ANNVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) — A 3-6 season wasn’t what Annville-Cleona wanted last season. So in 2022, the Dutchmen are focused on returning A-C back to its playoff form.

This was a team that averaged over 29 points per game, and will now be better matched in Section 5 with schools of a similar size.

The Lancaster Lebanon Section 5 teams are Kutztown, Northern Lebanon, Hamburg, Schuylkill Valley, Annville-Cleona, Lancaster Catholic, Pequea Valley and Columbia.
