The other teams in the league, Bellefonte, Bald Eagle, Central Martinsburg, Phillipsburg Oseola, Tyrone and Huntingdon, are all ready to play against the team to beat. After loosing some key players from the past winning season, the Lady Rams are bringing back even more skill to fight for the continuation of the Mountain League Champion title.

Penns Valley Girls Soccer player of the year Hannah Montminy reflects on the past season and talks about how she thinks the 2019 season will play out, “Last season was a dream year for us Lady Rams. Being able to claim the title of Mountain League Champions was a crazy feeling. Not only did we do that, but we also made it to the semi-finals in districts, which this programs hasn’t done for years. Being able to see what can be accomplished this past season makes it more exciting to see what our team can do this year. In order to have a winning season, we have to play like a team and trust each other, which I am sure will be no challenge.”
