Dulaney shuts down Rovers in semifinal

Thursday, May 17, 2018 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

Parkland only needed one run to win Monday’s Eastern Pennsylvania Conference semifinal softball game. The No. 2 seed Trojans got the game’s only run in the second inning then held off a seventh-inning rally from No. 3 Easton to advance to this week’s title game with a 1-0 victory.

The Rovers had their best chance to score when Gillian Walsh blasted a double to the right-field fence to lead off the seventh inning. But Parkland got out of the inning with two ground outs and a strike out to complete the three-hit shut out.

Big second half pushes Parkland past EHS

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

Thursday, April 26, 2018 by SAM MATTA in Sports

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.
