Swim Team Receives Donation July 13, 2018

The Mount Joy Lions Club has closed its swimming pool on Fairview Street after 54 years of continuous operation. For most of those years, the pool sponsored a summer swim team. With the closing of the pool, the swim team faced an uncertain future.

Through the efforts of the Mount Joy Lions swim team parents group and support from various community organizations, the swim team will continue practicing at Elizabethtown College and will swim all its meets at the scheduled opponent's pool. A recent donation of $2,500 from the Mount Joy Lions Club to the swim team was intended to help defray the cost of operating as a team without a permanent home pool.

Softball Team Advances To States July 12, 2018

Members of the Avon Grove Area Little League (AGALL) 10U girls' All-Star Softball Team were recently crowned the District 28 and Section 7 champions, earning them the right to play in the Pennsylvania State Little League Tournament. Hosted by the Christy Mathewson Little League in Fleetville, the tournament began on July 17 and will run through Monday, July 23.

According to team manager Dusty McKeown, this is the third year in a row that the team has advanced to States. "This is an incredible accomplishment for our girls as well as our community," he remarked.

Dusty explained that District 28 is comprised of Little League teams from Oxford, Kennett Square, Caln, Coatesville, Twin Valley, Downingtown, Lionville, Glenmoore-Eagle and West Bradford, along with West Side and East Side in West Chester.

"You have your regular Little League season that runs from late March to early June," he said. "At the end of the year, you pull an All-Star team."

Members of the AGALL All-Star 10U team include Gabriella Beltran, Paige Chudnofsky, Haileigh Corbett, Addison Curtis, Kailey Deckman, Mackenzie Dunlap, Reese Dunlap, Cailin Maley, Megan McKeown, Elle Morris, Adelyn Overton, Sophia Santinelli, Peyton Smerkanich and Michaela Sycalik. The team's assistant coaches are Lino Santinelli, Chris Morris and Melissa Chudnofsky.

In the District 28 championship game, Dusty reported that Megan threw a no-hitter to lead the team past Coatesville 13-0. "Megan went six innings, allowing zero runs and zero hits and (throwing) 16 strikeouts," he stated. "Avon Grove 10U racked up 13 hits on the day. Gabby, Megan, Michaela, and Elle each had multiple hits for the team."

Dusty provided additional statistics about the district tournament. "We went 3 and 0 in the tournament, scoring 38 runs while allowing two runs (both unearned)," he reported. "Our pitchers racked up 34 strikeouts in 16 innings and had a team ERA of 0.00. Our team batting average was .384, and our team on-base percentage was .518."

To prepare for the district championship game, Dusty said the girls practiced six days a week, for two and a half to three hours per day, for five weeks leading up to the tournament.

"I am extremely proud of all the hard work and dedication this group of girls has put in to be the team they have become. They practiced almost every day since the beginning of June with the goal being to get back to the state tournament," he stated. "They have achieved their goal and have represented Avon Grove, District 28 and Section 7 with class and exhibiting good sportsmanship throughout. Win or lose, they will be a joy to watch during the state tournament."

If the team is successful at States, it will advance to the Eastern Region Tournament to be held the last week in July.

AGALL, located in West Grove, is a chartered member of Little League International. The nonprofit organization provides baseball and softball opportunities for players ranging in age from 4 to 16 who attend school in the Avon Grove School District.

Twin Valley Indoor Guard Completes Successful First Year June 26, 2018

In their first year of competition, members of the Twin Valley High School (TVHS) indoor guard had a successful season, winning first place in several competitions over the past six months. The highlight of the season was on May 26, when the team won the 2018 Twirling Unlimited (TU) Regional Championship title in the Senior Color Guard division. The event was held at the York County School of Technology in York.

The new team is composed of Amber Boyer, Emma Brennan, Hailee Gould and Kendra Newman. It is coached by TVHS graduate Denetra Bauer, who is also the TVHS color guard director and the Twin Valley Middle School color guard coach.

Bauer explained that Amber, who had competed on a team at a different school, petitioned her last November to have an indoor guard at TVHS. "She learned that I was the coach of the Twin Valley Middle School color guard and asked if I would like to have the honor of coaching for the (high school) indoor guard," said Bauer. "I gladly accepted, and we started within weeks."

