SUNBURY — Colby Lahr was stunned almost to the point of being numb.

Shikellamy was just two outs from its first district playoff win in five years when cross-river rival Selinsgrove made good on its last scoring threat.


Nine-hole hitter Ben Kuhns laced a two-run single past a drawn-in infield that vaulted the Seals into the lead very suddenly in the seventh inning.

“I was definitely stunned,” said Lahr, one of the Braves’ seven seniors, six of whom were on the field. “It was not a good feeling at all. It hit hard and came quick. I wasn’t expecting that to happen — not at all.” Read More...

H.S. Roundup: Seals move closer to playoff berth


SELINSGROVE — Selinsgrove won a wild one over Juniata on Monday, as the Seals needed nine innings to take a 9-8 nonleague victory and move a win away from qualifying for the District 4 playoffs.


Selinsgrove (9-8) had 13 hits in the game, but the Seals scored their winning run on an error. Zac Broome and Aaron Zechman led off the ninth with a single and a walk, respectively, and they were followed by Ian Weaver who laid down a bunt that was misplayed to allow Broome to score.

“It was a crazy game,” said Selinsgrove coach Brent Beiler, whose team scored three runs in the sixth to take a 8-6 lead only to see Juniata tie the game with two runs in the seventh.

Zach Hendricks and Jake Nylund led the Seals with three hits apiece. Zechman and Broome each had two hits.

Selinsgrove hosts Central Mountain (today) and Lewisburg (Friday), and play at Berwick on Wednesday. The Seals need to win one of those games to reach the playoffs.

Weikel struck out eight and walked just one while facing just five batters over the minimum for Mifflinburg (6-1, 3-1 HAC-I).

Scott Dudinskie On H.S. baseball: Seals are rounding into form - The Daily Item: Sports


A year ago, Brody Beiler followed his heart away from the baseball diamond to the track and became one of the area’s top distance runners.

He left behind his father, Selinsgrove baseball coach Brent Beiler, and a group of former teammates who had excelled at every level.


Brent Beiler knew virtually everything about Brody’s classmates as ballplayers, having helped coach their Little League All-Star teams for six years.

What Beiler couldn’t know was how those boys would perform when their names were written into his varsity lineup. So he was understandably hesitant about how his 14th season would unfold with that junior class having to pull so much weight.

“I know they’ve contributed on the teams they’ve played on in the past,” he said, “but this is obviously the highest level they’ve played. I’m optimistic because there is a team chemistry.”

The Seals were ravaged by graduation as five of their top seven batters and two of their top three pitchers moved on.

A thin senior class returned three certain starters (Zach Hendricks, Manny Little and Isaiah Rapp), and Jake Nylund would build on a good freshman season. That left six starting spots up for grabs (including the DH), with Brody’s buddies expected to fill them.

“This class has been successful in junior varsity (22-6 the last two years), Little League and up through,” Coach Beiler said. “Almost all of them can impact the team in a positive way. I’m hoping they will contribute. They’re as ready as they’re going to get.”

Fast forward a month. 



H.S. Baseball: Selinsgrove downs Midd-West

BEAVER SPRINGS — Zach Hendricks figured he gave Selinsgrove coach Brent Beiler reason to reach for the hook several times Wednesday.

Truth is, Beiler only briefly considered pulling the senior right-hander — and ironically it was at the moment when Hendricks felt most confident.


With one out in the bottom of the last inning, Hendricks loaded the bases for the third time in the game and brought Midd-West’s potential go-ahead run to the plate. In other words, he had the Mustangs right where he wanted them.  Read More...

Jake Nylund scored both runs for Selinsgrove (4-1, 1-1 HAC-I) in the fourth and sixth innings.

Aaron Saar homered in the fifth inning for Jersey Shore (1-1-1).
