Tioga County Sports Report for Penn York Valley


TAYLOR MADE: TIME FOR AREA GRIDDERS TO PUT UP OR SHUT UP (2018-10-26)
My heart breaks for the Spencer-Van Etten / Candor football team. The Eagles went 3-6 this season, but had the ball bounced their way a little more, they might be 8-1 right now. Just look at some of their losses ó Windsor (4), Newark Valley (5), Whitney Point (6), Dryden (7) and Tioga (8).

Tioga County Sports Report
The 2018 high school football season is at its midway point, so letís see where we stand.

Newark Valley, Spencer-Van Etten / Candor and Owego all have the capability of being around when the Section IV playoffs begin. NV and Owego, barring catastrophe, are shoe-ins. SVEC can stay alive with a win this week, but will be "realistically" eliminated with a loss. ...more

TAYLOR MADE: MILESTONES & MORE (2018-09-17)
Quietly, and without much fanfare, the Owego varsity volleyball program won its 100th consecutive match last Tuesday. While the publicity of a long win streak is nice, if you can sneak under the radar, less press often means less pressure on the athletes. ...more
