Football Division Championship

This school year the football team has been a major focus of Susquehannock. The Warriors ended up taking the Division Title with an exciting win against Dover High School. Up to that point the Warriors had only taken a total of two loses and eight wins making this the best season Susquehannock has had in over ten years. The Warriors did end up losing in the first round of districts at home, but the students and staff were proud of the team for going so far.

Fall Sports

Fall sports for the 2017-2018 concluded with the best season yet, with almost every fall team this season clenching a spot in districts. Warriors boys soccer concluded this year’s season with the best record (17-1) for a regular season in school history, according to coach Brett Maxwell from an interview conducted earlier this year. The football team making it to districts was also a large surprise in this year to many. Other teams that went to districts include: field hockey (11-6) , girls soccer (13-3) and golf. Senior Kendel Abrams also made it far within her own golf career. Senior Molly Hogan and junior Julianne Cassady from the girls tennis team also made in the districts for doubles.
