MINERSVILLE – Last night, Panther Valley simply ran out of time.

After allowing Minersville to take a 20-15 lead with 1:28 remaining in the game, the Panthers season boiled down to one final drive.

bob ford/times news Tyler Stelmack of Northwestern was the top area finisher at the PIAA State Cross Country Meet on Saturday. Stelmack was 35th in the Boys Class AA race.

HERSHEY - In cross country, familiarity with a course can be an advantage.

The question for Northwestern's runners at Saturday morning's PIAA Championships was, how much would it be worth?

The Tigers ran on the challenging 3.1 mile Parkview layout at the PIAA Foundation Invitational back on Sept. 25, and three of their harriers returned for another crack at it at the State Meet.

By having previously run the course, the Tiger trio benefitted from the experience, timewise.
