Connellsville’s Madison Wiltrout

One thing is clear: Connellsville’s Madison Wiltrout knows ‘how to throw a javelin’ — even if she learned by watching a YouTube video.

Wiltrout’s record-setting throws gave us the ‘chills.’
Wiltrout set another record and won her second PIAA title. But in winning the state title, she suffered an injury that required surgery.

On Friday, Wiltrout makes triumphant return at Lady Spartan Invitational, by Paul Schofield.

Gorman: Is Pitt it for Allderdice’s Jackson twins?

Apparently so. Tim Jackson confirmed to Monday night that the Jacksons’ plan is to attend prep school — possibly Milford Academy — and then play at Pitt. There is a possibility that they could try to play both football and basketball.

Interestingly, Allderdice boys basketball coach Buddy Valinsky said he hadn’t heard from new Pitt coach Kevin Stallings yet. Both Stalling and Valinsky played in the 1978 Roundball Classic; Valinsky was in the preliminary game, Stallings played for the U.S. All-Stars.
