Saucon sophomore Talitha Diggs qualified in style for the 2oom Day-Two Final. She broke her old Colonial League record of 25.47 with a new 25.36.

The Saucon Valley Panther Track and Field team is finding their share of success at the 2018 Colonial League Track and Field Championships.  The meet is being held in conjunction with the East Penn Conference Championships at Whitehall High School.  Saucon Valley has yet to crown a champion but has found plenty of the podium. The Championships continue today and the Panthers will likely earn some more hardware. And, it is likely that a Panther could break a Colonial League Meet record……….AGAIN!

Panther junior Patrick Patterson-Zuber earned a silver medal in the discus throw.
