2012-2013 Danville Sports Wrap-up GIRLS SOCCER A tremendous senior class saw their careers come to end with a disappointing loss in the District 4 Class AA title game but not before Danville ended the two-run run of a state champion. In the championship game at Loyalsock, the Ironmen outshot Selinsgrove 23-8, but the Seals prevailed in a shootout to win the district crown.

Lewisburg edged the Ironmen 1-0 in the title game. Danville finished the year 17-2-1 after going 12-1-1 in the division to win the crown outright after sharing the title. Earning all-HAC honors for the Ironmen were Andrew Smith, Robert Gentilucci, Tyler Jani, Chris Dempsey, Gage Reber along with coach Dressler.

It was the second unbeaten league season in a row for Danville, extending its HAC-I record to 31 straight league wins entering the 2013-14 season.

GOLF The Ironmen were once again the top team in the Heartland Athletic Conference, going 29-1 under coach Ron Kanaskie. The Ironmen won the HAC-II crown and also won the District 4 Class AA team title. Junior Austin Renz was the District 4 Class AA individual champion. He and Robbie Seebold both advanced to the East Regional where Renz finished third and Seebold tied for 16th to advance to states. At states, Seebold was 11th and Renz finished in a tie for 17th place.

GIRLS BASKETBALL The pesky Ironmen won the league championship with a route of rival Shamokin only to suffer another heartbreaking loss in the District 4 championship game. Danville beat Shamokin by nearly 20 points to clinch the HAC-I crown. The Ironmen also won the inaugural Heartland Athletic Conference Tournament. In the district title game against Athens, the Ironmen rallied from a slow start, but came up just short. After trailing 13-0, Danville outscored the Wildcats 20-5 in the fourth quarter, but fell by a bucket. Danville made a return trip to the state playoffs, where it fell to Honesdale to finish the terrific season 22-6. The Ironmen were led by HAC-I all-star Amber Renz, a freshman who averaged 16.6 points and 9.3 rebounds. Also earning postseason honors were Siobhan Bross and Ericka Heath.
