Manheim Township

Coach’s outlook: “Goalie play, face-offs, depth of midfield, and senior leadership will all be huge strengths and important assets for our season. We look to continue the MT tradition of up-tempo transition and high-scoring offensive play, while bringing a greater intensity to the Riding game, and impeccable execution to team defensive schemes. Within Central PA, Hempfield, Lampeter-Strasburg, and Manheim Township will all field strong teams that will drive one another for bragging rights in the L-L League and District 3.”
