Saucon Valley Wrestling Celebrates Another Season Of Success

On Monday dozens of guests travelled to the Steel Club for an evening set aside specifically to safely celebrate another great year of Saucon Valley Wrestling.  Hosted by the Saucon Valley Wrestling Club, members of the youth, middle school and varsity programs along with their families and friends took time to break bread and share some pre-COVID memories from the 2019-2020 season.  It didn’t matter that the season-ending tradition was postponed due to coronavirus, a three-and-a-half month delay did nothing to dampen the spirits of those in attendance.  The feeling of a tight knit, family atmosphere was still evident even though masks and social distancing were a part of the night’s protocol.
