The regular seasons are all but wrapped up (Girls Volleyball and Boys Soccer have a couple games left). Now, the Wolves are waiting to see how many qualify for playoffs. It is looking like it is very possible that the Wolves will have the most teams in SJCA fall sports history claiming District VI playoff bids. Keep an eye out for the results, which will be posted over the next few days! Good luck to all of our Wolves!

This year, the Turkey Trot will benefit SJCA’s Cross Country and Track and Field programs, so our Wolves hope that everyone will come out and participate.

The boys fell yesterday to Belleville, but they are hoping to grab a win this Thursday in an away game against Harrisburg Academy at 4:00 p.m.
Girls soccer finished out the regular season with a win at home against Northern Cambria with a score of 12-1. Riley Marflak, Clare Marsh, Maggie Mangene, Sarah Watkins, Taylor Wright and Meg Bolich scored goals. The girls are hoping to go to playoffs with a record of 4-5.
The boys are making their second straight playoff appearance after a great showing against Rockwood in Regionals. The boys made a great showing, led by Jack Mangene with a 73, Matt Steyers with a 77, Ryan Peachey with an 81 and RJ Marsh with an 84. The boys will look to grab a state title next Wednesday at Heritage Hills Golf Resort in York. They would really appreciate your support.
Jack Mangene navigated the tough conditions and made it to states as an individual while Matt Steyers just fell short. Jack will be competing next Monday and Tuesday at Heritage Hills for an individual title as well. Good luck to Jack!
This week, the girls bested both Moshannon Valley and Sugar Valley in their pursuit of their first playoff appearance in school history! Their win against Moshannon Valley was the first win against their program in 3 seasons, so congratulations to them! The team also honored seniors Anna Griggs and Michaela Maynard this past Tuesday during their game against Sugar Valley. Let’s thank the seniors for all of their hard work, and let’s also wish the team luck as they continue to push for playoffs!
Cross country is off this week as they prepare for District 6 Championships on October 27th. Come out and support them on Saturday!
