Details emerged regarding the death of Timothy Paciello, Jr., and the subsequent vehicular homicide and lying charges against Robert Sitler at a preliminary hearing infront of District Justice Edward C. Kropp’s on Jan. 11, according to the Mercury. Sitler, of Perkiomen Township, is accused of killing Pottsgrove High School student Paciello as he was crossing East High Street on Nov. 12, and then orchestrating a lie that his girlfriend, Denise Dinnocenti, was the driver and coercing her children, 11-and 13-year-old-sons, to lie to the police as well. Dinnocenti allegedly agreed to state she was driving because Sitler pled guilty to manslaughter in 2006 when he caused a head-on collision with a 67-year-old woman in Alabama. Several …

Perkiomen Valley battled more than the Falcons in a Pac-10 pink event
As the Vikings trotted onto the turf at Thomas J Keenan Stadium on Friday night, a foe far more imposing than the Pottsgrove Falcons was in the Perkiomen Valley community's sights. The event hosted an effort to raise money for the fight against breast cancer. Coach Reed's squad, the PV Football club and the more than 500 people, in attendance had targeted in their collective sights, In a pre-game ceremony, cancer survivors and their families were welcomed to the track to be honored as a moment of silence was shared by all for those who have been lost to the dreaded disease.

The girls are victorious in the PIAA District 1 Class AAA championship game.
Sometimes, destiny has a funny way of revealing itself. As Pottsgrove and Pope John Paul II took the field on Thursday in the PIAA Class AAA District One Championship game, it was a certainty that one squad would claim the first district championship in its school’s history. As Golden Panthers Manager John Bilella watched his usually sure-handed squad commit five errors in the first two innings, he must have thought that Lady Destiny had a cruel joke planned for him. It turned out to be a false alarm, as the 19-hit barrage launched by Pope John Paul II was too much for Pottsgrove to counter, propelling Bilella’s troops to a 12-6 victory at Rams field. Pope John Paul II, (8-9 league, 12-9 overall) jumped out of the gate posting two runs in …

The final score was Perkiomen Valley 10, Pottsgrove 2.
In a season that has been full of “What ifs?” and “What might have beens” for manager Bill Feight and the Vikings, Tuesday night’s senior celebration was a microcosm of the entire season. At times this season, the Vikings have exhibited the talent and tenacity that had pre-season predictions projecting Perkiomen Valley in the thick of the hunt for the Pioneer Athletic Conference title. Then, there has been lapses that have cost the Vikings dearly, with examples such as the four-run lead that vanished against the Wildcats in the sixth inning, or the escape of the Bears when PV led until the final at bat. “We have definitely been frustrated this year,” said senior Andrew Kenney, who is Bloomsburg-bound next year. “We felt coming in that we …

Perkiomen Valley 7, Pottsgrove 6
Vikings head coach Andy Wagner has high expectations when it comes to his Vikings lacrosse squad that finished third in the Pac-10 last season with a 9-5 record in league play. Monday night’s matchup with the visiting Falcons was a great litmus test on how ready Wagmer’s young squad is to meet the lofty goals he and his staff have set. However, the Vikings had no easy task dispatching of Pottsgrove, who rolled into Graterford with a bit of a collective chip on their shoulders from the memory of the drubbing they suffered at the hands of Perk Valley last season. The Falcons battled the Vikings tooth and nail for 48 minutes, knotting the game at six apiece when D.J. Ludy beat Mike Filopanti on the short side. In fact, it took a goal by …
