Junior attacker James Cipolla had a night to remember. The Ohio State commit had five goals and an assist in leading the Parkland boys lacrosse team to an 11-3 win last Thursday night against Emmaus in Eastern Pennsylvania Conference action at Emmaus High School’s Memorial Field.

The Trojans (10-3 overall, 8-1 EPC) blitzed the Green Hornets (8-5, 7-3) in the second half, outscoring them 7-0 after intermission, with six of those goals coming in the fourth quarter.

Trojans sweep season series with Emmaus

After a lopsided loss to Parkland the first time the teams met this season, the Emmaus baseball team looked forward to Monday’s meeting against Parkland. The Hornets surely remembered the 14-run shelling the Trojans put up in one inning the first time around.

Monday’s game went right down to the wire. And in dramatic fashion, a 4-3 Trojan win that was far different than the 17-1 drubbing a few weeks ago.

Staib earns three medals at ASD

There were plenty of busy athletes at last Friday’s Allentown School District Invitational Track and Field Meet.

But there might have been none busier than Parkland junior Shelby Staib.

While many track and field competitors participate in several events, few of them take their talents from one discipline to another. Staib, however, excels in both throwing and jumping events. She competed in two events in each discipline last Friday and earned top five finishes in each one.

Smith no-hitter beats Vikings

Thursday, April 19, 2018 by CHUCK HIXSON in Sports

After putting up a 17-run outburst against Emmaus, the Parkland offense has continued to swing the bats better than expected this season. They put up six runs in a win over Northampton and then scored 13 against North Penn in a wild 13-12 non-conference win.

Those 12 runs combined with eight given up to Liberty the game before seemingly had the pitching staff on the ropes.

On Tuesday, Adam Smith delivered a big blow in the form of a no-hitter, that will likely reset the pitching staff, which is one of the deeper staffs in area baseball.
