  • Chargers fueled in ‘18 by early exit in ‘17

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – Sometimes coaches and fans – and sometimes opposing coaches -- don’t always see the world from the same perspective.

    For the first time since the program shifted to the Sixth Region starting with the 2006 season, the Chargers did not advance out of district play. The red and gold suffered a frustrating 5-4 loss to Fern Creek in the semi-finals.
