Friday Night Hoops to be Featured Game

Penn Manor’s boys basketball team is coming off a hot win and to add to it, Fox 43 TV has chosen Friday’s basketball game against Manheim Township as a high school frenzy “Game of the Week.”  As of now they are both undefeated in Section One basketball.

“Game of the Week” is Fox 43 television station’s weekly pick of five important sporting events in the area. Students can vote for their school’s game at

Penn Manor plans to show why this has been selected as the game of the week.  They plan to come out winners in this showdown of the unbeaten in section 1 basketball.

“Let’s get fired up,”  Penn Manor’s athletic director Jeff Roth said energetically.

Tickets are being sold at all lunches this week for $1 to make sure the gym is filled Friday. Roth is expecting a huge crowd and wants it roaring.

“I want kids who usually don’t come to the games to come and see how fun and exciting the games are,” Roth said.

This week is a pretty tough week for the Comets. They had the tornadoes Tuesday night, Manheim Township Friday and then they head off to Trinity for the weekend.

Trinity is a perennial state power team in basketball.

Roth predicts WGAL TV and Lancaster Newspapers will also cover the game Friday night.  Roth said students will definitely have the opportunity to get on TV if they attend the game.

The Comets and their crowd may be heard all the way to their opponent’s hometown. This is a chance for Penn Manor to really show its school spirit.
