  • SPORTVIEW: District 10 game times are hurting student-athletes

    HOW LONG are school boards and administrations going to put up with District 10 and its ridiculous decisions at times?
    We ask this after seeing the times of the boys basketball playoff games Tuesday night.
    The district has scheduled double-headers with the first game at 7 p.m. and the second game at 8:30.
    That is insane. They expect high school kids to travel from here to Edinboro or Meadville and teams from the north to come down here for 8:30 games on a school night?

  • 20th title WRESTLING NOTEBOOK: Reynolds, Greenville send big squads to regions

    The Reynolds High Raiders certainly have a sense of history when it comes to wrestling. Since the program began, no team has had more success.

  • A leg up Reynolds seeks 20th D-10 title

    The Reynolds and Greenville wrestling teams each bring all 14 wrestlers into the District 10 Class AA Championships this weekend at Sharon High School and will battle it out with Fort LeBoeuf for the team title.
    Reynolds, which defeated both Greenville and LeBoeuf in duals this season, is the favorite to cop its 20th team crown since team points were first counted in 1981. But a lot of things can happen with the number of talented matmen who will compete for one of six places to advance to next weekend’s regional tourney.

    A Reynolds fan posed an interesting question Saturday at the Section 2-AA Wrestling Tournament at Sharon High School:
    “Are we that good or are the rest of the teams down some this year?”
    Whatever the answer — which could be definitively determined over the next two weekends — the Raiders certainly dominated the competition at sections and will send all 14 wrestlers to the District 10 AA Championships next weekend at Sharon. The two four finishers in each weight advance.
