Overall, the team compiled a 68-49 record, with multiple wins over nationally ranked and college teams.

Team members headed for national competition include captain Connor Mayers, a junior; senior Chad Hoglund; junior Shane Mosley; and sophomores Claire DeVinney and Gabe McGough. The coaches are Penn Manor teachers Chris Meier and Sallie Bookman.
