Track: South Park's Stanley throwing it long

Written by Justin Criado on .

Justin Criado profiles South Park javelin standout Sarah Stanley.

"Most siblings look up to their older brothers or sisters, often trying to emulate them.

Sarah Stanley certainly looks up to her older brother, Bill, but he may owe her for what has become a very successful career throwing the javelin.

"She actually talked Billy into throwing javelin," South Park track coach Jeff Hufnagel explained. "She's the one who went home and was throwing the turbo-javelin [a lightweight javelin used for practice and beginner throwers], and she said it was awesome and told Billy he should try it. So she actually threw before Billy did."

Billy went on to become the PIAA champion in 2012, setting a national high school record of 246 feet, 9 inches in the process, and is now throwing at Ohio State University."

Alumni Update - Laurel Lindsay (Edinboro)

Written by Drew Karpen on .

ATLANTA, Ga. - The Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) announced its Division II Coaches' All-America team today andLindsay EUP Edinboro University graduate student Laurel Lindsay earned honorable mention honors for the second straight season. The Fighting Scots' season ended on March 3 in the PSAC Quarterfinals in a 71-63 loss at Indiana (Pa.). They went 20-8 this year with a 16-6 record in the PSAC West.

 

This is yet another prestigious award on the long list of accomplishments for Lindsay in her career. Earlier this season she garnered first team All-PSAC West honors after earning second team honors last year along with honorable mention WBCA All-American accolades.

 

Lindsay finished the season fourth for Edinboro in scoring (12.6 ppg.), second in rebounding (5.4 rpg.), and led the team with 206 assists. The assists figure is the fourth-highest total in a single season in school history. The South Park, Pa. native also led the PSAC with 7.4 assists per game, a mark that currently ranks third in all of Division II. Lindsay committed just 102 turnovers this season despite her high volume of handling the ball. She also led the Fighting Scots with 50 steals.

 

Lindsay, a South Park graduate, was also a key part in one of the best 3-point shooting teams in the nation. The guard/forward made 39-of-104 (37.5 percent) of her 3-point attempts as Edinboro is second in the nation in 3-point percentage shooting 39.5 percent from beyond the arc. The Fighting Scots 196 3-pointers made is also the second-most for a single season in school history, only behind last year's squad that made 200 3-pointers.
