Last season, Montour competed in Class 2A in the WPIAL's three-class system and finished with a 12-3-2 record. This year, the Spartans have moved up to 3A in the new four-class system and could be doing even better.
The Spartans enter the week with a 11-2-1 record with games left against West Allegheny, Baldwin, Obama Academy and Thomas Jefferson. Montour has already clinched the section championship in Section 3 and is riding a five-game winning streak.
Outscoring its opponents, 45-6, the Spartans enter the final week now looking to improve its fate in the playoff seeding. Of the four section champions, Montour has the lowest winning percentage, but the group is bunched and the best record belongs to Thomas Jefferson. The Jaguars host the Spartans next Tuesday.
The seeding could be crucial, too, as the Spartans look for postseason success. Last season, Montour reached the WPIAL quarterfinals.
