For junior Madisen Kling, track isn’t just something she enjoys. It runs in her blood, it’s a family tradition.
Kling is an all around athlete, turning heads in every sport she plays. Kling has been playing soccer for six years and track for five years.
She has earned the starting varsity soccer goalie position since her freshman year and is now a top discus thrower as well.
In fact, Kling plans on continuing her track career after high school. She wants to go college and wants to earn a scholarship of some kind, in order to throw discus.
In terms of this season, Madisen believes she has had a pretty good season so far.
“I’ve had some rough patches or rocky starts but I think that I’ve always managed to push through,” said Kling humbly.
Despite rocky starts and rough patches, Kling made an astounding achievement this season. She broke the 28 year old discus record, made by Nan Strawbridge in 1989.

As this softball season comes to a close, some seniors are saying goodbye to the sport they’ve played for years, as the juniors are preparing to step up to the plate.
Seniors Brianna Gonzalez, Kayla Moore, Megan Teal, Megan Confer, and Chloe Rentzel are saying goodbye to Red Lion.
“My fondest memory would be the bus rides and hanging out with my team, and doing team bonding stuff,” Moore said. “I’ll miss my teammates the most, because they are like my family.”

Conflict runs the world we live in. Everywhere from world relations to big government politics, conflict is at the center of it.
The world of sports is no different, as the very essence of sports is pitting one person or team against another. From those competitions, come things like hatred, dislike, and some of the most exciting sporting events that the public has ever seen.

The Red Lion girls basketball team has been a powerhouse in York County. Under former coach Don Dimoff, the team won a total of 14 York-Adams county championships, along with a streak of 12 straight from 2001-2012.
However, Mr. Dimoff is coaching at Millersville University now, leaving a coaching vacancy for the team for the first time in 22 years.
“Don was here for 22 years,” Athletic Director Arnold Fritzius said. “So we knew going into it that finding somebody to replace Mr. Dimoff was going to be virtually impossible.”
The impossible was reached however, as the next coach was found right within the program. Assistant coach, Bill Novak, was elevated to the head coaching position and done so at the suggestion of Don Dimoff himself.

It was a dark cool morning when 5,000 people lined up to run the annual Turkey Trot race on the morning of Thanksgiving for the YMCA.
Caleb Gatchell, 21, of Red Lion won the race with a chip time of 15:00.08. Gatchell ran for the track team and cross country team for Red Lion during his high school career.
The fundraising for the Turkey Trot is very important because it goes to the YMCA Membership for all organization. This organization offers help to anyone who can not pay for the membership. Without the help it would cause them to not be able to stay fit in a comfortable and safe environment.
