Rivalry[edit]

Pen Argyl has been involved in a long-standing rivalry with Bangor Area High School. The football rivalry between these two teams is arguably the most well known aspect of this rivalry. The game was initially played on Thanksgiving Day, but this tradition ended in the mid 1970s. It is now the regular season finale for both teams. The two teams first met on the football field in 1922, with 2016 marking the 97th meeting between the Green Knights and the Slaters. Despite a decent size difference between the two schools, Pen Argyl leads the overall series 50-43-4. They have won 16 of the last 18 meetings.

Athletic Facilities[edit]

The Green Knights football team has their home games at Alumni Stadium, located on the high school campus. The stadium has a cement based home section, stretching from goal line to goal line and rising 20 rows above the field. A smaller visitors section was installed on the other side of the field in the early to mid 2000's. The stadium is also known as "The Hill", as it is located on top of a short but steep hill. Alumni Stadium is one of only two football fields in the Colonial League to not have stadium lights (The other being Wilson Area High School). As a result, home games are played on Saturday afternoons.

Recently, the school refinished and updated their gymnasium floor with a new Green Knight design, donated by the class of 2010.
