 regular-season games.

It was sweet in the fact that an undermanned team was able to advance to the Penguins Cup semifinals before bowing to powerful Erie Cathedral Prep, 8-2, on Monday at the Island Sports Center.

"We probably maximized where we went," Crusaders coach Kevin Zielmanski said. "I didn't think this was a team that would play for the Penguins Cup.""


Hockey: Crusaders’ reign comes to an end

Written by Ryan Riordan on .

For the first 7:23 of Monday night’s Class AA Penguins Cup semifinal, Bishop Canevin hung around with top seed Erie Cathedral Prep.

But after that, the Ramblers were too strong.

Richard Vicary and Ben Eliason each scored twice as Erie Cathedral Prep took down the Crusaders, 8-2, in a rematch of last season’s Penguins Cup final. Bishop Canevin won last year’s playoff matchup, 1-0.

Eliason equaled the total of goals scored in last year’s final just 48 seconds in, but Bishop Canevin’s Jacob Ondrejko answered a little over two minutes later. The teams traded goals within 20 seconds of each other later in the period, but from then on the Ramblers dominated. Erie Cathedral Prep scored two more goals in the first period and four in the third to pull away for the win.

Bishop Canevin finishes its season 11-10.

School: Bishop Canevin
Grade: 12

Background: Kelly has become the Crusaders’ clutch performer recently. He scored the overtime game-winner in the regular-season finale against Chartiers Valley, then did the same in a 7-6 overtime victory against Hampton in the PIHL Class AA Penguins Cup quarterfinals Tuesday. The overtime goal against Hampton was his second of the contest and gives him five for the season. 


Girls Basketball: Canevin gets game close to home in first round

Written by Joe Koch on .

A nice consolation prize for being the WPIAL Class AA girls basketball tournament runner-up is a first-round PIAA game not far from home.

That's what faces Bishop Canevin following this past Friday's 51-35 loss to Section 3-AA rival Seton-LaSalle in the championship game at Pitt's Petersen Events Center.

The 16-10 Crusaders meet Cambridge Springs, the third-place team from District 10, at 6 p.m. Friday at Canon-McMillan High School.

Canevin saw a manageable deficit go out of control in the second quarter against the Rebels. They were outscored 13-2 and trailed at halftime, 28-10. Canevin cut the deficit twice to 13 points in the third quarter, but that's as close as the Crusaders got to the Rebels.
