Tigers Caleb Kirk and Tate Jamison both shot 87 at Williamsport Country Club in the final round to finish in a tie for 14th place. Both golfers improved from their first round scores of 92 on Thursday and were pleased with their seasons,” East Juniata coach Mike Zendt said.
The top six golfers move on.
Beward had the best round of the Class 2A event on the second day, shooting 76 to claim gold. On the back nine, he had a birdie and an eagle on the way to a two-day total of 158.

BETHLEHEM — All of Juniata’s cross country runners set personal marks and Logan Strawser set a school record at Friday’s Paul Short Cross Country Invitational at Lehigh University.
Strawser’s 15:00.4 cracked the mark set by Garrett Baublitz, who now runs for the Naval Academy, on the same court.
Sophomores Wyatt Stroup and Joey Bomberger both finished in the top 100. The boys team placed 18th out of 44 teams in the race, which featured nearly 500 entrants.
“We came here to run fast times and that’s exactly what we accomplished,” Juniata coach Jeff Miller said. “I purposely entered the boys in the faster Class 3A race just for this reason. We could have placed third as a team in the other AA race, but that wasn’t our main goal today.
“Logan battled up front again with some of the best runners in the state. We just need to work on his last mile.”
In the girls white race, sophomore Jessie Bomberger led the Indians. The Indians were one runner shy of being able to compete as a team.
“It was awesome to see all four of our girls run personal best today. It shows that all the hard work is paying off,” Miller said.
