The Saucon Valley Youth Wrestlers had a great showing in the 2017 VEWL tournament.

The 2017 VEWL (Valley Elementary Wrestling League) championship has come to a close and the Saucon Valley Panthers had an excellent showing. The Panthers finished third overall with 178 points trailing only Forks Township (179) and Northampton (207). Saucon Valley was able to close the gap on their opponents in the two day tournament, but could not quite catch the frontrunners.

There were, however, plenty of accolades and hardware to go around for the Panthers!
