We will publish the date of our PBI once we learn availability of McGonigle arena. Since the men's team was dropped from varsity to club status, we have no priority in scheduling for the arena and must await completion of the women's basketball schedule to know when the arena is open. It is hoped this will happen by mid-September. We'd like to remain on Presidents' Weekend as usual, but our women's gymnastics team has scheduled a quad meet for Sat, Feb 14, which takes priority and interferes with our usual plans.
Congrats to our level 4 PA State Champion team!
