Local roundup: Lewisburg’s Caleb Leaman wins district gold in diving

Lewisburg’s Caleb Leaman became a three-time medalist in District 4 diving competition and a back-to-back district champion when he won at Bloomsburg on Saturday at the District 4 diving championships.

Leaman won the 11-dive event with a score of 359.35.

In the girls competition, Lewisburg’s Autumn Sena placed seventh with a score of 232.10.

Central Mountain’s Leisher Gugino swam the 100 breast against Altoona in 1:02.33, setting a new school record in the process. The Central Mountain boys went 4 for 4 in events they competed in, and the girls team won, 93-72.

Gugino also won the 200 free. Parker Orndorf also went 2 for 2 in the pool, winning the 100 free and 100 back.

The girls’ team got out to an early lead, and then had to have some great swims in the second half of the meet. Maddie Bair, McKenna Fox, Ana Persun, and Hannah Brian started things off by recording their best swim of the season in the 200 medley relay, finishing in 2:02.00. That time not only won the event, it qualified the team to move on to next week’s District 6 Championship meet in State College.

In girls basketball, Sofia Casella hit two clutch free throws in the final seconds, helping South Williamsport seal a hard-fought 36-32 overtime victory against Canton. Claudia Green scored a game-high 15 points and South concluded its regular season 11-1. Piper Minier hit three 3-pointers and scored 11 points. Aislyn Williams scored 13 points for Canton and Reagan Kelly added 10.

Rachel Lorson scored seven points and Jersey Shore played good defense but Line Mountain rallied from a second-quarter deficit and defeated it, 38-28. Aubrey Schilling added 6 points for the Bulldogs who allowed just 14 first-half points.

Cierra Charles scored 12 points, but it wasn’t enough as Muncy fell at home to Millville in a close game, 27-26. The Quakers outscored the Indians in the fourth quarter, 12-8, to escape with the victory.

Bell Hitesman and Arianna Copeland both scored five points.

Northeast Bradford beat North Penn-Liberty, 70-45. Elizabeth Ritchie scored 13 points and Eva Rice added 11. NEB was led by Maisie Neuber’s 36 points.

In boys basketball, Luke Kaiser and Cam Fetterman delivered strong performances in a game Hughesville was hit with foul trouble, combining for 25 points as the Spartans defeated Line Mountain, 66-53 in their first of two games. Kaiser scored a career-high 13 points and hit three 3-pointers while Fetterman drained four 3-pointers and scored a career-high 12 points. Kaiser and Mikey Dylina sparked the defense and Dylina grabbed 10 rebounds while Nick Trevouledes scored a team-high 17 points.

Mason Sheesley scored 17 points, AJ Bieber added 15 and Ethan Hartman scored 11 as Warrior Run defeated Hughesville, 54-44, in the Spartans’ second game.

Dylan Bieber scored 15 against the Spartans.

Logan Almeida scored 17 points as Montgomery ended its regular season on a three-game winning streak and defeated Millville, 42-34. Montgomery (9-10) completed its first season sweep of Millville of the 2000s as Austin Kuhn (nine) and Coltin Hans (eight) grabbed 17 rebounds. Maurice Walters added 6 rebounds and Montgomery concluded its best regular season since 2010.

Hanief Clay scored 18 points but District 4 Class AAAA top seed Danville defeated St. John Neumann, 80-57. David Hill scored 15 points and Davion Hill 13 for the Knights (14-3). Danville won its 12th straight game, closing on an 18-7 run as KJ Riley scored 25 points, Jagger Dressler 23 and Dante Harward 20.

North Penn-Liberty defeated Canton, 54-48. Isaiah Niemczyk scored 18 points for Canton and Tyler Jannone added 13. The Mounties received a 17-point performance from Noah Spencer, who trained five 3-pointers. Brandon Thompson had a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double with four blocks and three steals.

After having four weeks off, Bucknell returned to acton at Sojka Pavilion in men’s basketball, but the Bison fell to American, 78-71. Deuce Turner scored 21 points for the Bison (4-5, 4-5 Patriot League).

Walter Ellis scored 13 and Xander Rice added 10. Paul Newman led the team with nine rebounds, six of which came from the defensive end.

Bucknell entered on a four-game winning streak, but this was the first game since Jan. 31.

The Bison led for nearly half the game and it was a one-point game with just 90 seconds to play.

The Lock Haven University women’s cross country team swept the top three individual finishes and the Bald Eagles powered their way to victory as they hosted the 2021 Winter XC Invite. The meet marked the opening event for the team’s spring semester season and the Bald Eagles wasted little time in getting to work with some fast times this afternoon.

Behind the 1-2-3 finish, LHU recorded 37 points and soared by the five-team field. Today’s event was held on Lower Creek Road in Castanea, Pennsylvania.

Standout Laurel Moyer, a Central Mountain graduate, bested the 47-women field in the 5K road race with a time of 17:35.1.

On the men’s side, Zack Skrabski led the way for The Haven as he finished sixth overall with a time of 15:33.7.
