Senior Callie Krajcir came out of the girls volleyball preseason with a defined role.
After double sessions had ended and the roster was set, she was slotted as the team's libero.
But when the defending state champion Trojans took the court in their season-opener against Freedom on Tuesday night, Kracjir wasn't donning the red jersey reserved for the player at that spot.
Instead, Lyndsey Iacobelli was playing libero and Krajcir was on the front line.
"She is so...
Turnovers were the key component in the 37-35 season opening loss at Delaware Valley last Friday. A slow start didn't help, but the Trojans shot themselves in the foot by turning the ball over three times, while still eclipsing over 400 yards of total offense.
What helps Parkland is that they were not the only Lehigh Valley Conference favorite to lose the opener. Whitehall and Liberty also got off to 0-1 starts. The Trojans will look to not only get off the schneid and into the win...
If the Parkland football team learned one thing about itself in Friday's opener with Delaware Valley it was that its new offense could put up points in a hurry.
Unfortunately for the Trojans, it took a little too long to figure out how to crack the Warrior defense.
The slow start doomed Parkland in a 37-35 loss in Milford.
"There's no question it hurt us, especially the turnovers," head coach Jim Morgans said. "We messed up a kickoff in the first quarter which hurt us,...
South Parkland's youth teams began their Suburban Youth Football League campaign with wins over the Bethlehem Steelers at the 110- and 80-pound levels.
Beth. Steelers 32, South Parkland 6
The Bethlehem Steelers dominated South Parkland in their season-opening SYFL matchup on Saturday. Poor tackling and mistakes doomed the Trojans from the start. The Steelers struck first on a 60-yard touchdown run on the third play of the game.
The Trojans stayed in the...
Going back to her days at Parkland High School, Temple University field hockey player Sydney Hibshman was one of the anchors of the Trojans defense.
After seeing time on defense and at the forward position in her first collegiate season as an Owl, Hibshman is entering 2012 at a new position. She'll be seeing plenty of time at either the left or right midfielder position.
While being accustomed to playing on the defensive end of the field for much of her career, Hibshman is...
When it came down to choosing a college, it seemed all too easy of a choice for Kevin Herod, a senior fullback. The Parkland grad came through the Wing-T offensive set run by head coach Jim Morgans, and was recruited to do just that when he signed to play at Shippensburg University.
"When I came to visit Shippensburg, I liked the coaching staff and the way they run the Wing-T offense," said Herod. "Since it's what I ran at Parkland, I would be able to pick it up. I was also able to...
John Laub was bred into the game of football. At the ripe age of six, Laub was out competing on the gridiron. He had the raw talent from a young age and that was due in large part to the legacy before him.
Laub's father, John, played football at the University of Delaware, and his grandfather, Doug, played at the University of Penn. He even has a second cousin known for his success in the game, former pro Matt Millen.
"It's a game I just grew up to love," said Laub. "It wasn't...
The South Parkland Gray Midget team recently won the Parkland Youth League Baseball Championship. The Trojans defeated Grandlawn #1 in the title game 13-12, in a game played over two nights.

Pictured above are team members, front row, left to right: Nick Mohr, Will Kroboth and Michael Kellar; kneeling: George Jenkins, Jake Nimeh and Hani Kitabwalla; standing:...
Balancing two sports with academics is always a tough act, especially being successful at both sports.
Rob Dvoracek mastered that craft, while still being a level-headed student his senior year Parkland High School. For these accomplishments, he is named the 2011-12 Parkland Press Male Athlete of the Year.
On a team known for its run-first style of play, Dvoracek was the go-to-guy on the Trojan attack this past season. His numbers were incredible, rushing for 1,246 yards and 27...
