Spring football has arrived in Delaware County.
The Del Val League will embark on a six-week campaign beginning Friday night. In September, the Del Val announced it would not participate in fall sports due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic. The league-wide shutdown enabled athletic directors from each school to explore options for the spring. The Del Val has partnered up with other schools in the state that canceled their fall athletics and formed the United X League.
In addition to Del Val members Academy Park, Chester, Chichester, Interboro and Penn Wood, the United X League will comprise Cheltenham, Harry S Truman and Norristown, who are PIAA District 1 members. District 3’s Reading and District 12’s Father Judge have joined the conference as well.
