Parkland looks for first win against Kids

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Coming off of a 35-28 loss to Lehigh Valley Conference rival Easton last Friday night at home, the Parkland Trojans football team will travel to Northampton on Friday night and look to get into the win column to break a two-game losing streak.

Head coach Jim Morgans said after last Friday night's game that a win will ease some of the tension that is going on at the moment.

It will have to begin on the defensive side of the ball. Parkland has given up 72 points over the course...

Boys soccer stays perfect

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

While the high school soccer season is no more than two weeks old, there is one thing the Parkland boys soccer team has yet to experience - losing.

Last Friday's 3-0 victory over Northampton has the Trojans sitting at 3-0 overall and 2-0 in conference play in the early going.

Maybe more importantly is the fact that the Trojans have now opened up their division play with victories over Nazareth and the Konkrete Kids (0-3, 0-1).

"This is a big win for us because they're in...

Trojans can't answer Red Rovers' assault

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

As the Easton football team ran off the field last Friday night at Parkland School District stadium, the Trojans and its staff were left stunned. The coaches stood motionless near their endzone trying to grasp what just had happened.

Ezra Gaines caught a 53-yard pass from Brad Wilkins to put Easton up 35-14 in the fourth quarter. The Red Rovers scored 28 unanswered points, and completely shut down Parkland offensively, on their way to a 35-28 Lehigh Valley Conference victory.

Growing pains for field hockey

Wednesday, September 12, 2012 by LOU RUSNOCK in HS Sports

Eventually the bounces will start going the right way for the Parkland field hockey.

But for the young team in a young season with a new coach, things have yet to break very favorably.

First-year coach Michelle Steele saw a lot of things she liked during her team's 2-1 overtime loss to Northampton on Monday. Her squad had most of the possession in the K-Kids' half. When they didn't, they showed great speed on the counterattack with senior attacker Brooke Benedict leading the...

COLLEGE CORNER Hibshman has a new role for Temple

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

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...

Krajcir's athleticsm is a big asset for the girls volleyball team

Wednesday, September 5, 2012 by LOU RUSNOCK in HS Sports

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...
