NEW HOLLAND, Pa (WHTM) — The Garden Spot football team is ready to finally get over the hump and earn their spot into the district playoffs.

Each year the Spartans are climbing in the win column, ending last season with a 4-6 record in Class 4A. They are hoping to return Garden Spot to where it was back in the early 2010’s when the program punched their ticket to four straight postseason appearances (2011-14).
