Kapenstein to coach Raiders

The Middletown Area School Board has appointed Larry Kapenstein as the new head coach for the boys’ varsity soccer team next fall, the board announced at a meeting on Monday, March 24.

 

Kapenstein replaces Sergei Koreba, who, after one year at Middletown, led the Blue Raiders to a 4-14 overall record in 2013.

 

“Larry is a familiar face to many of our student athletes and we look forward to the new season this fall under Larry’s leadership,” said Superintendent Lori Suski.

To Middletown track and field coach Llewellyn Skees, the future is very much up in the air for the 2014 season.

In the past six years, the Lower Dauphin’s girls’ track team has won five Keystone Division titles in the Mid-Penn Conference. They haven’t lost a dual meet in four years.
