The Warriors were a very talented team, but so were the Trojans.

Sophomore Avi Engel was satisfied despite the loss.

“It sucks to lose, but it was an overall good game, and there is a lot to improve on for next season,” said Engel.

The Trojans will now advance in districts and perhaps qualify for the state tournament.

Susquehannock had a very good season finishing with an overall record of 13-6 and 10-3 in their conference plus were ranked 53 in the entire state of Pennsylvania.

Susquehannock will return next season with a strong core of juniors.

There will be a lot of leadership and responsibility that will have to be picked up next season.

Sophomore Drew McAleer is already looking forward to taking the field.

“This year was pretty great as a whole, and I am just looking forward to keeping it going next season,” said McAleer.
