2024 Outlook: “We won the conference and our AA District playoff bracket. Our goal is to put ourselves in a position to compete for those titles again. The conference is tough with teams like Karns CIty, Monitea, Clarion, and Clarion Limestone and the district playoffs with have powerful Johnsonburg too. We lost Tate Minich, the league MVP to graduation who is now at Seton Hill, but return quite a bit of talent in multiple positions. Our players have won district titles in baseball, football, and soccer within the last year so we hopeful will continue the winning tradition at Redbank Valley. ”
