Ron Gower/times news Marian's Abby O'Donnell (27) passes the ball as teammate Emily Pilla moves in from behind.


Marian entered last night's game against Nativity undefeated.

They also came in as the Schuylkill League Division 4 champions.

However, lost in all that was the fact that this year's Fillies are still a very young and inexperienced team.

Last night, their youth finally showed, as Nativity swept Marian in three straight games by final scores of 28-26, 25-23,25-10.

The loss ended a 26-game regular season winning streak for Marian (12-1), whose roster (12 girls) is comprised of five freshmen and four sophomores.

It's fair to say that it has been an up and down year for the Tamaqua Blue Raiders (3-4, 3-2 Anthracite) this season. Although the Raiders haven't been consistent as a whole this season there is no doubt that Tamaqua running back Jarred Muffley has been. The Raiders' back ran right through the eye of the hurricane last week pounding Schuylkill Haven for 272 yards on the ground and three scores to earn the week seven TIMES NEWS Player of the Week.

NANCY SCHOLZ/Special to THE TIMES NEWS Pleasant Valley's Dana McAllister finished second and the Bears girls were first in the MVC Cross Country championships on Tuesday in Bethehem.

The Lady Bears proved that Tuesday at the Bethlehem Municipal Golf Course, where the Mountain Valley Conference held its annual cross country meet.
