Bats silent in North Parkland's loss to Coplay

Wednesday, June 12, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

North Parkland legion baseball manager Terry Stoudt understands the quality of his pitching staff, but also has come to the realization that the offense may struggle at times throughout the season.

Much of that was seen during the Buffaloes' start to the season on Sunday, which included a double-header against West Allentown and Coplay.

Tyler Duff allowed one hit and struck out nine batters through six innings against Coply, but the Buffaloes' bats weren't able to generate...

Trojans get revenge, win district title

Saturday, June 8, 2013 by SHANE BAGLINI Special to the Press in HS Sports

It is said that revenge is a dish best served cold, but in the stifling heat of Coca-Cola Park last week, the Parkland baseball team got its revenge. In a game that featured four errors and fifteen walks, the Trojans defeated rival Whitehall 5-2 to win the District 11 Class AAAA championship for the first time since 2009.

Starting pitcher Tyler Duff went 4 1/3 innings, striking out one and walking seven while getting the win.

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.

The Mountain Valley Conference/Colonial League boys gave up three goals in losing 3-0 to the Lehigh Valley Conference all-stars. The girls teams tied 2-2 in a rain-shortened game. Both games were played last Sunday afternoon at Whitehall High School.


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 (...

The Parkland baseball team was one win away from making it to their first District 11 Final since 2010 when it took the field on Saturday afternoon at Hackett Park in Easton.

Gabe Mosser made sure the Trojans got that win, leading his team to a 3-0 victory over Pocono Mountain East to advance to the Wednesday's title game at Coca-Cola Park.

Mosser went six innings, allowing just six hits while striking out six, walking four and allowing no runs. Mosser threw big pitches and got...

Trojans cap season with successful state meet

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Parkland Track and Field team had over 100 athletes on its roster at the beginning of the season.

At the end of it there was one Trojan standing at the top of the podium donning a state gold medal.

Nolan Hay was head and shoulders above the rest last Saturday afternoon at Shippensburg University as the senior jumped a 24 feet, 2 inches in the long jump and took first place in in Class AAA on the second day of the two-day state track and field meet.

Hay, who will be...

After barely missing a Lehigh Valley Conference playoff berth, Parkland's softball team had more two weeks off before openign District 11 tournament play.
