The senior high wrestling program has had bright spots in recent years. From 2017 graduate Dylan Gurreri reaching 100 wins in his final year to multiple wrestlers qualifying for a chance at the postseason last year.
With a total of almost 40 junior high and senior high School athletes attending preseason workouts the future looks to be shining very bright for the program.

Two years ago the Red Lion girls basketball team cut downthe nets at York College following their victory in the county championship against Central. It’s accomplishments like this one that the team wants to achieve again.
Finishing last season 11-11 and disappointingly missing out on districts by one spot, they’re hoping to improve upon last season. What will help this be possible? “A more aggressive defensive scheme this year,” said head coach Bill Novak.

The competition squad originated in 2001, by Angie Masser, an English teacher and cheerleading coach at the high school. Masser has coached football, basketball, and competition cheer for Red Lion.

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.”

Swimming may seem like a quiet sport at first, since all of the athletes are holding their breath the entire time, but a Red Lion swimming meet is anything but silent.
Despite the hot and humid atmosphere, the bleachers are crammed with enthusiastic parents, siblings, and swimming alumni. In such an enclosed space, the roar of the crowd and athletes rivals that of a football stadium. Everything from the encouraging chants to the coach’s yellow and white Converse screams school spirit.
Athletes are always crowded on the side of the pool, ready to scream encouragement at their teammates. Their spirit percolates through everything, making the team more connected.

Red Lion’s varsity swim team has made rebuilding a priority this year.
“We had a top few swimmers graduate last year,” said Hannah Coligan, head varsity swim coach, “so we need the younger swimmers to step up and fill spots.”
And a few of them have. Coach Coligan called junior Jacob Lorenzen “an energizer bunny” and the “master of distance,” while sophomore David White is versatile with strength in various strokes.
On the girls’ team, senior Claire Aggen is one of the team’s strongest swimmers, both in and out of the pool. “She can out-bench, -squat, and -deadlift anyone on the team,” Coligan said.
