HORNETS TROUNCE RED RAIDERS, 62-6
The Wellsboro Varsity Football team rushed for over 350 yards on their way to their 8th straight victory with a 62-6 win against Montgomery for Homecoming on Friday, October 14.
While the Hornets gave up a late touchdown in the fourth quarter, they have only allowed 33 points on the entire season (4.13 per game), and have out-scored their opponents 216-19 in their past 4 games.
“We departmentalize the season and these last two weeks are the start of post-season for us and they’re going to mean a lot”, Hildebrand concluded. “We have to take care of business. The trip to Wyalusing is always rough and we have to focus on just that game a not look ahead to week 10. Next week is a perfect trap game so we have to take care of week 9 before we move ahead to week 10.”
Wellsboro is now 8-0 (8-0 NTL) and will be on the road on Saturday, October 22 against Wyalusing.

DECORATING DECODED – GOING GREEN
As consumers are becoming more aware of environmental issues and how they affect their homes and lifestyles, green or sustainable design is becoming more popular. It has the same emphasis on aesthetics and functionality as traditional design, but it also focuses on the impact that design has on the health and welfare of the environment. Reduce, reuse, recycle is the mantra of the green movement in a society that considers disposability commonplace. How often have you heard yourself, or someone else say, “Nothing is made to last anymore.”

Well, green design is partly about durability; using products that are made to last and do not have to be replaced frequently. It also addresses the issue of energy conservation whether it be the heating and cooling systems we use or the use of more efficient lighting. Green design seeks to improve indoor air quality by reducing toxins from paint and adhesives used in our homes, which could even be beneficial to our health.

HORNETS TOP SAYRE, 3-1 ON SENIOR NIGHT
The Wellsboro Varsity Boys Soccer team closed out the regular season with a 3-1 win over Sayre on Senior Night on Wednesday, October 19.

“The senior boys have been great,” said head coach John Shaffer. “Their effort in the summer number one. They showed up the last day of school we had our first summer session and then all through the summer twice a week. Their dedication, their commitment to the program is outstanding.”
The Hornets improve their record to 14-4 (11-3 NTL). The team will now await to see who their opponent will be in the District IV Class A playoffs.

The win improves the Lady Hornets’ record to 6-11-1 (6-7-1) to end the season.
