2018 Success in Athletics!

Burrell Bucs knocked it out of the park this past 2017-2018 school year, with four section champions for team sports and several individual placements from our students. In fact, the wrestling team was WPIAL Champion for the 12th straight year! Other section champs included boys basketball, girls track, and baseball.

We’d also like to highlight and congratulate the many students who placed individually in their sport.
