Mostl high school athletes' long-term goal is to play their sport in college.
Only a few make it and even fewer receive scholarships for their participation. A dozen of them put their signatures on letters of intent last week at a signing ceremony at Parkland High School.
Four Trojan football players committed to colleges, including Mike Unger (West Chester), Tim Baranek (Lock Haven), Jarel Elder (West Chester) and Andrew Feuhrer (Stetson).
Four members of Parkland's...
The last time the Emmaus and Parkland boys volleyball programs met, the Green Hornets edged the Trojans in a five-game series by a 3-2 score, and were crowned 2012 District 11 champions.
Last Thursday night it was much of the same as Emmaus (8-1 overall, 6-1 LVC) battled back from down two games to one, to defeat previously unbeaten Parkland (8-1 overall, 7-1 LVC) 3-2 at Parkland High School.
The official final scores were 25-21, 16-25, 23-25, 25-19, 15-12. The win continues a...

A little over a week ago, the Parkland boys lacrosse team fell to Emmaus, 8-3, to open up LVC play.
Since then, though, the Trojans have won four straight and have looked much like a top force in the conference. The Trojans (5-1, 3-1 LVC) responded with impressive conference wins over Nazareth (5-4) and Central Catholic (5-4), and most recently, a 21-0 romp over Bethlehem Catholic on Tuesday afternoon that put Parkland among the LVC's top teams.
"That Emmaus game really meant a...
At the beginning of the season, girls lacrosse coach John Seitzinger wanted his team to be looked at as a perennial Lehigh Valley Conference and District 11 power.
After five conference games, his Parkland team looks very much the favorite in the league.
The Trojans (6-2, 5-0 LVC) came out firing on all cylinders and remained unbeaten in the LVC with a 23-4 win over Freedom last Monday afternoon at Freedom High School.
Seitzinger has stressed balance in his offensive...
Tyler Graeff hit a ground ball that hit off the glove of the third baseman, and Brad Vasilik came around to score the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth inning for a 6-5 non-league, extra-inning win over Freedom last Thursday at Parkland High School in a battle of the unbeatens.
"We've been playing well," said sophomore Chris Rabasco. "We'd like to play a little bit better because some games that we have won have been a little bit shaky. It's definitely good to start off...
Tuesday's game against Northampton marked Alex Flynn's pitching debut at the varsity level for Parkland.
And by judging his performance on the mound, you wouldn't even know it.
After replacing starter Rhett Jacoby - who went 2 1/3 innings and gave up four runs on nine hits - Flynn pitched 3 2/3 innings of one-hit baseball that helped the Trojans respond from a four-run third inning for the Konkrete Kids, and come away with the 7-4 victory.
The win keeps the Trojans...
Lehigh Valley IronPigs manager Dave Brundage has been around the game of baseball long enough to realize how special Opening Day is.
So when he makes his debut as the third manager of the franchise at Coca-Cola Park on Thursday night against the Syracuse Chiefs, he'll be ready to try and continue the success that Ryne Sandberg had in his two years at the helm. Sandberg was promoted to third base coach of the major league Phillies in the offseason.
The big difference for...
