PHS volleyball tops Emmaus for district title

Thursday, May 29, 2014 by PATER CAR in HS Sports

A three-year district championship run came to an end for Emmaus last week, as Parkland toppled the Hornets 19-25, 25-20, 25-15, 25-19 in four games last Thursday night at Whitehall High School.

With the Hornets winning the first game of the series, it put them back down memory lane of their recent District 11 three-peat, but Parkland proved to be the better team in the next three games, powering through in deciding fashion to push the Hornets into a runner-up battle against District...

PHS alumni reunite at ESU

Thursday, May 29, 2014 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in Sports

The 2013 season was a very successful one for East Stroudsburg University's baseball team. The Warriors won the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference and advanced to the Division II tournament.

Several key players on that team graduated from Parkland High School. The Trojans program helped them transition easily into the collegiate game.

"Playing at a successful program like Parkland really helps you prepare to play in college," said ESU senior Andy Brandstetter. "Parkland has...

Cooperman earns many accolades

Thursday, May 29, 2014 by The Press in Sports

Bloomsburg University's Casey Cooperman earned All-Atlantic Region honors from both Daktronics and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association following a stellar senior season on the mound for the Huskies.

Cooperman made school history with his selections, as he became the first Bloomsburg player to be named to the first team Daktronics All-Atlantic Region. The Parkland High School graduate also received a second team all-region nod from the NCBWA.

The ace of the...

Mosser shuts out Hornets in title game

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

For the fifth time in the past eight seasons, Parkland ran off the field as Lehigh Valley Conference baseball champions. This time, the Trojans downed Emmaus, pounding out nine hits and nine runs to shut out the Hornets 9-0 last Wednesday at Hackett Park in Easton.

Gabe Mosser, who missed some time with a sore back, was phenomenal on the mound for the Trojans. The senior right-hander allowed just five singles and walked just one batter in the game. Only twice - in the fifth and sixth...

Trojans edge Emmaus in tight LVC title game

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

The final championship in Lehigh Valley Conference history played out in a spectacular way, but with a controversial ending. The Lady Trojans were on the right side of that ending and captured a 1-0 win over Emmaus to grab their fifth LVC championship softball championship in the history of the conference, which will merge with the Mountain Valley Conference for games starting next season.

As usual, Morgan Rentzheimer was dazzling on the mound, extending her scoreless streak to 49...

PHS wins LVC final, seeks D-11 gold

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by PETER CAR in HS Sports

Parkland's volleyball team earned its first piece of hardware last week by winning the Lehigh Valley Conference championship over Northampton. Now the Trojans are looking to double up Thursday night when they take on Emmaus in the District 11 Class AAAA championship at Whitehall High School.

The Trojans (16-2) had too much experience and talent for the K-Kids (15-3) in last week's LVC final, which Parkland took in four games 25-10, 25-13, 21-25, 27-25 to win their second straight...

Girls lacrosse seeks first district title

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Juniors Mackenzie Galli and Sophia Castillo were the last to leave the huddle and walked off the field together. They made sure their Trojans teammates had no issues as they left before them, just like there were no problems on the Emmaus High School field last Tuesday night in the semifinals of the District 11 lacrosse tournament.

Galli and Castillo combined for 10 of the 18 Parkland goals, and took control in the midfield when the Trojans needed control most.


Boyesen earns silver in discus

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Boys javelin has been Parkland's best event most of the regular season and the postseason. The Trojans swept the medals from the event at the Lehigh Valley Conference meet two weeks ago.

They had much of the same success in javelin last week as it provided half of Parkland's four state qualifiers from last week's District 11 Track and Field Championship Meet at East Stroudsburg South High School.

Stephen Laird, Derek Ziegenfuss, Kareem Williams and Legend Boyesen all are state...

Javelin sweep leads Trojan boys to meet championship

Thursday, May 15, 2014 by TYLER TRUMABUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Parkland Trojan boys track team won the 2014 Lehigh Valley Conference track and field meet championship.

It was due in large part to the efforts of Derek Ziegenfuss, Stephen Laird and Nicholas Hassler in boys javelin.

That trio of Trojans swept the medal stand at last week's LVC track and field meet, held at the Zephyr Sports Complex at Whitehall High School. Parkland's Ryan Hunt finished fifth in the event as the group collectively earned 33 points for its squad and...

Volleyball team seeks second straight LVC title

Thursday, May 15, 2014 by PETER CAR in HS Sports

Scott Trumbauer knows that every team that takes the court against Parkland is going to give everything it has.

That's why the Trojans need their own wake-up calls sometimes.

Parkland landed a spot in yesterday's LVC volleyball finals, but needed to get over a game-one hurdle against Easton during Monday's semifinals to win in four games, 23-25, 25-20, 25-16, 25-20.

The Trojans met Northampton in last Thursday's championship, but game was played after Press deadline....
