Freshman Scott Fenton, of Dickson City, led all scorers with 23 points and pulled down 13 rebounds. The Wildcats now are 2-15 overall and 2-6 in the Penn State University Athletic Conference.

Casey Braun, of Hughesville, tallied 12 points and 10 rebounds while Kierstin Steer, of South Williamsport, added 11 points in a win that improves the team’s record to 2-15 overall.

Wrestling On Saturday at the Jamestown Community College Jayhawk Open Tournament, sophomore Tyler Myers, of Centre Hall, placed third in the 157 weight class. Nine Wildcats competed with Myers the only place finisher. “We saw some really good competition,” head coach Schuyler Frey said. “We wrestled tough and some of our guys were only a move or position away from placing.” Myers went 4-1 on the day with two pins.
