On the Field
November 21, 2023
Victory after victory. Defeat after Defeat. Dallastown athletes competed on the field of the stadium, throughout their high school careers. As some seasons toppled, others rose and delivered gameplays that would stick in people’s memories for a very long time.
In the fall of 2010, the Dallastown Football team went undefeated for the first time in years. The game was the rivalry game against Red Lion. We were leading with two minutes left on the clock and Red Lion was looking like they were going to come back, but Dallastown held on and went 10-0 for the season.
“I have many memories of that stadium, from going to Dallastown/Red Lion games as a kid to graduations.” says ———–. “November 5, 2010 – Red Lion vs Dallastown – In what may be the most attended sporting event in school history, Dallastown came back to beat Red Lion to win the first conference title in 30 years and complete a 10-0 regular season.”
Now at football games, people come to watch the football team. But, we have to give credit to our amazing Dallastown Marching Band, for performing with such amazing talent every time.
“I was in the band front. We were on permitted on the football field to practice one time during the week/ 9th period on Fridays before the game. And we still pulled off complicated drills!” says DAHS band alumni ———–.
Football games were a big part of everyone’s year and hands down the most fan-packed and exciting sports event in the stadium, but there were many other amazing Dallastown sports that have exciting moments on the field.
From the countless senior nights, teacher appreciations, championships, and milestones, Soccer, Lacrosse, Track and Feild, and Feild Hockey have had so many memories that have impacted the stadium and Dallastown through their time in the stadium.
As the stadium renovations start, we will not only remember the look of the stadium, but the laughs, memories, and accomplishments that the stadium will forever hold.
