Thursday, September 20, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

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...

Thursday, September 20, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in Sports

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,"...

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...

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...

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...

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.
