Damsels down Lady Tide
Saturday, April 25, 2015
By Rich Murawski Assistant Sports Editor
CURWENSVILLE - The 2015 season has been tough on pretty much all softball and baseball teams in the area due to the weather and the postponing of games, but it's been especially unkind to Moshannon Valley, which only had four contests under its belt heading into Friday's tilt at Curwensville.
So after losing their first four games by a combined score of 34-1 to District 6 heavyweights Bellwood-Antis, Mount Union and Claysburg-Kimmel (twice), it was very satisfying for the young Damsels to earn an 11-4 win against the Lady Tide at Riverside Stadium. more...

Like students across the state, Curwensville Area Elementary students are in the midst of testing for the state System of School Assessment. To help their students wind down from mornings of exams, Barry Jordan, Melanie Miller and Linda Shaffer, sixth grade instructors at Curwensville Area Elementary School, had their students, as a culminating activity on their social studies unit on Canada, create a parade of floats highlighting the northern country's 10 provinces and three territories. Pairs of students worked cooperatively on building a float and writing accompanying narration featuring information about cities, capitals, population, languages, tourist destinations, industry and culture from the province or territory they chose. The parade was held on Wednesday afternoon. (Photo by Dianne Byers)