The group began rehearsing in December of 2017, and the competition season ran from January through May. The girls competed at venues in Lancaster, Dallastown and other towns, capturing first-place honors at each event.

Bauer explained that indoor color guard, also called winter guard, is similar to what audiences see during halftime shows at local high school football games. "It is very close, but the choreography is done on the gym floor," she said. "We use rifles and flags, and there is one part where we use performance sabers. It is fun to watch."

At competitions, the Twin Valley group competed in the Senior Small category. "They break the competition into categories," Bauer explained. "You would not have a team with four or five members against a team with 25 members because it's so aesthetically different."

She said that the judges sit on one side of the gym during competition and that teams design their choreography to play to the judges, similar to the practice of a marching band playing to the home grandstand at a football game.

"Like most judging, there is a standard you have to meet in five categories, (including) difficulty, uniqueness, unison, general effect and variety, (which is) basically body movement and choreography. You can do a short or long program," she said, explaining that the short program is four minutes and the long program is six minutes. "Given that it was the first time that three of the four (girls) had done this, we did a short program."

Bauer said that she is proud of the girls who worked hard and had to finance the cost of participating on the team. "It is a big-time commitment. A lot of them are committed to being in other activities, like the (school) play and other clubs," Bauer noted. "They had to buy uniforms and their warm-up suits, their competition flags and their silks. They had to pay for their own entrance fees and travel."

Bauer noted that the group is planning to march in local parades in preparation for the upcoming season, noting that the girls recently performed at the Morgantown Carnival. "We have already started our choreography for next year and hope (the program) grows," she said. "We have some middle school kids coming up (to high school) who have expressed an interest."

Twin Valley students interested in joining the group are asked to email twirlmtc@aol.com. More information about the team is available by searching for "Twin Valley Color Guard" on Facebook.

Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) athletes received a Pennsylvania state flag from state Sen. Andrew Dinniman of the 19th District at his district office in West Chester on June 7. Members of Team Pennsylvania will carry the flag during the opening ceremonies of the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games on Sunday, July 1, at the University of Washington Husky Stadium in Seattle, Wash.

The USA Games showcase the abilities of athletes with intellectual disabilities and the impact of Special Olympics through world-class competition, inspirational experiences, and a model of inclusion for all. This year's Games will take place in Seattle from July 1 to Friday, July 6, and will feature more than 4,000 athletes and coaches representing 50 state programs and the District of Columbia. Supporting by tens of thousands of volunteers and spectators, the athletes will compete in 14 Olympic-type team and individual sports.

The opening ceremony will include traditions such as the Parade of Athletes, during which the Pennsylvania flag will be displayed, and the lighting of the Special Olympics Flame of Hope. Actor-singer Taye Diggs will serve as the master of ceremonies, and the event will feature performances by Charlie Puth, Marshmello, Allen Stone, Ann Wilson of Heart, Seattle hip-hop crew Massive Monkees and more. A 2,018-member choir will also serve as a living backdrop to the show.

A total of 50 athletes and 16 coaches, staff and unified partners make up Team Pennsylvania. SOPA athletes competed in a series of state, local and sectional competitions in order to be eligible to compete at the national level.

Prior to the Games, a sendoff and celebratory breakfast will be held for Team Pennsylvania on Saturday, June 30, from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at Xfinity Live in Philadelphia. Employees of an area business will be on-site to cheer the athletes on and help to lead the athletes to their buses. The Philadelphia Police Department will provide a highway escort to the airport.

The Oxford Diamond Divas, a girls' softball organization, ended its 2018 spring recreational softball season on top for both its 10U and 12U teams.

The 10U Divas made it to the championship game and left as co-champions with Glenmoore Girls' Softball 10U after a dramatic ending to the game.

The 12U Divas also made the championship game against Glenmoore Girls' Softball 12U and won after exhibiting noteworthy offensive and defensive efforts. The championship game was the team's final win in an undefeated season.

The Oxford Diamond Divas played home games this spring at Shelton Field at Oxford Area Regional Park in Oxford. The organization hopes to offer teams this fall for 8U, 10U, 12U, and 14U.
