POTTSTOWN PA – To simply call the last three days “winning” ones for Pottsgrove High School sports teams would be gross understatement, Pottsgrove School District Director of Athletics Gary DeRenzo noted Sunday (Nov. 4, 2012).
The boys cross-country team won its first state championship. The varsity football team was crowned as Pioneer Athletic Conference (PAC-10) champions. And the boys soccer team moved one step closer to its own championship season. In short, DeRenzo said, “the Pottsgrove School District had a very busy weekend.”
