Montgomery Locals Dec. 10

By Staff | Dec 9, 2014

The Montgomery High School winter athletic programs kicked off this past Friday night with the Lady Raiders at home against Benton, the Boys’ Basketball team away at Midd-West, and the wrestlers in a tournament in Bloomsburg. All teams had a strong first showing with a girls’ win at the final buzzer, a hard fought loss to the boys in overtime, and several wrestlers in the finals. Support your local athletic programs this winter.
