The New Hope-Solebury High School football team continues its record-breaking ways, currently standing at an unprecedented 8-0 for the season, and remains on target to win the Bicentennial Athletic Conference Championship.

The Lions have 11 seniors on their squad, and they were saluted on Oct. 23 during Senior Night. The team went on that evening to trounce Morrisville 60-0.

Next up for the Lions is Saturday’s duel at the George School at 1:30 p.m., followed by their final regular season game at 7 p.m. on Nov. 7 at Delco Christian — perhaps the toughest match-up of the season.
