Lady Wolves volleyball team looks for playoff return

August 31, 2012

Last year’s Kane Lady Wolves volleyball team was in an unusual place during last year’s District 9 playoffs—home. For the first time in 17 seasons, head coach Judy Kessler’s squad missed out on a chance to earn a spot to the state playoffs.
With a record of 7-9, they were close, and with a number of key starters returning with an additional year of experience, Kessler is looking forward to making the playoffs once again.

August 31, 2012

The Kane Wolves marching band is ready to wow the crowds at Paul R Miller Stadium during football games, as well as band competitions throughout the area this fall. The band, under the direction of Matthew McClard and assistants Joe Thornburg and Henry Sobieski, will be competing in the Tournament of Bands Competition Circuit, as well as hosting the annual Loren B. Wright Music Festival on Saturday, Sept. 8.
The band, which finished second at the Tournament of Bands Chapter 11 Championships last year, won shows in St Marys, Youngsville and Conemaugh Township last season.

Lady Wolves’ soccer team has quality, Not quantity

August 31, 2012

Third-year Kane girls’ soccer coach Allie Saquin has eight returning letterwinners from last year’s 7-9 team. That is the good news. The bad news is that there are only 13 girls on the roster.
With 11 girls on the field at a time, depth could be a serious problem for the Lady Wolves.
Saquin will be patrolling the sidelines along with assistant coaches Jeff Gibbs, in his second season, and new volunteer assistant Robynn Boyer. The returning letterwinners are Dawn Saquin, Taylor Bucheit, Haylee Mague, Brittany Kowatch, Shyanne Todd, Kelsey Johnson, Sara Mohney, and Andrea Walker.

Coach Silfies ready to continue Wolves’ football tradition

August 31, 2012

Change is in the air for the Kane Wolves’ football program. While there may be new coaches, Wolves’ head coach Todd Silfies does not expect any big changes in style of football. The biggest change is the addition of freshmen to the high school football roster. This means that there will be 55 players on the sideline on game nights, a big jump from previous seasons.
Fourteen ninth-graders are on the team this year. According to Silfies, a number of other AML teams also made the same move.

The Kane Cross Country runners look to follow up a successful 2011 season as they move up a classification in District 9.
Two members of last year’s boys team and two members of last year’s girls team ran in the PIAA tournament, and head coach Adam Smelko and his assistants Rich Hunt and Matt Gasbarre are hoping to have even more Wolves make the trip this season.
Senior captain Avery Colson will lead the way for the Wolves. Colson was one of the two runners from the boys’ team to run at states, along with Jon Gelsick. Chris Hunt is the other captain of the boys’ team.

Cheerleading is broken up into several different seasons. The Kane cheerleaders have begun their fall cheerleading season, which head coach Chris Niklaus considers a “preseason for the competition team.”

Chamberlain hopes young soccer team won’t wilt under pressure

August 31, 2012

Youth will be the key word for the 2012 Kane boys’ soccer team.
Head coach Ernie Chamberlain, now in his fifth year at the helm, must replace 10 starters from a team that was one win short of making the playoffs.
Chamberlain has 18 players on his roster, with three being returning letterwinners. Zach Hadfield is the only senior on the team, and will be one of the two captains. Junior Riley Austin will be the other captain of the squad. Chamberlain said that the two have a lot of experience and leadership, and have done a great job motivating their teammates.

Kane boys’ golf team off to solid start

August 31, 2012

The 2012 Kane Boys’ Golf team surpassed last year’s win total on their opening day.
Head coach Nathan Smith’s squad defeated Smethport and Austin in their first match, and split their second match, defeating Port Allegany and losing to Ridgway. Smith, now in his 10th year as coach, has five golfers that earned letters last year returning this season. They are Ryan Greto, Dan Park, Austin Woolcock, Trace Gordon, and Austin Hoag.
Smith calls these five the “core of the team.” All of them spent many hours on the course over the summer and have improved over last year.
