Wednesday, December 19, 2018 by SAM MATTA in Sports

Schuylkill, Colonial appear set to combine

The winds of change are going to hit the area soon.

In a little over a week, fall will turn to winter. But there is a change on the local sports scene that could come blowing in too.

Local athletic directors certainly have a Christmas wish list to hang on the tree when it comes to football scheduling — and it appears that wish is going to come true.
