When Avonworth quarterback Zach Chandler took to the field with his teammates last Friday in the regular season finale for both his team, as well as for rival Northgate, he knew he had a chance to break the WPIAL single-season mark for yards passing. All he needed were 308 yards, and because he had been averaging 311 per game, it was almost a given.

And so it came as no surprise when he finished with 365, throwing for four touchdowns and running for 140 yards, which produced three more touchdowns, leading his team to a 50-49 win.

But setting records wasn't on his mind.

With Mark Helbling in the third ward and Frank Camello in the second ward deciding not to run for re-election, council was guaranteed some fresh blood. Republican Tom Hrynda was unopposed for the second ward seat. In the third ward, Republicans Tom Fodi and Grant Saylor faced off against Democratic incumbent Jim Scisciani, and secured the two open seats.

The topics discussed by members of the Women's Literary Club of Bellevue are, by their nature, works of historical interest rather than works of fiction. In fact, the 17 ladies who meet once a month from October to June truly qualify as being academics rather than readers of the classics or of “best seller” contemporary literature.

The formula that the ladies follow, is, indeed, tried and true, having been practiced for over a century, with the club's 110th anniversary being marked on Nov. 1.

With injuries beginning to take their toll, the Avonworth Antelopes football team had their work cut out for themselves heading into their showdown against conference leader North Catholic last Friday. The Antelopes battled to make a game of it against the Trojans at home, but wound up on the short end of it in a 26-14 loss.

"They [North Catholic] made plays. We didn't and they came out on top," said coach Duke Johncour. "We stalled some drives with a couple of penalties and that set us back," he said.
