If you could use a little more adventure in your Block 1 Flex, consider joining the new Tabletop Role Playing Game Club. You’ve heard of Dungeons & Dragons, but there are many other games in which you invent a character to play in an unfolding story that you help to create. Some of them, like D&D, involve fantasy with swords and magic, but others are about science fiction, superheroes, vampires, mystery, and more. Some games can be played cooperatively without needing to find someone to be the Game Master, and some can even be played alone for those less interested in playing with a group. We can explore them all in Block 1 Flex this spring–just email or speak to Mr. Blowers in room C263 as soon as possible.

Friday, October 22, 2021, Friday Flex

It was a golden night for our field hockey and girls soccer teams last night as both teams won their Lancaster Lebanon League Championship Games. at Conestoga Valley, the field hockey team trailed Township 1-0 early the game but that did not last long. 53 seconds after the Blue Streaks scored, Riley Robinson tied up the game off an assist from Izzy Thatcher. Then as time expired in the second quarter Tristan Groff scored on a corner that was started by Avery Bradburn to take a 2-1 lead. That was all the Comets needed as the CC Charles kept the Blue Streaks out of the net the rest of the game. The defense played amazing and fought off the Township pressure late in the game. Later in the evening at Warwick, the girls soccer also defeated Manheim Township by a score of 2-1. The Comets had two shots on goal for the game and they made the most of them as they both made their way past the Blue Streak goalie. The first goal came with 1:47 left in the first half as Lily Sugra found Carly Keene who got the scoring started. Township tied the game in the second half, but that was their only goal of the game. Just like in the field hockey game, our girls soccer defense and goaltending was outstanding. Goalie Allie Burkholder made many amazing saves to keep the Streak scoreless the rest of the game. Then with 1:47 to play in regulation, off a throw-in, Lily Sugra collected a pass from Lauren Stoner, and fired the game winner home. Congratulations to both teams. You have made Penn Manor proud. Next up is the district 3 playoffs which start up next week.

Thank you to everyone that came out last night and made our first Fall Fest a success. A shout out to Avery Groff, Erik Hinkle, and their friends for organizing and working a lot of the activities.
