Tussey Mountain 68 No. 9 Southern Fulton 37

SAXTON, Pa. - Southern Fulton never fully recovered from a 17-5 first-quarter deficit Monday in a Sideling Hill League loss to Tussey Mountain.

"We got out to a slow start, but we got the lead down to nine at half and seven with about four minutes left in the third quarter," Southern Fulton coach Mark Mellott said. "They're just too good for that. If we'd gotten off to a better start, we would've had a better chance."

Sam Cain had 16 points, three blocks and four steals for the Indians (15-4, 10-2), who missed a chance to move one-half game behind Tussey Mountain (16-3, 13-0) in the league standings.

Candace Bard grabbed 11 rebounds for Southern Fulton.

"I never imagined coming in here that I'd break this record," Kolb said. "I was realistic, but as I got closer, it gained some attention."

Shipp's Escamilla, Lacy honored

SHIPPENSBURG, Pa. - Shippensburg University track and field athletes Adam Escamilla and Tunisia Lacy were given Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference player of the week honors.

The mark broke the Shippensburg school indoor record of 53-0, set by Glenn Thompson in 1984. The performance also leads all conference competitors and provisionally qualifies him for the NCAA Division II national championships.

Lacy, from Chambersburg, is a three-time PSAC Field Athlete of the Week. She won three events at the Bison Open, recording a triple jump leap of 38-0 1/4, topping her previous conference best. She also won the long jump (18-2 1/2) as well as the 60-meter hurdles (9.05 seconds).
