FUTCH IS IN!!! Sprinter Reinstated into State Meet!

After a nearly unanimous vote Thursday afternoon (May 24), Penn Wood's Eric Futch was REINSTATED for the PIAA Outdoor Track and Field State Championships!

Interview with Penn Wood coach Lenny Jordan a few hours after the decision was rendered. Jordan said that his overall impression of the PIAA Board was greatly enhanced by the questioning which was "focused directly on the care of the athletes."

After having two appeals denied, Penn Wood’s Eric Futch hopes the third time will be the charm.

The two-time All-Delco sprinter and hurdler will have a chance to plead his case to the PIAA Board of Directors during its meeting today at the Four Points by Sheraton in Chambersburg. The hearing is slated for 11 a.m.
