At Saucon Valley, the Panther wrestlers know they go into this season as the hunted and not the hunter.

The wrestling season got going with big league duals right at the outset. Including the dual at Parkland last week between the Trojans and Easton. League matches mean no time to ease into things, and at Saucon Valley the Panthers know they are one of the teams others are targeting. The Panthers put together a great year last year, the kind of year that puts a program on the map statewide.Saucon Valley won a league title, and finished with silver medals in the district tournament, losing to eventual state champion Becahi. It was a good run for the Panthers and a strong group of seniors. The goal for a slightly younger team this year is to try and do it again.
