Hornets turn up heat, top Montgomery
After a slow first half against Montgomery on Friday, September 7, the Wellsboro Varsity Football team scored 26 unanswered points to notch their third straight win to start 2018.

“For whatever reason we didn’t come out ready to play,” said head coach Matt Hildebrand following the game. “I don’t know what that reason was, we’ll definitely have a better week of practice hopefully. I don’t know if it was the weather this week or what, but we definitely came out flat at home so we really have to clean that up because next week that will lose us a football game.”
Emergency 101: Who’s Responding – Part 1
We all know the importance of the 911 system and the ability for people to call for help when something goes wrong. Because of that the 911 system has been carefully regulated and monitored for many years to ensure that callers get the best quality service they can.

But how well does the system work after the 911 call for service has been dispatched to the Emergency Medical Services and fire departments? In Tioga County, the number of volunteer emergency responders has been declining.
Tomatoes, Onions, and Peppers, Oh my!

Wellsboro girls roll to 8-0 win
Kerrah Clymer scored a hat trick to lead the Wellsboro Girls Soccer team to an 8-0 win over Williamson on Thursday, September 13.

“We knew coming in that they didn’t have a lot, but weren’t trying to run the score up,” head coach Scott Burrous said. “We tried different girls to score and got different girls to score. It was fun. One of our goals is to prepare for districts and sometimes you can move people around when you ge the opportunities to see who can play these positions.”
