2-21-17 update from AD Scott Snyder
Another great week for Susquehanna Valley student-athletes and teams, as we are now completely into post-season play in our winter sports. Congratulations on some great accomplishments so far, and the best of luck to our teams and individuals who are still in action over the next few weeks.

BOWLING
The Varsity Girls Bowling team placed 3rd at the NYS Qualifier (behind U-E and Horseheads) at Valley Lanes in Waverly on 2/17. Rachel Weyant led the squad with a 177 average, and advanced to the NYS Championships, which will be held in Rochester on March 5th. Alyssa Barrett bowled well and finished with a 168 average, but just missed out on advancing to States. Way to go Rachel, and good luck at States!

WRESTLING
Richie Knapp, who won the Section IV State Qualifier at 195 lbs. just over a week ago, is preparing for this week's NYS Wrestling Championships. Richie will be heading to Albany for this Friday and Saturday event (2/24-2/25). Good luck Richie!
