HEGINS – This past Thursday, Senator David G. Argall (R-Berks/Schuylkill) and Representative Mike Tobash (R-Schuylkill/Dauphin) recognized two students at Tri-Valley High School for their recent accomplishments in wrestling and music.
Danny Scheib, a senior at Tri-Valley, recently became the PIAA Class AA State Wrestling Champion in the 285-pound finals which were held at the Giant Center in Hershey. Scheib defeated his opponent, Bishop McCoy of South Side Beaver, by 3-2. Forty-one years ago, Scheib’s uncle, Steve Scheib, brought home the first state wrestling title for Tri-Valley.
Keiffer Quandel, a senior at Tri-Valley, placed first at the Region-State Band and will be competing in the upcoming Pennsylvania Music Educators Association All-State Band. Quandel acquired a passion for music and the arts at a young age and is very active in Tri-Valley’s drama club and musical productions.
“Seeing students like Danny and Keiffer continue to improve their already-impressive skills really helps to motivate their peers,” said Argall. “I wish Danny and Keiffer the best of luck, and I am certain they will continue to pursue these interests with fervor in the future.”
Tobash also praised these two young men for their recent accomplishments.
“I am always honored to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of local students and especially proud when they are from my alma mater,” stated Tobash. “As a state wrestling champion, Danny Scheib is an inspiration to the communities in the Tri-Valley school district and all student athletes who strive to be the best in their chosen sport. The same goes for Keiffer Quandel, whose dedication and talent in the arts has been exemplified by his top honors at the regional band competition. I look forward to seeing many more outstanding achievements from these two young men.”
