Good Tuesday Morning Palmyra School District!
FROM THE DESK OF ATHLETIC DIRECTOR, Mike Papenberg: The winter season is winding down. If you have not come to a winter event yet to support your student-athletes you have 2 weeks left before we start the spring season. Here is a look at how we did last week.
The Wrestling Team wrestled its 1st playoff match since 1998. Unfortunately the Panthers lost a tough battle to Spotswood High School last Monday evening, 44-27. John Miles, Kitwana Nguyen, Zach Warnock, Pat McCarron, Tyler Domask & Zack Kahana all won their matches for the Panthers. The wrestling squad ended its team season on Wednesday with a 48-24 win over Group-3: Mainland High School. The Team finished the season with a record of 13-7, it’s best finish since 1997-1998. The Panthers will head to District and Regional Championships this weekend. Good Luck! https://www.nj.com/highschoolsports/2020/02/spotswood-middle-weights-fuel-first-round-central-jersey-1-win-over-palmyra.html
