PREP WRESTLING



HAVERFORD, Pa. - Mercersburg Academy had seven placewinners and finished fourth out of 43 schools Saturday in the Pennsylvania Independent Schools state tournament.

"We finished a little higher than we thought we would," Mercersburg coach Rick Hendrickson said. "This is a tough tournament, and our veteran guys wrestled well."

It's the first time since 1999 that Mercersburg finished as high as fourth and also had as many as seven placewinners.

Seniors Adam Rook (130 pounds) and Nate Fochtman (275 pounds) both finished second. Rook fell to Malvern Prep's Nick Salvo in double-overtime on a rideout after wrestling to a 2-2 deadlock in regulation.

MEN'S BASKETBALL



CUMBERLAND, Md. - Shawn Wiggins had 25 points and Allegany Community College opened up a 22-point first-half lead and held off a second-half rally to defeat Hagerstown Community College 95-71 on Saturday night.

"I wanted it to be (closer)," Hawks coach Kenny Keyes said. "I wanted to keep it close and win it in end, but we couldn't keep it close."

Rex Kenley had 16 points - 13 in the first half - and Andre Brooks added 13 for HCC (13-12), which cut the lead to 14 at halftime and down to eight early in the second half before Allegany (24-2) went inside and muscled back into a comfortable lead.

"They just oversized us, outmuscled us," Keyes said. "They miss (a shot) and they get it back. We didn't box out."

Kenley had six assists and Brooks had seven rebounds for the Hawks, which made just 17 of 31 free throw attempts, including 10 of 18 in the first half.

"The free-throw line again killed us," Keyes said. "If we make those free throws, we were right in the game."
