The Whitehall Waves recently concluded its summer swimming season with a record of 4-3, and a fifth-place finish in the Suburban Swim League Championships, scoring 597 points.
Waves who placed in the top three at Championships included the 11-12 girls 100 medley relay team of Martha Giletto, Julia Thomas, Katie Lutterschmidt, and Michaela Hendricks, finishing second, and the 9-10 boys 100 medley relay team of Lucas Zintel, Niki Martinovic, and Andrew Gawad, finishing third.
Whitehall High School's varsity cheerleading squad won the silver medal in the small division at the District XI cheerleading competition on Jan. 26 at Easton Area Middle School.
The Zephyrs' second-place victory earned them the right to compete at the PIAA State Cheerleading Championships in Hershey.
A cross country invitational earlier this season provided Whitehall's, Gabe Lamm, with just enough experience to improve on his time significantly at last weekend's PIAA State Cross Country Championships at Parkview Cross Country Course in Hershey, Pa.
"I ran it earlier in the year, and I was just thinking I have to do a lot better," Lamm said.
Lamm went from a time of 19:10 to 17:45 on one of the most challenging courses in the state. The Zephyr sophomore was Whitehall's only state qualifier after the District XI meet on Oct. 24.
No team was more hopeful and surprised than the Whitehall Zephyrs when the announcement was made that sophomore cross country runner, Gabe Lamm, won the last spot to the PIAA State Cross Country meet after qualifying at the District XI meet on Oct. 24 at Bethlehem Municipal Golf Course.
As the Zephyrs erupted in cheers for Lamm, his teammates surrounded him with hugs and pats on the back.
Prior to the announcement, Lamm knew it could go either way, having finished in 15th place in 17:31.
