Football Team Routs Haven, Golf and Tennis Teams Roll, Soccer and Volleyball Teams Open Season

The Blue Mountain Football Team got off to a hot start with a 35-0 rout of rival Schuylkill Haven on Friday. Sophomore Jack Dean was stellar for the Eagles, tossing four first half touchdowns. He connected with Gavin Bartholomew twice for 33 yards and 70 yards. He hit Bryce Hensley twice for 17 yards and 35 yards. Dean ran for a one-yard touchdown in the third quarter to decide the final margin. Freshman kicker Carson Steinruck was 5/5 on extra points for the Eagles as well. Defensively the Eagles’ size advantage was hard for the Hurricanes to overcome, as the defensive line and linebackers were constantly in the backfield. Also, Bryce Hensley opened the game with an interception to help the defense get off the field quickly. The Eagles are preparing to host the Olympians from Jim Thorpe (1-0) this Friday.

The Golf team continued their tear through the Schuylkill League with a pair of victories over Tamaqua and Jim Thorpe on Wednesday and Thursday. The Eagles defeated Tamaqua 321-433 and were led by Derrick Yuengling’s 74. They followed up Thursday with a 315-473 victory over the Olympians and were led by Yuengling’s Blue Mountain record tying score of a 4 under 68.
