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.


Golf: Central Valley steamrolls WPIAL Class AAA girls field

Written by Joe Koch on .

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.


Girls Golf: Central Valley upholds tradition

Keith Barnes profiles the Central Valley girls golf team.

"In theory things were supposed to be different for the Central Valley girls golf team this season.

After all, the Warriors were moving up in classification and it had to be much more difficult to dominate as a team against some of the best programs in the WPIAL.

In reality, it hasn't been quite as simple to win as it was in 2013 when Central Valley took the top three spots in the WPIAL Class AA individual finals and cruised to an 82-stroke victory in the team finals on the way to a second consecutive state championship.

No, this time Central Valley could only put its four starters into the Class AAA individual championships and earn three spots in the PIAA West Regional qualifier Tuesday at Tom's Run."
