The Hazleton Standard-Speaker - - SPORTS - STAFF RE­PORT

In an ef­for t to raise breast cancer aware­ness, the Crest­wood girls’ vol­ley­ball team held a “Dig Pink” night for its Wy­oming Val­ley Con­fer­ence match against Nan­ti­coke on Thurs­day. The Comets’ Neha Met­gud is shown bump­ing the ball in front of her team­mates. Nan­ti­coke won 3-0

For the first time in pro­gram his­tory, the Crest­wood golf team is headed to the state cham­pi­onships.

Se­nior Shane An­gle shot an 84 and was medal­ist in the Comets’ 354-390 win against Selinsg rove in Thurs­day’s District 2-4 Class 3A sub­re­gional cham­pi­onship at Ea­gles Mere Coun­try Club in Sullivan County.

“The scores sure weren’t in­dica­tive of our type of play,” said Crest­wood head coach Mark Jarolen, who has coached the golf team since it was first es­tab­lished in 1986 and con­firmed this will be its first state cham­pi­onship ap­pear­ance.

“It was bru­tal out there. I had a mar­shal, and it rained the whole time. The course was soak­ing wet. I’m very sur­prised we played it. It was tough, it was dif­fi­cult — and Ea­gles Mere is a dif­fi­cult golf course. So the scores were high, but I give the play­ers a lot of credit.”

Count­ing to­ward Crest­wood’s score of 354 in ad­di­tion to An­gle were Drew Barno (87), C.J. Bono (89) and Jeremy Harper (94). Olivia Don­nini shot 104 in place of se­nior Mike Golden, who Jarolen said did not play due to ill­ness.

“It’s nice for me, but more im­por­tantly, it’s for the play­ers,” Jarolen said. “They’re the ones that work so hard and they de­served it. But I’m hav­ing a good time, that’s for sure.”

Next up, Crest­wood is one of six teams play­ing for the PIAA Class 3A ti­tle Oct. 25 at Her­itage Hills in York.

Jarolen gave his play­ers two key pieces of ad­vice Thurs­day: stay dry and keep the ball in play.

“I told them, ‘Bunts are bet­ter than home runs ,’ be­cause there’s a lot of out of bounds on the course,” Jarolen said. “There are so many penalty strokes out there be­cause there are so many out of bounds.”

An­gle and Evie Wil­liams are sched­uled to play Mon­day in the PIAA Easter n Re­gional In­di­vid­ual Cham­pi­onships at Golden Oaks Golf Club.
