LANDISVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) — Hempfield had a taste of the playoffs in 2021, and they’re hungry for more in 2022. The Black Knights finished last season with a 7-5 record, losing in the second round of the PIAA District III Class 6A playoffs.

Hempfield was fueled by that loss in the offseason and expects to be back in the position to advance further this season.
