For junior Madisen Kling, track isn’t just something she enjoys. It runs in her blood, it’s a family tradition.
Kling is an all around athlete, turning heads in every sport she plays. Kling has been playing soccer for six years and track for five years.
She has earned the starting varsity soccer goalie position since her freshman year and is now a top discus thrower as well.
In fact, Kling plans on continuing her track career after high school. She wants to go college and wants to earn a scholarship of some kind, in order to throw discus.
In terms of this season, Madisen believes she has had a pretty good season so far.
“I’ve had some rough patches or rocky starts but I think that I’ve always managed to push through,” said Kling humbly.
Despite rocky starts and rough patches, Kling made an astounding achievement this season. She broke the 28 year old discus record, made by Nan Strawbridge in 1989.

The number 100 has forever been harrowed in the sports world. Whether it is an NFL running back reaching 100 touchdowns in a career, or it is Wilt Chamberlain holding up the paper with 100 on it, signifying his famous 100 point game.
High school wrestling is no different when it comes to the importance of the number. Especially at Red Lion wrestling, which has a rich wrestling history, with names like Lloyd and Nguyen littering the 100 wins banner.
“Wrestling at Red Lion, knowing the rich history of this sport here is absolutely mind blowing,” senior wrestler Dylan Gurreri said. “Knowing all the big name people that have come through this program and knowing what they have done really is what set my goals for myself.”

The Red Lion girls basketball team has been a powerhouse in York County. Under former coach Don Dimoff, the team won a total of 14 York-Adams county championships, along with a streak of 12 straight from 2001-2012.
However, Mr. Dimoff is coaching at Millersville University now, leaving a coaching vacancy for the team for the first time in 22 years.
“Don was here for 22 years,” Athletic Director Arnold Fritzius said. “So we knew going into it that finding somebody to replace Mr. Dimoff was going to be virtually impossible.”
The impossible was reached however, as the next coach was found right within the program. Assistant coach, Bill Novak, was elevated to the head coaching position and done so at the suggestion of Don Dimoff himself.
