Manheim Central’s Will Bentancourt  will try to secure his 4th League Championship as he leads the Barons on their quest to nail down their third straight League Tournament Championship and 5th overall.  Look for Hempfield, Garden Spot and Northern Lebanon, all undefeated in League matches and currently atop their respective section standings, to have something to say about that.

Action gets underway at 4:30 p.m. on Friday with championship wrestling through the quarterfinals and 3 rounds of consolations.  Wrestling continues Saturday morning, January 25th with semifinals and all remaining consolation rounds, including the medal bouts.  Then at 3 p.m. it is down to one mat for the finals, just as nature intended!

Possible Football Merger with Berks League

The Lancaster-Lebanon League along with the Berks County Interscholastic Athletic Association have announced that they have entered discussions regarding a possible merger in the sport of football.  Discussions are in the early stages and center on the next realignment cycle which will not take place until the fall of 2022.

These preliminary conversations follow negotiations involving the two leagues that occurred during the past realignment cycle. Both leagues decided that more data was needed to make a more informed decision.

Ron Kennedy, Executive Director of the Lancaster-Lebanon League, says that although talks are early, he is excited that talks have opened back up. “We just felt that we needed more information, and we are in the information gathering stage as we speak, but we are excited to open up the conversations again.”
