A look at this week’s highlights on Wellsboro Home Page


by Home Page Staff - May 2-3, 2015

It’s time once again to take a look at what happened the past week. The Weekly Highlights are a great way to catch up, but don’t forget that you can always watch the full stories from either our front page or the archives section.
The Wellsboro Little League kicked off their 64th season on Saturday, April 25 with their annual Opening Day Parade. The parade started at 10 a.m. as teams left Packer Park led by the Wellsboro Marching Band and made their way down Queen St. before turning onto Main St. The teams made their way up Main St. in front of big crowd, before turning around and heading back to Packer Park.

After the parade, each team headed over to the Charleston St. complex for team pictures and an afternoon of baseball and softball.
From Wellsboro to Boston and back here with us today is Ted Sneshkoff, local runner, (and as of Monday April 20th) – Boston Marathon Finisher! Many cold days (and nights) he trained through this bitter snowy winter. You might think someone who ran over 26 miles to complete a marathon would have always been into running, but this isn’t the case with Ted. He made the choice to begin this healthier and more active lifestyle back in 2010 and has finished several marathons already, leads group runs, and who knows what’s next?
Ted will be leading a Couch-to-5K program this summer. Let him (or any other member of the Tyoga Running Club) know if you are interested in making your own life change in the upcoming months. The series will culminate in at the 5K run/walk event at Hills Creek State Park in September, so you have plenty of time even if you wouldn’t dream of running a few miles now.
On Tuesday, April 28 as the Hornets hosted Northeast Bradford and Troy on Senior Night. The evening began as Wellsboro Athletic Director Matt Rendos announced all the senior athletes before their final home meet.

The Wellsboro Lady Hornets took home first place with 112 points, followed by Troy with 42 and Northeast Bradford with 30.
On the boys side, Northeast Bradford won the meet with 80 points, followed by Wellsboro in second with 75 and Troy in third with 33.
The wins improve the girls’ record to 7-1, while the boys improve to 5-3. Both teams will be back in action on Friday, May 1 as they participate in the Coudersport Invite.
First Friday is back and debuts on May 1st with a Cinco de Mayo theme!
This event takes place on the first Friday of each month.
Would you like to learn the basic skills of kayaking before traveling on the waters of Tioga County? That has been the mission of the Kayak Club of Mansfield University for the past sixteen years. Mike Sidell, one of the instructors of the Kayak Club said that “it is a university club and we try to teach university people and we do anyone from the university family that wants to learn. And we have had people from Provost, all the way down to freshmen. It is also open to the community.”
