Wrestling

The Fox Chapel High School wrestling team headed to West Mifflin on Friday and Saturday to take part in the Steve DeAugustino Holiday Classic.

The Foxes had four wrestlers win their quarterfinal matches and move onto the medal round on Saturday.

At 106, Jared Rice turned back Tony DiNinno of Plum by a 5-0 score.

Tyler Heasley beat Zach Martin of Plum, 5-3, at 152. At 182, Rich Giovanetti pinned Plum's Nate Turchick at the 1:14 mark and, at 285, Tyler Lever pinned Belle Vernon's Austin Sluk in 37 seconds.

Saturday's action saw Rice beat Noah Stoker of South Allegheny, 9-1, to claim third place.

In the championship match at 152, Heasley fell to Grant Fetchet of South Fayette to finish second. Giovanetti took third at 182 with a pin of South Fayette's Brad Haney in 44 seconds. Lever took third at 285 by pinning Zeynul Zaynullayev of Mt. Lebanon in 59 seconds.

Overall, the Foxes finished in ninth place.

SSA girls hoops

The SSA girls basketball team opened play in the West Shamokin Christmas Tournament with a 45-42 win over Knoch on Thursday.

The Indians trailed 25-20 at the half but outscored the Knights by 15-8 in the third quarter and held on for the win.

Gabby Harchelroad scored 16 and Audrey Koi added 13.

Things bottomed out for Coach Audrey Scott's team on Friday as they fell to West Shamokin in the championship game by a 48-27 score.

“I don't think it was a matter of West Shamokin being that good,” Scott said. “We were just that bad.

“That came as a total surprise. We probably shot about 10-percent for the game. At halftime, one of the officials told me that we'd be running away with it if we were hitting any shots.

“We even struggled against Knoch but Gabby kept us in the game.

“We were like night and day. I gave the team four days off and I don't know if that was a cause for the bad play or not.”

FC Girls Hoops

The Fox Chapel girls traveled to Erie last Thursday and Friday to play in the McDowell Tournament.

On Thursday, they won 42-33 with Erin Mathias scoring 22 and Taylor Cohen adding 11.

They got their first taste of defeat on Friday as they fell to an unbeaten Franklin team (9-0) by 65-34. Mathias scored 17 for the 8-1 Foxes.
