            Upper Perkiomen's softball team is back in the state tournament. On

Morgan Lindsay circles the bases after hitting a home run

in Upper Perk's vicotory over Upper Dublin.

Wednesday, the team relied on its potent offense and the solid pitching of Lily Dibble to post a 10-1 victory over Upper Dublin in the second round of the District One Class 5A Tournament.

            Morgan Lindsay, Dani Freer and Sierra Fretz each delivered three hits for the fourth-seeded Indians (16-7), who travel to No. 1 seed West Chester East on Friday for a semifinal round game Friday. Lindsay, their No. three hitter, homered. Freer, the No. four seed, doubled. Fretz, the No. five hitter who also homered, finished a triple short of the cycle.

            At least three audience members accused President Angie Fegely of not allowing public comment during the meeting, which lasted just five minutes. Tension filled the room as Schwenk traded insults with at least one of four women sitting on the other side of the room and Fegely banged her gavel attempting to calm the situation.

The political advertisement on Page 7 of the May 16, 2017 print edition was paid for by the candidate.  The required notification does appear in the bottom right segment of the ad, however the use of red ink over the yellow background, the size of the print, and the print process used for processing color pages has rendered the information nearly impossible to read.  We apologize for the confusion.
