L-S thespians help open Lancaster Chamber's 146th Annual Dinner

During a night filled with business leaders, their guests and clients, (and Philadelphia Eagles' Quarterback, Carson Wentz!), a few Lampeter-Strasburg students took to the stage to open the Lancaster Chamber's 146th Annual Dinner. 
Straight out of the award winning movie "The Greatest Showman", Third Graders Piper Davidson, Cooper Frizado, and Zack Frizado, Seventh Grader Tanner Emerling, and Seniors Nolan Davidson and Brendan Massar dressed in "steampunk circus" dazzled the crowd with singing and dancing to open and close the event. 
Having only two days to pull together a crowd-pleasing opening, they worked with other students active in local theater to entertain over 2600 guests! It truly was a night to remember!

L-S Softball Comes Out on Top

The Lampeter-Strasburg Softball team had many accomplishments this season in section three. The varsity team ended with the section title, beating their rivals, Donegal, two days in a row. 
The Lady Pioneers only posted three losses all season. They lost their first two games, first against Dallastown and second against Donegal, and later in the season against Penn Manor. 
Going into what turned out to be the last game of the season, they were behind Donegal by one game. A win meant a tie-breaker for the section title, a loss meant second place and a final game against Warwick.
The softball team played fantastically that Tuesday afternoon. They ended up defeating the team 9-3. The game featured a tremendous over-the-fence home run. The home run was a good thirty feet over the fence before it finally hit the ground. With the win, the team had forced another game the next day.
The final game started off with a 3-0 L-S lead after the first inning. That got extended to 5-0. Donegal was b…
