3 things to know for May 11: AP Chemistry, Rams Beat Trojans, Golf Interest


1. AP Chemistry

2. Trojans Fall to Rams

On Monday it was the Derry Area Trojan baseball team who took advantage of Ligonier Valley miscues in a 5-2 win.  Tuesday at the home of the Rams, LV returned the favor by smacking nine hits and capitalizing on three costly DA errors in a 5-2 victory. DA now (10-5) overall finishes with a (6-4) section mark and a second-place section finish by virtue of a three-way tiebreaker with both Mount Pleasant and Deer Lakes.   DA will hold senior day activities this afternoon as they host Southmoreland in a non-conference tilt at Grandview Field. The pregame ceremony will begin at 4:00 with opening pitch slated for 4:15.

I don’t feel like being watched.

Ariel Winter has said goodbye to Los Angeles for her sanity.

The actress appeared on Modern Family mom Julie Bowen’s podcast Quitters to discuss how she recently sold her house, packed a U-Haul and moved out of Hollywood with her boyfriend, Luke Benward, and dogs. The 24-year-old’s complicated relationship with fame is behind the move. She said having spent most of her life in the spotlight has caused her to grow tired of being tracked by paparazzi and having the photos used to fuel negative gossip stories about her.


Yesterday, a dozen of Track and Field athletes headed to Norwin to compete in their Last Chance Carnival. For a lot of them, it was literally their last chance to qualify for the WPIAL Championships next week. The following achieved personal bests and will now await their fate as the Top 16 will be released Thursday evening: Ahmad Ward in the 200m and javelin, Damuari Robinson in the 200m, Tim Miller in the 300 hurdles, Carson Chamberlain in the discus, Sara Bungard in the shotput, Ashley Baker in the triple jump, Regan Repak in the high jump, and Julia Omlor in the 200 meter dash.

The story of the day belonged to freshman Sophia Mazzoni as she threw the javelin 125 feet, 6 inches… which now places her as the #1 seed in WPIAL double A and currently ranks her as the #8 freshman javelin thrower in the country.
