Trojans, Buffs enjoy friendly rivalry

Wednesday, July 3, 2019 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

Like any high school baseball team, the Parkland Trojans spend much of the year hanging out together, putting in time in the indoor batting cages during the offseason and then banding together for a long high school season.

Unlike many of the local high school teams, though, the group is split in two for the Lehigh Valley Legion baseball season. The one, tight-knit team is divided between North Parkland and South Parkland. Twice each LVL season, and often in the playoffs, they go up against each other.

Summer league basketball is about improving both as an individual and as a team, and to allow players and coaches will learn more about one another.

The Parkland boys basketball team showed grit last weekend at the Bash at the Beach tournament at Cedar Beach. After dropping a two-point game to Central Catholic in their opener, the Trojans won their next three games to advance to Sunday before they were eliminated from the tournament that was formerly known as the Stellar Catch a Rising Star Tournament.

Parkland falls to Reading in summer league

Thursday, June 13, 2019 by CJ HEMERLY in Sports

The Parkland boys basketball team got off to a slow start Tuesday in it’s summer basketball game against Reading.

The Trojans trailed the perennial state power Red Knights by nearly 20 points in the first half. But Parkland never gave up and came within one shot of a win.

The early deficit proved too much to overcome as the Trojans lost the game against the Red Knights 52-48 last Tuesday evening in the Cedar Beach Summer Basketball League.
