Elyria Athletic Directors, Heather Beck and Matt Siwierka, joined us in the Petey Podcast studio to talk sports and particularly, football! Tonight, August 19, Elyria Pioneers will play hometown rival, the Elyria Catholic Panthers at Dan Reaser Stadium at Elyria Catholic. The two teams are well-matched and it's a not-to-be-missed event in the proud city of Elyria.
Siwierka is new to the Elyria Athletic Office as the Middle School Athletic Director. He grew up in Elyria and attended Elyria Schools, where he returned after college to teach at Elyria High School. He was named Athletic Director in July 2022. Beck has been the district's AD for numerous years but with Siwierka's hiring, will now focus primarily on high school sports. The two have big plans for Elyria Athletics, with great things to come. Take a listen!
