In a game that Kane football fans will remember for many years, the Kane Wolves rallied to defeat the previously unbeaten Elk County Catholic Crusaders in the Wolves 2012 homecoming game.
The Kane seventh and eighth grade girls basketball team hosted the Eisenhower Knights on Thursday, and sent both teams back to Warren County with a loss. The seventh-graders, under the direction of coach Mary Espin, improved to 3-7 with a 42-12 win in the opener. Coach Kathy Countsâ€™ eighth grade squad boosted their record to 6-3 with a 41-10 victory.
For the third straight week, the Kane Wolves football team faces an undefeated team.

Kane head coach Todd Silfiesâ€™ team hopes it can seal the deal this Friday when they take on Elk County Catholic (5-0) at Paul R Miller Stadium in the Wolvesâ€™ homecoming game.

BROOKVILLE â€“Â For the second year in a row, Elk County Catholic High School's Kristy Hanes finished in the runner-up spot among the Class AA golfers in the District 9 Girls' Golf Championship, three strokes behind the leader.

In this year's event, which was held at Pinecrest Country Club in Brookville, Hanes carded an 88 on the day, while Keystone's Amber Hess shot an 85 to take the title.
