Golf: Half of Class AAA girls qualifers from Central Valley

Written by Joe Koch on .

Nine golfers competed at the Class AAA Western Regional Girls Individual Championship at Tom's Run Golf Course in Blairsville, and the six players advancing to the PIAA Class AAA Individual Girls Championship are from WPIAL schools.

Three of the six are from Central Valley. Those three golfers -- Amanda Scala, Mady McDanel and Alex Bozich -- will have an extended stay in York. After competing in the two-day individual championship that begins Monday and winds up on Tuesday, those three golfers will team up with teammates Megan Santia and Krista Sudar and compete in the PIAA Class AAA team championship on Wednesday.

Scala is the only senior on the team, and she played well on Tuesday, placing third in the regional championship with a 7-over-par round of 79. McDanel, a junior, was two strokes behind with an 81. Bozich, a sophomore, tied for fifth with a 10-over-par round of 82.


Golf: Central Valley seeks PIAA Class AAA girls title

Written by Joe Koch on .

Boasting one of the top Class AA programs in the state in previous years, the Central Valley High girls golf team chose to take on new opponents in a more demanding classification this year.

The victories might not have been as lopsided, but they were just as plentiful as the Warriors swept through section play with an unbeaten record and went on to win the WPIAL Class AAA girls team championship on Oct. 9 at Cedarbrook Golf Club's Red Course with 316 strokes.

Peters Township, a team the Warriors defeated in the regular season, was second with 336 strokes.

The victory vaulted the Warriors into Wednesday's PIAA Class AAA team championship tournament at York's Heritage Hills Resort.

Girls Soccer: Central Valley navigates roller-coaster season to reach playoffs

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

It was not as easy as previous seasons when Central Valley steamrolled basically every team in its path in Section 3-AA, but the Warriors braved the storm this season, navigated a roller-coaster season full of ups and downs and reached the playoffs. Central Valley watched its perfect section record, first established in 2010 when the program formed, end back on Sept. 17 at Hopewell. After that things only got harder. Central Valley tied Blackhawk and lost to Quaker Valley and Montour to be knocked out of contention for a section title and nearly the postseason. But the Warriors righted the ship and earned huge back-to-back victories over Beaver Area and Hopewell to finish the section schedule strong. Abby Delostrino scored twice in Central Valley's crucial 4-3 win against Hopewell. Central Valley (9-4-2, 7-3-2) finish third in Section 3-AA behind Montour (14-2, 11-1) and Hopewell (10-5, 9-3). Central Valley may be one of the more dangerous third-place teams in recent memory.

Central Valley girls golf coach Larry Milosh had little doubt that his Warriors would perform well on the Class AAA level.

Milosh's beliefs were confirmed as his team won all of its section matches and earned its first Class WPIAL AAA girls golf team championship with a total of 316 this past Thursday at the finals held on Cedarbrook Golf Club's Red Course.

Three Warriors shot rounds below 80 with junior standout Maddy McDanel leading the way with a 75, a score that led the field. Sophomore Alex Bozich and senior Amanda Scala were next with rounds of 78 and 79, respectively. Sophomore Krista Sudar and junior Megan Santia shot 84 and 97, respectively.

The victories came on the heels of the three WPAL Division II/Class AA team championships the Warriors won in previous seasons.
