On point, and on pace, for a career milestone.

The grad student forward could reach 200 points when the American Collegiate Hockey Association resumes in January.

Through 21 games, he had 14 goals and 25 assists for 39 points this season, raising his career point total to 196.

Mauro played most of his college career at Slippery Rock, where he had 157 points.

Hoops season tips

The Franklin Regional girls basketball team started fast, winning both games at the Fayette County Coaches Tournament at Penn State Fayette.

The Panthers topped host Laurel Highlands, 60-27, as Avery Musto made five 3-pointers and scored 16 points and Brooke Schirmer added 13 points.

They followed with a 43-39 win over Hempfield as Schirmer scored 10.

Tragesser picks school

Franklin Regional senior Caroline Tragesser will play golf at the Division II level. Tragesser recently signed a letter of intent to attend Ohio Dominican of the Great Midwest Conference.

Bouncing back

The Franklin Regional hockey team doesn’t lose very often, but when the Panthers do fall, they have a knack for bouncing back.

After Penn-Trafford dumped them, 7-1, for their first loss of the season, the Panthers took down West Allegheny, 5-1.

Matty Knizner had two goals and an assist, while Brett Bowser, Chase Williams and Luke Lavrich also found the net, and Ben Yurko had three assists for Franklin Regional (8-1).
