Cross Country: Boys Remain Undefeated, Girls Keep it Close

Image
On Tuesday afternoon, the cross country team hosted a meet with Annville-Cleona, Donegal, and Manheim Central. Both the boys and the girls were 2-0 heading into the meet.  The girls ran first. Annville-Cleona's Braetan Peters won the race by a whole minute with a time of 20:18. Jaclyn Martin was the top finisher for the Pioneers and the 2nd best finisher overall with a time of 21:18. Aubrey Magagna, Morgan Wright, Molly Wissler, and Keira Smecker rounded out the Pioneer top 5. The girls took a 27-33 win against the Dutchmen but fell to the Barons and Indians by margins of 5 and 3.  Unsurprisingly, Colin Whitaker took home the win in the boys' race with a time of 16:26. Six out of the top ten runners in the race belonged to the blue and white. Parker Stoner, Adrian Elia, Ben Devine, and David Pritchard were the other top 5 finishers for L-S. The Pioneers dominated the race, taking home 3 wins all by a very large margin.  The boys are now 5-0 and are uncontested at the top of the

Volleyball: Pioneers Take Down Golden Mules 3-0

Image
  On Wednesday night, the Pioneer volleyball team took the short trip down to Quarryville for a battle with the Golden Mules. The Pioneers entered the matchup with a 1-1 record, shutting out Lebanon and falling to Garden Spot. The Mules were also 1-1, defeating Cocalico but losing to Lebanon. The Pioneers were without two of their better players in Emily Mullin and Anya Myers, presenting a tough challenge for the team.  The Pioneers jumped out to an early 6-2 lead thanks to a serving run from Jenna Hoover in the first set. From there, neither team was able to gain significant momentum until Hoover went on another run to bring the Pioneers within 4 points of winning the set. Once the Pioneers brought it to set point, the Mules went on a spirited run but fell just short, losing the set 25-22.  The second set was less competitive, with the Mules unable to get on any kind of run until late in the set. With the Pioneers on the doorstep of the set win, the Mules went on another run but were

Garden Spot FFA celebrates 2020-2021 accomplishments

Throughout the summer, the Garden Spot FFA has done an extravagant amount of work to either close the season or prepare the season. In May of 2021, the officer team faced the challenge of COVID - 19 while trying to prepare for the annual awards and recognition banquet. While half of the officer team was in school and the other half was out, this made planning extremely difficult. Due to all school COVID rules, our banquet was held outside in May.  The annual awards and recognition banquet is the most memorable event of the year. FFA members are recognized for their awards and achievements, team and individual successes. Here are a few highlights to share with you. Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) Star: The placement award recognizes the students who excelled in quality record-keeping, have grown through their SAE and model what a “Star” SAE project looks like. These recipients have an SAE in the area of placement or employment.  Bryce Johnson Jeslyn Krebs Jackson Price  Alec Wa

Pioneers Pitch Another Shutout, Bring Home Lampeter Bowl

Image
  On Friday, the football team traveled to East Lampeter Township for the creatively named "Lampeter Bowl." Both teams won their games last week, with the Buckskins surging back late to defeat Garden Spot, and the boys from the west end shutting out Penn Manor.  Several Pioneer players prior to the Penn Manor game (Logan Thompson) I'd like to say the trophy matchup was a barn-burning back-and-forth shootout, but it was anything but. 20 minutes into the game, we were still waiting for the first points to be scored. Both offenses were moving the ball, but neither team was able to make the one big play to make a difference.  Late in the first half, Giovanni Malatesta found a gap and broke off a 29-yard run. A late hit was called on the Buckskins, tacking 15 yards onto the play and putting the Pioneers into pole position. Jonathan Mellinger would punch it in from the goal line a few plays later to open the scoring. The Buckskins had a strong rushing attack going, but were a b
