Kickoff Classic kicks off athletic season

The skies cleared and the crowd cheered as Penn Manor introduced its fall athletic teams and marching band during the Kickoff Classic Thursday at Comet Field.

The event included an appearance by U.S. Olympic field hockey player Jill Witmer, just back from the Summer Games in Brazil. Witmer played for Penn Manor from 2006 to 2010.

Guests enjoyed chicken dinners and performances by the Penn Manor Marching Unit and cheerleaders. The event ended a playful competition — “Who’s the Best Multi-Sport Athlete?” — that pitted teams of student athletes and coaches against each other.

Thanks to all who came out to show their Penn Manor Pride!
