Field Hockey’s second half surge

After a depleting 2-5 start to their 2020 campaign, the girls field hockey team rallied behind strong senior leadership and racked up 4 consecutive wins bringing their record back up to 500.

3.) Coach Beck’s 200th win

When the Knights knocked off CB East this season, beating the Patriots was not the only thing the North Penn football team was celebrating that night. Head Coach Dick Beck was awarded his 200th career win in just 19 seasons with the Knights following the victory.
