        TAMAQUA FOOTBALL AND PENN STATE SCHUYLKILL CROSS-COUNTRY

  (Mr. MEUSER asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. MEUSER. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize several 
impressive athletic accomplishments that have recently taken place in 
Pennsylvania's Ninth Congressional District.
  Last Friday night, Tamaqua football made history as they secured 
their first-ever district championship. After coming close to winning 
the championship for the past several seasons, I applaud the team's 
resilience and grit.
  But football isn't the only sport to talk about in the Ninth 
Congressional District these days. For the third consecutive year, Penn 
State Schuylkill women's cross-country team took home the conference 
title at the Pennsylvania State University Athletic Conference 
Championships. This is the first time Penn State Schuylkill has 
achieved a three-peat. They are truly a sports dynasty.
  Congratulations to both Sam Bonner, head football coach at Tamaqua 
High School, and Joe Muldowney, head cross-country coach at Penn State 
Schuylkill, for leading their teams to victory.
  Perseverance and dedication are defining characteristics of 
Pennsylvanians. I am incredibly proud of the Tamaqua football and Penn 
State Schuylkill women's cross-country teams for these accomplishments.
  And always, I am very honored to represent the great Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania's Ninth Congressional District.
