The 30th Annual Howard E. Deppe Senior All-Star Baseball Classic was played Saturday at Limeport Stadium, with the Pink team, comprised primarily of players from the EPC downing the Blue team of all-stars, primarily from the Colonial League, 5-1. Dieruff's Shane Seibert got the win, while Northampton's Noah Durnin suffered the loss.
The game raises funds for the American Cancer Society, while giving high school senior players the opportunity to get together for one, final game.
Mina Feyrer had a goal for her and her relay teammates coming into the District 11 Swimming Championships this past weekend at Parkland High School.
That goal was to place in the top-four in all four events that she was swimming in - two individual events and two relay events - to finish out her senior season at Whitehall.
"I'm definitely proud of it. It was my goal to go four-for-four with our records and our placing, and I actually did, so I was happy about it," said Feyrer of reaching her goal.
Fans at the Phantoms' 3-2 win over Toronto last weekend saw something that doesn't happen very often in hockey and it turned out to be quite a turn of events.
In soccer, giving up early goals can put a team in a desperate position and that's exactly where the Zephyrs found themselves Tuesday night in the first round of the PIAA Tournament. Three goals in just over 18-minutes left Whitehall in a deep hole that they wouldn't be able to dig out of to prevent their season from coming to an end.
Madison Mohr had two goals and two assists for Elizabethtown, who were the District Three runner-ups and Whitehall's opposition in the first round of states.
It turns out that the fourth time is actually the charm. After losing both regular season games and the EPC Championship to Parkland, the Zephyrs picked up a 1-0 win over their rivals in the semifinals of the District 11 Tournament.
Whitehall and Parkland battled in the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference championship and as much as Parkland tried to pull away, the Zephyrs kept catching up. Unfortunately, with the game on the line in penalty kicks, it was Parkland that came out on top, winning the penalty kick phase 4-2 and recording a 3-2 win in the game.
After Parkland took a 1-0 lead with 27:30 left in the first half, the Zephyrs came back 20-minutes later on a goal from Maddy Walker to tie the game 1-1.
