Week of October 4

Fall Sports

Dear PV Athletic Community,


It is hard to believe but our first fall sport is starting to wind down as both of our golf teams are heading towards district play. It was an exciting week for both the girls and the boys as they competed at our PAC championships. Abigail McCorkell and Sofia Killar qualified for the district 1 championships for the girls. Ryan Horenci, Jack Colyer, Andrew Cowgill, and Ayush Patel all qualified for the boys. The boys also qualified for the final four of the PAC golf championships by winning an exciting tie-breaker versus PJP. Unfortunately, their PAC season came to an end with loss to Spring-Ford.


Included in this newsletter is information regarding our winter sports sign-ups. Please register by November 8 so we can best prepare for our winter sports seasons. Lastly, please come out this week to support our seniors in tennis and girls soccer as they both have their senior nights this week. Football will also have a special night Friday as we are recognizing any former football player, cheerleader, or band member who served in the military. We hope to see you soon at our events.





Sincerely,


Robert L. Felty Jr.

Athletic Director
