Est. Read Time: 7 mins

With Tuesday came the first Colonial League track meet.

Without much outdoor practice time to prepare, Coach Kolosky and the Saucon Valley Panthers made the short trip over to Southern Lehigh for the season opening tri-meet against the host Spartans and Northwestern Lehigh Tigers.

In addition to coping with Tuesday’s chilly weather, the Panthers also had to deal with perhaps two of the better track and field teams in the Colonial League.  Both the Southern Lehigh Boys and Girls Track teams are on a recent roll. The Southern Lehigh Girls program is looking to three-peat as Colonial League champs while the Boys team has an eye on repeating.

Northwestern Lehigh is also a formidable opponent with very strong cross-country roots. Led by Maddie Consuelos and Molly Tarvin, the Lady-Tigers were the 2017 Colonial League X-Country champions and the District XI runner-ups in the Fall.

It would be a day full of challenges for the Panthers.

All lined up and ready to get the 2018 Colonial League Track and Field season started!
