Summer hoops starts with win

Saturday, June 8, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

A little over three months after the Parkland boys basketball team won its first district championship in four years, the Trojans took to the outdoors for the first summer league game of the 2013 offseason.

Gone were the familiar faces of leading scorer Austin Beidelman and fellow seniors Nate Case and Astin Jones. It was time for a new core of players to step up and fill the stat sheets.

Nick Selvaggi tallied 14 points and fellow rising senior Nick Rindock contributed 20...

With both the boys and girls soccer seasons in the fall for the first time this year, the 32nd Annual Lions All-Star Soccer Classic was played nearly six months after the final kick for many of these local high school area players.

Northampton edges Parkland in closest of three games

Saturday, June 8, 2013 by CHUCK HIXSON Special to the Press in HS Sports

It's not easy to beat a good team three times in one season. After beating Parkland by scores of 8-0 and 7-0 during the regular season, Northampton had some confidence heading into its third meeting with the Lady Trojans in the District 11 semifinal.

But this game didn't follow the script of the two earlier meetings. Northampton still came away with a win, but this time it was by a 2-1 margin thanks to the hard play of Parkland.

Both teams have good pitching. Marly Laubach (...

Coming into last Friday afternoon's game against Southern Lehigh, the Parkland girls lacrosse team knew it was going to be in for a battle for 50 minutes. The Spartans (17-3) had beaten the Trojans (17-5) twice during the regular season, but the Lehigh Valley Conference champions had found some momentum in the postseason.

For the first 12 minutes of Tuesday night's District 11 boys lacrosse semifinal against Central Catholic, Parkland jumped out to a 3-0 and held all the momentum.

But how the final three periods unfolded wasn't anything like the first.

The Vikings went on to score eight of the final nine goals and advanced to the championship game with an 8-4 victory over the Trojans at Nazareth's Andrew Leh Stadium.

Seniors stand out at D-11 track meet

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Track and field athletes prepare all spring in hopes to qualify for the postseason. They dream about the final stride, the last good heave or that concluding hoist in the air that edges their competitors and earns them a district medal.

For most this is only a fantasy that never becomes a reality during their high school career. For Mikayla Stoudt she is living that dream over and over again. And she is only a freshman.

Last week at the District 11 Track and Field Championships...
