April 21 – Week in Review

Over the last week, the Knights suffered their first loss (a 10-inning battle with Souderton) leaving their record at 8-1; 3-1 in conference. The JV squad was 2-2 for the week.

The highlight of the week, however, was our annual Autism Awareness Game where North Penn’s Ben Hartranft sang the National Anthem and threw out the first pitch. Ben was also featured on Fox29 – http://www.fox29.com/news/249843259-story. It’s great to be a Knight!
