Lady Hornets top North Penn-Mansfield, 54-29
Senior Jessica Grab scored a career-high 20 points in the Wellsboro Varsity Girls Basketball team’s 54-29 win over rival North Penn-Mansfield on Friday, January 6.

The Lady Hornets jumped out to an early lead hitting two baskets, but a few early Wellsboro fouls kept the Lady Tigers in the game. Wellsboro led 10-6 after the first quarter. Wellsboro continued their hot streak in the second as they outscored Mansfield 13-9 to lead 23-15 at halftime, but broke the game open with an 18-point third quarter.

“We told them at halftime don’t relax and take care of what we can take care of, play hard defense, and that the shots would eventually fall,” said head coach John Davis. “The girls kept fighting and never gave up and Mansfield played hard. They were well prepared tonight and give them credit too.”

Step Outdoors – Winter Series Update!
Winter is here! Well, kind of… Some areas have snow while others do not and the temperatures seem to warm each week between extreme cold snaps.

We’re making the most of winter and not sitting inside, but stepping outdoors!

The full series of events running throughout January and February is listed at StepOutdoors.org and includes a printable flyer to post on your fridge or at work as a reminder to get out and be more active this winter!

You never know what nature will throw at us next, but most events are designed to be flexible based on snow or ice conditions. The real question now based on the forecast is, what will the January 21st Winterfest at Hills Creek be like?

Ag Happenings – The PA Farm Show
The FFA has a major part of the Pennsylvania Farm Show for many years and this year is no exception. Our local FFA chapter – the Grand Canyon chapter from Wellsboro High School had many participants in the Farm Show this year.

During the convention the Pennsylvania FFA Alumni Association handed out first year FFA members official FFA jackets. The organization hosts a competitive essay contest each year giving out jackets as a price. This year over 800 students submitted applications and 450 students were awarded jackets. Five Grand Canyon FFA first year members received their jacket including Nina Coolidge, Derrick Bolt, Tyren Wetzel, Jasmine Blackwell, and Hope Rexford.

The Alumni Association also hosted an essay contest to provide members scholarships to attend the Washington Leadership Conference in Washington D.C. in the summer of 2017. Grand Canyon FFA member Harlee Brooks was awarded a half scholarship to help her attend the conference this summer.

The final event of the day was the awarding of the Keystone FFA Degrees. This is the highest degree that the state FFA association can give and less than 5% of FFA members receive this honor. Members have to achieve requirements including spending at least 300 hours on their Supervised Agricultural Experience project, participating as a leader in their chapter and at the state level, and completing community service hours. Six Grand Canyon FFA members were awarded their degrees on Monday including Brody Coolidge, Bridget Kennedy, Kaycee Kaltenbach, Jessica Bolt, Chenoa Holsomback, and Hunter Huck.

Climb to Fitness at MU
Have you ever felt stuck in a fitness rut? Done with dumbbells. Tired of the treadmill. Sick of sit-ups. Let’s explore a fresh fitness option to break up the monotony!
Climbing is a great fitness pursuit. Whatever your experience level, climbing helps to increase your flexibility and physical strength. Overcoming the challenge of climbing also benefits your mental strength. There are, clearly, many advantages to this adventurous exercise.
A great location for that climb to take place is the Kelchner Fitness Center at Mansfield University. Their indoor climbing wall allows for year round climbing. They also offer equipment rental, which makes it a great option for beginners who want to test climbing out. The Kelchner climbing wall is certainly a fitness asset to Tioga County.
