Bethlehem Catholic Recalls Jeff Karam as Head Coach
So this is big news. Honestly, when I first saw this on social media I thought “who would make something like that up?” Well, turns out, it really happened. Bethlehem Catholic announced on Thursday that head coach Rick Thompson was out and the guy he replaced, Jeff Karam, was back in. It is a strange turn of events in Bethlehem after seeing Rick Thompson get less than a year with the Golden Hawks and compiling a (6-1) record. That lone loss came to Jeff Karam’s brother, Jody, last week against Liberty.
Our good friend Tom Housenick of The Morning Call was the first to break the news and has been providing updates on this developing situation.

Mifflin County Tops #15 Cumberland Valley (42-20)
This shakes things up. Mifflin County entered the season ranked in the Top 25 but fell to a young Central Dauphin (41-27) early-on, which dropped them out. Central Dauphin was beat by Cumberland Valley last month. Now Mifflin County beats Cumberland Valley. And I wonder why my head hurts when doing State Rankings.
Mifflin County pulled the upset, on the road, and 2-time State Medalist senior Christian Fisher recorded his 100th career win in the process. They are now (6-1) heading into their own Husky Duals this weekend.
FINAL: After being down, 7-0, Mifflin County Varsity Wrestling comes in as road dogs and defeats Cumberland in its own gymnasium for a huge conference win, 45-20.
