There aren't many matches for the Parkland girls tennis team to get excited about and its tough to blame them. After stomping Lehigh Valley Conference competition for the past 64 matches, winning becomes routine.
But facing an unbeaten Northampton team last Thursday, the Trojans had something to prove.
"The whole team was more focused today then they've been all year," head coach George Grim said. "We've gone to some matches where it's a pretty foregone conclusion. But today...
Saucon Valley 12,
No. Parkland 6
The 125s couldn't come up with enough offense to solve a stingy Panther defense in a 12-6 loss.
The Buffs only trip to the end zone came when Michael Ruisch found Adam Salvaggio for a 20-yard touchdown pass. It was North Parkland's second loss of the year.

It's been three years removed from the switch.
Arialle Hess competed her freshman year at Temple University, but transferred after that year to Virginia Commonwealth, and it couldn't have been better for the 2009 Parkland graduate.
"So far it's worked out perfectly," Hess said. "I'm really happy here and I really like the coaching staff. I think overall this program has changed a lot. It seems that I have fit in well to what they are trying to do. The main reason I came here...
So. Parkland Black 20, Lower Macungie 16
South Parkland Black 125s came back from eight-point deficit in the final four minutes of the fourth quarter to defeat the Lower Macungie Mustangs.
Harper Puckett was deadly all night going 7-for-10 and 152 yards passing with two touchdown strikes. Puckett twice found Braxton Hayes for scores.
With the score 20-16, Lower Macungie drove the ball to Trojan two-yard line. The Mustangs had a first and goal at the...
Breanna Mazalewski's name is one you'll find throughout the La Salle University volleyball team's record books.
The senior libero entered her final season in sixth place in school history for total career digs with 1,041. While the number one spot on the list will continue to be occupied by Carolyn Judge with 2,080 career digs, Mazalewski's goal of climbing the ladder is happening before our eyes.
After 14 matches played this season, Mazalewski has tallied 220 digs on the...
Coming off of an 8-0 white wash of Dieruff in the Don Hunt Memorial Challenge over the weekend, the Parkland girls soccer team has had no problem finding the back of the net.
Monday night, it took seven shots before the Trojans notched their first goal of the night in a 6-0 non-conference win over Pottsville at home.
"We started off a little bit slow," said Hannah Gombos, a senior forward. "But when we play to feet and look to make diagonal runs that has seemed to help us get...
Whether it is pumping up her teammates after a mistake, or being one of the first to congratulate a teammate after a goal, Kayla Mueller has been a leader on and off the field for the Virginia Commonwealth field hockey team.
Mueller, a 2010 graduate of Parkland, has seen an increased amount of playing time her first two years on the campus of VCU. The junior is looked at as a leader and a great teammate.
"Off the field I just want to be a good teammate and cheer everyone on,"...
It was only a matter of time until the Trojans got on the scoreboard in Thursday's boys soccer matchup with Liberty.
Parkland dominated possession and shots, a hallmark to their young season thus far.
Nick Hutchinson slid a pass into the path of Logan Howell who directed a shot over the arms of Liberty goalkeeper Anthony Silva to give the Parkland boys soccer team a 1-0 Lehigh Valley Conference victory at home last Thursday afternoon.
"When Nick found me I just chipped a...
The Parkland Trojan football team finally got into the win column last Friday night with a 28-0 victory over Northampton in a Lehigh Valley Conference matchup. The win comes after two tough losses by a combined nine points.
"I congratulated them, and I was excited that we got our first win," said head coach Jim Morgans. "I told them to soak it in for a little while, and then get ready for next week. I also told them that we are capable of scoring and capable of more. We just can't...
What was said by a number of the Parkland leaders during halftime of last Friday's game against Northampton seemed to spark the Trojans in the second half.
After a first half that included four turnovers and two punts for the Trojans, and a 43-22 play discrepancy in favor of the Konkrete Kids, Parkland knew they were a better team than the scoreless first 24 minutes indicated.
"A couple of our leaders stepped up, and we realized our performance in the first half was...
