Girls basketball returns great team

Last year’s girls basketball team was nothing short of exciting. An inexperienced lineup with a rotation of all sophomores and just one junior and senior were supposed to have a traditional rebuilding year serving to compete but mainly to develop the young talent.

The young talent proved that experience or number of upperclassmen mattered nothing to their success. The young talent, led by first team all-PAC Liberty Division selections Anna Azzara and Mac Pettinelli, with second team all-Liberty forwards Katie Tiffan and Sienna Miller was overwhelming come playoff time.

A balanced attack saw the team take home the program’s fifth straight PAC championship, runner-up in the District One Tournament, and two wins in the State Tournament.

Senior center Meg Robbins is also another name to look out for, as her post presence and rebounding complements the high-paced and willing-three-point shooting offense that established a 25-7 total record in the 2021-2022 season. Expect even bigger things for the up-and-coming squad as the Rams seek out a sixth consecutive conference championship.

After a thrilling season for the boys basketball program, the squad returns to the court this season after falling just short of a PAC Championship.
The team returns more experienced compared to last season. With most of last year’s team intact, the Rams will have an easier time figuring out their style of play compared to other teams. Despite absences from Jake Kressly and Cole Turner, Caleb Little remains on the squad as a dominant player who can drive to the basket. As the season rolls around, the Rams will be ready to take on their schedule and will have a clear shot of a PAC Championship.
Expect seniors Alex Lewis and Mike McKenna as well as junior EJ Cambpell and sophomore Jacob Nguyen to have big seasons for the Rams.

Spring-Ford seems poised for another successful wrestling season. The Rams won a PAC championship last season and sent a large number of wrestlers to the PIAA state tournament including Quinn Smith, Anthony Attilio, and Cole Smith. All those contributors are returning to the team this year. The Rams also went to a duals state appearance, but unfortunately lost to Dallastown. However, the Rams will use this loss as fuel to propel them through the season, and make another run at States.

Spring-Ford Hockey is back for another season of exciting action on the ice. The boys finished at 6-6, but that record doesn’t do their fascinating season justice. A 5-4 overtime victory against Perkiomen Valley on Thanksgiving Eve highlighted the 2021-22 campaign. The Rams will be without recent graduates Gavin Tarity, Zachary Neild, Justin Kratz and Tucker Miller this season. However, there are reasons to be optimistic. Current senior Ryan Debro and junior Hayden Wedemeyer are still present for Spring-Ford.

Spring-Ford Winter Track is returning for another season, but this time without high jump state champion, Nene Mokonchu. The team will also be without Alex Teufel, who placed 13th in pole vault at the Pennsylvania indoor championships. Other graduated seniors include the likes of Ryan Trimble, Justin Russell, and Colby Basalyga. Current seniors Travell Wellons and Leo Aguilar will be back to lead the charge for the Rams.

Another exciting season for Spring-Ford Swimming is on the horizon. The girls’ team ended last season on a very high note. Current senior Ashley Gutshall put together an amazing run, earning both a spot on the All-Area First Team and a medal at states. Senior Maris Sadowski and junior Sydney Koehler also achieved All-Area Honorable Mentions. First-year coach Jack Graham was named All-Area Coach of the Year after leading the squad to a 9-1 PAC record.

Additionally, the boys have several young swimmers returning. Junior Patrick Baganski will look to lead after securing a spot on the Second Team All-Area roster last year. Fellow junior Dylan Dayrit and sophomore Nate Reagan will look to keep the good times going. The team finished last year’s PAC play with a 9-1 record, and they have no intentions of slowing down. However, they will be without graduated swimmers Jacob Dourte, Adam Drover and Devon Dayrit.
