Pioneers become District 3 4A champs after upset over Berks Catholic

Image
On Friday, the Lampeter-Strasburg football team beat Berks Catholic, 35-21. The victory made the Pioneers District 3 Class AAAA champions!


Here's a couple of stats surrounding the win. First, this is the program's second district title ever. The last one came more than ten years ago in 2007. In addition, the Pioneers are the second team EVER to win a district crown after entering the bracket as the number eight seed. Finally, all three of those games were on the away.

This Friday L-S travels to Hollidaysburg to challenge Thomas Jefferson in the semi-finals.

Go, Pioneers!

Band Recognition Night: Pocket Trumpet Player's Perspective

Image
On Tuesday, November 19 Band Recognition Night was held. It was a super fun and emotional night that I will remember for a long time.


There were food and drinks, heartfelt speeches, funny photos, and amazing videos. We played a trivia Kahoot about the band staff and our show, and out of 157 players, I won!!

After Mr. Royer had always told us how it's always about the group and not the individual, each person was recognized for however many years they have participated in marching band, from first-year freshman, to a first-year senior!

One of my favorite moments of the night was a video put together by Mrs. Sanderson. It had interviews from seniors about what being part of the band means to them, and it followed the band at the E-Town football game.

Recognition Night made me miss being in Band already. It felt like I was saying goodbye to the seniors and the rest of the band, even if I'd be seeing them at school today.

Lampeter-Strasburg rallies for dramatic 30-27 win at Bishop McDevitt, earns district title bid

Do you believe in miracles?

On Friday night, Lampeter-Strasburg erased a 20-point halftime deficit to beat Bishop McDevitt, 30-27. This was one of the biggest wins in the history of Pioneer football having never before beaten Bishop McDevitt.

The football team went into a game we thought we wouldn't win, but we did. It was such a cool experience for the football and cheerleaders! It is a game none of us will forget.


The first half L-S was down 20-0, and it wasn't looking too good for us. But the third quarter was a whole different team. The team came out and scored two touchdowns in the third quarter, and were on fire. In the 4th quarter, the score was 20-23 and the crowd was crazy until McDevitt ran in another touchdown, making the score 27-23.

Luckily, L-S wasn't ready to give up. We got the ball and the boys ran it in for a touchdown, making the score 26-30. It was an intense fourth, we were all hoping that McDevitt wouldn't score again, and our defense did a great j…
