Track: Brentwood boys shine at Cal Track Carnival

Written by Brad Everett on .

Brentwood is no WPIAL track power and had to go up against some much bigger schools, but that didn't stop the Spartans from stringing together an excellent performance at last Friday's Cal Track Carnival.

Three boys athletes from Brentwood earned first-place finishes at the event held at California University. Senior Dorian Bowie won the 100-meter dash, senior Gio Segura won the discus title, and sophomore Andrew Wilson won the triple jump.

Brentwood owned the 100 and triple jump competitions. The Spartans claimed the top three spots in both events. Bowie, junior John Gomez and freshman Aaron McPherson went 1-2-3 in the 100, while Wilson, McPherson and senior Ricky Gralish leaped to the top three spots in the triple jump.

Bowie, who was a standout on the Brentwood football team, also finished second in the 400 and fourth in the long jump. Gomez was the runner-up in the 200. Freshman John Milcic finished third in the 110 hurdles. The 400 relay team was the runner-up.


Baseball: South Feature Athlete - Brentwood’s Tanner Klein

Written by Brad Everett on .

Name: Tanner Klein
School: Brentwood
Grade: 12
Sport: Baseball
Position: Pitcher/Shortstop

Background: Brentwood could make a strong push for a playoff berth this season, and having Klein on its side is a big reason why. The Spartans aren't a very experienced bunch, well, except for Klein, a four-year starter and one of the top players in Class 2A. The Spartans are 4-0 overall and 3-0 in Section 3. Klein, a right-hander, picked up the first two section wins. He's also hit the ball well while batting third in the lineup. As a junior, Klein went 5-0 as the team's No. 2 pitcher. But when No. 1 Brandon Mayfield graduated, Klein took over the top spot on the pitching staff.

Girls Basketball: Brentwood unbeaten heading into final week of 2016

Written by Joe Koch on .

Nearly one-third into the 2016-17 season, many start to look for trends in a team's success. And, while it's early, Brentwood may have something worth watching as the new year dawns.

Following this past Thursday's 52-36 victory over host Sto-Rox that raised the Spartans' 2A, Section 2 record to 2-0, Brentwood heads into the final week of the 2016 with an overall record of 5-0. At 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Spartans meet Charleroi in the California tournament.

As impressive as the unbeaten mark, the 2A No. 3 Spartans have won all of their games by double-digit margins, and they are outscoring their opponents by a nearly two-to-one margin. They are averaging 56 points a game and yielding 28.8 points per contest.

Following the tournament, the Spartans host Springdale on Jan. 2, and they visit Northgate on Jan. 5. Both are section games. January also features a home game with Vincentian, the defending WPIAL champion in 1A.


Girls Basketball: Brentwood confirms No. 4 ranking in Class 2A

Written by Joe Koch on .

When a team is yielding less than 29 points a game, it's going to get the attention of a lot of people.

That's the case with Brentwood. The Spartans have rolled to a 3-0 record with victories over Carrick, 51-20, and Brashear, 54-40, in the Brentwood tip-off tournament, and an eye-opening 53-26 victory over Highlands this past Wednesday.

Heading into today's Class 2A Section 2 opener with Ellis School, Brentwood is averaging 52.7 points and yielding 28.7 points a game. It's too early to tell much, but a lot may be learned when the Spartans host last season's WPIAL 1A champion, Vincentian, on Jan. 12. The Royals may be 0-2, but both of those losses came against two out-of-state opponents in the She Got Game Classic in Washington, D.C. The rematch takes place on Feb. 6 at Vincentian.
