Youth mat

Local members of North East’s Raigin’ Raisins wrestling club competed at the 33rd Annual Hardhat Tournament held Saturday in Meadville.

Over 300 wrestlers from Ohio and Northwestern Pennsylvania attended the event.

Russell’s Logan Jaquay was a champion in the 9-10 year-old, 65-pound weight class at the competition. Younger brother Gannon Jaquay finished third in the 7-8 year-old, 65-pound division.

College news

Eisenhower High School graduate and Penn State Behrend junior men’s soccer team member Garrett Fiscus has been named to the 2012 Capital One Academic All-District Men’s Soccer Team.

The junior midfielder was named to the first team and will move onto the All-American ballot.

Fiscus was instrumental in the midfield, starting every game and helping the Lions to their best start in program history.

The two-time Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) All-Academic choice tallied three assists on the season.

Fiscus was selected to the All-AMCC third-team a year ago and was the team’s Most Improved Player as a freshman.

Correction

The score of Saturday’s freshmen boys basketball game between Warren and Central Tech was actually 38-21, not 38-31 as was published in Monday’s Times Observer.

In addition, Andrew Gignac scored four points for the Dragons in the Warren victory.

His name was inadvertently omitted from Monday’s edition.
