“Having lost all but one starter from last years senior laden team, Pennsbury looks to its youth to help guide them through a very tough 2013 season that includes several non-league games against pre-season favorites like Radnor, CB East, & Penncrest along with an always tough SOL National Conference slate.

“Loosing all of that talent on both sides of the ball from last season has been a difficult adjustment, but we really believe the team is buying into the system and that we have enough veteran leadership to help get the most out of our younger & less experienced players.”
