"A week ago, our record was 4-10 with four games to play," said Assistant Coach Bob Colburn. "Now a week later, having played four games, our record is 8-10. What a week beating McKean, Tatnall, Cristiana, and Sanford to move from last place to third place. It is also the most wins in a season since 2008."
"Hopefully, the spirit and drive of the past week will carry over for the start of the 2018 season," Colburn continued. "The players and coaches thank all you parents who came to games and brought food and drinks for the players. All this is much appreciated by all of us."
