Humes leads Panthers

SAEGERTOWN — With a spot in the District 10 Class AA team duals already wrapped up, Friday night’s Region 3 wrestling match at Saegertown High School was all about the Panthers’ lone senior Matt Humes.

Humes won his final match at Saegertown with a fall over Aaron Hoover in 3:13 at 145 pounds to lead the Panthers to a 51-21 win over Youngsville on Senior Night. Humes’ fall started off the night and was followed by four pins in Saegertown’s next five bouts.

Saegertown (10-5, 8-1 Region 3) and Youngsville (8-6, 6-3) are among the eight teams who will compete in the District 10 Class AA team championships on Feb. 1 at Sharon High School.

    The whistle blew and Sean Spence sprinted forward, each cathartic step distancing the linebacker from the horrific knee injury that threatened to end his NFL career before it even really began.

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?
