The 2020 Bellwood golf team had their best season in a decade; they captured their first ICC title since 2011 and had many conference all-stars and postseason qualifiers. B-A will be looking to build off of such a successful 2020 season; however, it will be a tough task after losing 8 of the 11 golfers from last season.

Upcoming senior and 2020 ICC all-star Ethan Brown stated:

“I felt really good about last season, I accomplished my personal goals, the team did really well, and I qualified for sectionals.” Also, when asked on how the team is going to build off of last season, Brown was very optimistic. “We only have 3 out of 11 golfers return, but the team is looking just as good as last year, if not better. I have high hopes individually and as a team.”


Similar to the golf program, the B-A cross country team is also coming off of a very successful season after winning an ICC title last year. The team also has a lot of newcomers due to a co-op with Bishop Guilfoyle and their participants. After losing key senior runner from last year, Kenny Robison, upcoming seniors Caedon Poe and Colin McFarland will look to fill big shoes this upcoming season. Poe reflected on the upcoming season and the loss of Robison. “Kenny was a big leader for us and backed that role with his performance, so this year’s seniors will have to step up and become bigger leaders on our team.”


After a disappointing 2020 season that ended in a 5-13 record, the B-A Volleyball team will look to a nucleus of returning starters to find success in 2021. After losing important senior contributor Raven Cristicello, the devils will look to upcoming juniors Lydia Worthing and Hailee McConnell to become leaders for the team. The ladies open their season September 7th at Curwensville.


The Tyrone/Bellwood-Antis co-op men’s soccer team will be looking to rebuild in 2021 after losing a lot of production to graduating seniors. Bellwood-Antis grads Alex Taylor (Mountain League MVP), Aiden Taylor, Andrew Tornatore, and Landon Bungo will not be returning this year, which will leave some big shoes to fill for upcoming players. Head coach and former Bellwood grad Alex Bartlett will look to get the team back to the District 6 title game in 2021, where they unfortunately lost the last 2 seasons.


The Tyrone/Bellwood-Antis co-op women’s soccer team will look to upcoming Bellwood senior and team captain Sophia Nelson to lead the team to a promising 2021 season. Returning goalie Jaylee Shuke is looking to end on a good note for her final season. The lady Golden Eagles have a good mix of talent from both schools and are hoping to improve from last year.
