• In high school wrestling, Warrior Run took second place at the Gettysburg Duals. No additional information or results were made available.

• Freshman Justice Smith scored over 20 points for the third straight game to lead the Mansfield men’s basketball team who fell on the road in dramatic fashion to West Chester in the closing seconds, 99-97 in PSAC action.

The Mountaineers (0-9, 1-14 PSAC) take their second straight PSAC opponent to the wire after falling in the closing seconds to Shippensburg University on Wednesday. West Chester improves to 8-3 overall and 3-3 in the PSAC.

Sophomore Marcus Friend found senior Eli Alvin for the go-ahead layup with 20 seconds to go, but West Chester sunk three free throws in the closing seconds and got the stops they needed to escape with the victory.

Justice Smitih scored 27 for Mansfield and Jaz Farrell and Friend both added 17. Loyalsock graduate Idris Ali scored seven, had three rebounds and an assist.

• Six Lycoming College wrestlers placed at the Middle Atlantic Conference Championships at Messiah, led by third-place finishes from both junior heavyweight Connor Fulmer and sophomore 197-pounder Gable Crebs, a Montoursville graduate.

Sophomore 141-pounder Wiley Kahler and freshman 149-pounder Logan Bartlett, a Lewisburg graduate, each finished fifth. Freshman 125-pounder Kaden Majcher, a Warrior Run graduate, and freshman 141-pounder Chase Chapman each took sixth.

Fulmer saw a season-opening 29-match winning streak, tied for the fifth-longest in program history, come to an end in the semifinals, when he fell via major decision to Messiah’s Carter Urich. He began the day with first-period pins over York’s Brock Hofler and King’s David White and ended the day with a pin of Wilkes’ Nevin Rauch and a 10-1 major decision over Alvernia’s Palmer Rodenhaber, ranked sixth in the Southeast Region’s latest rankings, in the third place match. Fulmer’s 31-1 overall record make him the 37th wrestler in program history to reach 30 wins in a season.

Lock Haven won two matches at Bloomsburg, defeating California Baptist (37-11) and Bloomsburg (34-9).

Against California Baptist, No. 27 Anthony Noto won by fall in 2:55 at 125 pounds. Ashton Eyler won by major decision at 165 and Tyler Stotzfus won by decision at 174.

Against Bloomsburg, Noto earned a major decision win over Bronson Garber. Ben Barton won at 157 via decision, and Eyler won by tech fall, 16-1, 7:00, at 165.

• At the Susquehanna Invitational, Lock Haven’s women’s track and field team had a lot of success with a number of PSAC championship qualifying marks. Cadie Kiser and Morgan Perry took first and second, respectively, in the 5,000-meter run in times of 18:39.62 and 18:40.36.

Anna Manley took second in the 400 in 1:02.57. Megan Manglavitti had a strong showing in the weight throw, taking second with a toss of 13.81 meters. Billie Jo Bollinger tied her season-best in the 60 hurdles with a time of 9.55.

The Bald Eagles’ men’s team had success as well as Ryan Miller, Matthew Muthler and Gage Krall had strong showings.

Freshmen Aliyah Serrano, Abigail Taylor and David Wootten all picked up their first colligate event victories to highlight a solid Mansfield University track and field team showing at the Al Hall Freedom Games.

Despite at an unusually cold Mike S. Zafirovski Sports and Recreation Dome, the Mounties made the most of this preview of the PSAC Indoor Championship facility.

Serrano took the top spot in the 200-meter dash, crossing the line with a PSAC qualifying 26.01 time. That ties her for the fourth-fastest indoor 200 in program history. She was joined by juniors Skylar Brown and Nadia Simpson, who finished with times of 27.95 and 28.98, respectively.
