Weekly Highlights – 10/24/16 – 10/28/16

A look at this week’s highlights (and bloopers!) on Wellsboro Home Page


by Home Page Staff - October 29-30, 2016

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 Varsity Football scored 33 second half points on their way to a 48-0 shutout over Wyalusing on Saturday, October 22.
The shutout was the Hornets’ sixth of the season, and Wellsboro had outscored their opponents 387-33 through 9 games this season. Wellsboro allowed just 141 total yards of offense on the afternoon (74 passing, 67 rushing).
“The defense continues to do what they’ve done all year,” said head coach Matt Hildebrand after his 37th career win. “The put points on the board today as well. We had less than ideal conditions early on in the game but they held them and didn’t let them (Wyalusing) put the ball in the end zone. They were out on the field a lot, we didn’t have the ball on offense very much, but they did their job once again.”
You have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others here in Tioga County. On Saturday, October 29th, there is a fun filled community event planned in Mansfield. This event, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, is an opportunity to raise money and help cancer patients in Tioga County.
To get involved join us at Smythe Park in Mansfield on October 29th, as we run and walk past cancer. Choose the activity level that is right for you and your family. There is a 1 mile walk/run event and a 5K event. Registration will be open right up to race time, or you can pick up a registration form today. Registration forms for the 5K and the 1 mile fun walk/run can be picked up at Wild Asaph Outfitters at 71 Main Street, in Wellsboro or Oswald Cycle Works at 7 North Main Street, in Mansfield.
Checking-in for the events begins at 8:30AM, on October 29th, at Smythe Park. The 1 mile fun walk/run will begin at 9:30AM and the 5K begins at 10AM. Participants are allowed and encouraged to take part in both events.
Gaming, whether playing games on a phone, computer, or TV, has a certain tenor to it for those young and old. There are those who think gaming is a “waste of time”, “fascinating”, “weird”, “challenging”, “artistic”, “relaxing”, “a good distraction”, “addicting”, “insightful”, or “problematic”. These are a few of the descriptors people use when they hear the word “gaming”. We all make different associations to this word, depending on how we interpret and experience it. Some love it, some hate it, and some don’t really have any opinion.
Gaming has both positive and negative qualities according to college students at MU. According to our small poll of public opinion, some students don’t find it worth their time to spend doing. They would rather invest in other activities they are more interested in. Others are too busy. For those that do enjoy it, they find it relaxing, challenging, strategic, collaborative, helpful for coping, and artistically inspirational. Depending on interest and lifestyle factors, students choose to spend time in different ways. Gaming is one way to do so.
The Wellsboro Varsity Volleyball team suffered a 3-0 loss to Coudersport on Senior Night on Wednesday, October 26.
Coudersport picked up the non-league sweep by winning 25-20, 25-22, and 25-16. The loss drops the Lady Hornets’ record to 12-9 on the year.
Senior Kirsten Florio had 13 kills, senior Morgan Florio had 7 kills, and junior Jillian Graver had 6 kills. Junior Brianne Keane led the team with 23 assists, Morgan Florio also pitched in 12 digs and 5 points, junior Sydney Tremper had 10 digs, and junior Cheyenne Sherman scored 4 points and had 3 blocks.
In the JV match, the young Lady Hornets won 2-0 (25-21, 25-19) to finish the season undefeated under coach Michelle McNett.
The evening of Friday, October 28, 2016 will set the stage for a dramatic showdown: the highly anticipated rivalry football game between Wellsboro High School and North Penn-Mansfield. This year, the Hornets will meet the Panthers at Mansfield University’s Karl Van Norman Field to determine who will walk away with Morton F. Jones Memorial Trophy and the Northern Tier League Large School Division championship. This trophy has been awarded to the winner and traded back and forth since 1962.
In today’s feature, former coach and Home Page correspondent Steve Adams meets with North Penn-Mansfield head coach Tom Dickinson and Wellsboro head coach Matt Hildebrand to talk about their teams, the importance of tonight’s game, and what this long-standing rivalry means to the two schools and to them.
