Boys Basketball: Chartiers Valley takes over section lead

Written by Brad Everett on .

Chartiers Valley is in first place in its section.

In other words, it's business as usual for the Colts, who are in familiar territory. They've won at least a share of the section title five years in a row.

Sporting an overall record of 11-3, Chartiers Valley stands alone atop Class 5A Section 2 with a 5-1 record. Chartiers Valley trailed Mars by one game heading into last week's play, but the Planets dropped two games to fall to 5-2. Hampton is also 5-2, while Moon is 4-2.

Chartiers Valley has won three straight section games since its only section loss, 72-66, at Mars. The Colts edged Moon, 57-55, before coming alive offensively in home wins against West Allegheny (91-37) and Montour (90-81). The Colts lost a non-section game at Mt. Lebanon on Saturday, but hope to bounce back tonight when they travel to Moon for a big section game.

Hockey: Chartiers Valley meets Baldwin tonight in key matchup

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Chartiers Valley is tied with South Fayette for first place in the Class 1A West Division and has a game-in-hand on the Lions.

Baldwin (7-3-1), however, has played one less game than the Colts and only trail them by one point.

It will be interesting to see how things shake out tonight when the two teams meet in a battle for first place at 6:40 p.m. at Ice Castle. Baldwin won the first meeting on Oct. 10, 4-3, when Paul Knerr scored two late goals to pull out the win for the Highlanders.

This time, Chartiers Valley comes into the game after winning consecutive games and is tied with Thomas Jefferson for the divisional lead with 63 goals scored.


Wrestling: All-Time Teams - Chartiers Valley

Written by Ken Wunderley on .

Southwestern Pennsylvania has been a hotbed for high school wrestling since the WPIAL held its first tournament in 1936. The Sports Town website will honor the WPIAL's best wrestlers of all-time during the 2016-17 season. Wrestling Historian Ken "Stats" Wunderley, with the help of former Mt. Lebanon coach Bill Lewis, will pick an All-Time Team for 61 high schools from the WPIAL.

The All-Time Teams will feature the best wrestlers from those schools. We will feature 6 high schools each Wednesday on Sports Town for 10 weeks during the season. The All-Time lists reflect high school accomplishments only. College and international accomplishments were not considered.


Hockey: Chartiers Valley uses strong offense to jump into first place

Written by Keith Barnes on .

Maybe Chartiers Valley is for real after all.

Heading into the holiday break, the Colts (7-4-0) were in sole possession of first place in the Class 1A West Division, one point ahead of Baldwin and two in front of Montour, Thomas Jefferson and South Fayette.

Maybe the break came at the right time for Chartiers Valley. The team had lost two of its last three, including a 6-3 defeat at the hands of last place Wheeling Park.

One thing the Colts have been able to is score as they have 58 goals in 11 games, led by Alexander Evans with 15. Goaltender Brandon Evans also has all seven of the team's wins.
