"It would be easy to call 2014 a developmental year for the Beaver Area boys cross country team.

Only one of the top five starters was an upperclassman and the Bobcats did not have a runner finish in the top 15 at the WPIAL Class AA individual finals at Cooper's Lake Park.

A year later, though, those same five starters are back and could make some waves when the team heads to the WPIAL finals Oct. 29.

"It's basically the same group of guys, but they've just gotten stronger," Beaver cross country coach Steve Goldcamp said. "We didn't have any seniors last year and they bonded really well last year and they've just gotten better.""

Things are pretty much going according to script for the Beaver girls tennis team.


Not only did the Bobcats pull out the No. 1 seed in the WPIAL Class AA team tournament, they cruised into the second round with an easy, 5-0, victory over Mount Pleasant in their first match.


Now Beaver has a chance at a bit of revenge along the way.
