Although the Saucon Valley varsity baseball team’s postseason came to an end with their loss to Holy Ghost Prep in the PIAA 4A tournament quarterfinals Thursday, the team has much to be proud of, having won Saucon’s first District 11 championship in over 20 years.

The Panthers lost to the Bensalem team 6-1 in a game that was played at Villanova University’s ballpark in Plymouth Meeting, near Philadelphia.

Lehigh Valley Live published a detailed account of the game, in which it was noted that many of the players on this year’s Panther team will be returning to play again next year.
