Day 2 for the Saucon Valley Panther wrestlers at the 2020 PIAA individual state championships is now history.  If nothing else, Friday’s tourney was more bitter than sweet.  Previously, on Thursday, wrestling fans saw three of Saucon’s ten grapplers bow out of the double-elimination tourney.  On Friday four more Panthers saw their season come to an end; three of them in the blood-round.  With that being said, seniors Matt Arciuolo (170), Dane Csencsits (182) and Nick Warnke (285) are the only Saucon wrestlers remaining in the championships. Arciuolo and Csencsits continue their quest in the championship bracket while Warnke is fighting back in the consy’s.

Time to Vote!: SVMS Once Again Participating In “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” Competition

As a part of Saucon Valley’s Middle School iTeam, I was excited to get a chance to participate in the “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing?” video contest. The manufacturing contest is one in which area schools are assigned a local manufacturing company. We were excited to be assigned Ocean Spray this year. We created a video to best represent this amazing company and to show everyone the interesting side of manufacturing. It was an incredible experience to get a behind the scenes look at the manufacturing process and the fundamental components of a business.
