Ligonier Valley

Postby tubmill » August 3rd, 2019, 11:28 pm

The Ligonier AD finally did something nice for the folks in the Laurel Valley area of the district. They are playing United, Saturday 7, 2019 at Laurel Valley Stadium. The game will be at 1:00 P.M.. This is a throwback game. I'm told that they will be wearing throwback unis. They are going way back with the throwback idea! It is from the time before the creation of the United and Laurel Valley School Districts. The opponents will be the New Florence Wolverines and the Armagh Indians. It's kind of appropriate,  being that New Florence is celebrating their Sesquicentennial this year.  I also understand that Coach Page will be honored at this game. I have heard some grumbling and groaning about this game from some Ligonier people. They hate all things Laurel Valley, so I consider the source.

If, that is, United can field a team.

I remember last season when the consolidation of Liggy and Laurel Valley was brought up, someone from LV stated that there is basically no one from Laurel Valley on the team and if there was no consolidation that Liggy would be just as good as a Single A team.  If that's the case why would they even bother playing a game in New Florence if it has no meaning for the kids or parents who have no attachment to Laurel Valley?

    There have been guys from the Laurel Valley attendance area on the team every year! Joey Dubics was the captain his senior year. He was from Seward. Kyrie Miller, the star running back, is from Bolivar. The Beitels actually lived in the Laurel Valley attendance area, before moving to Ligonier and building a $500,000 home. Looking at this years roster, I can see ten kids from LV attendance area on the roster off the top of my head. By the way, if there was no consolidation, Ligonier would not be a single A school. Finally, the AD doing this is the decent thing to do!
