Kane earns first place in cheerleading competition

January 29, 2012

ST. MARYS – The Kane Varsity Competition Cheerleading team travelled to the Elk County Catholic Cheer Frenzy on Saturday and came home with first in the varsity division as well as the Judges Choice Award for the entire competition. 
The past week was a very difficult week for the team as they lost a vital member due to an injury. One of the team’s youngest members, an alternate, Dana Swartwood, had to step in and fill the void. The alternates are like the bench in other sports in that they learn the routine and may never get the opportunity to step in, but come to practice every day.

January 25, 2012

The Kane Wolves put together probably their best first half of the season against a very good Brookville team but lost, 57-36.

Stefani as he played maybe the best center in the league in Zane Hackett pretty much even. Stefani had a few blocked shots as well as altering several others. Tyler Ennis also had a good night on the boards as he made a good contribution with several key rebounds.
Jeff Kocjancic led Kane in scoring with 14 points. Stefani was next with seven.

Defense lifts Elk County to victory over Kane

January 23, 2012

In front of a big crowd in the Wolves Den the Elk County Catholic Lady Crusaders showed why they will be a team to contend with in the playoffs as they won 38-27 over Kane.
Their pressure defense led to several turnovers and extra possessions on the offense.
They also were able to take the crowd out of the game with the scrappy defense and outhustled Kane. They were quicker to the ball and they anticipated the passes very well.
For a team with not a lot of size they rebound the ball very well as a team. They more than held their own with the taller Lady Wolves on the boards.
