For the fifth year in a row Coach Chad Shirk and Company will be heading west on I78 to the Giant Center in Hershey for the PIAA team championships. With all that experience and a second place finish last year, the Panthers enter very familiar territory.
Winning 10 of the 14 bouts last night, Saucon Valley qualified for the state tournament as the #1 seed out of District XI with a lopsided 51-18 victory over the Wilson Warriors.
