Last weekend saw the completion of the Northeast Region 3A Wrestling Tournament, and with it came the end of the wrestling season for the Zephyrs.
Whitehall’s Xavier Arner was trying to become the first Whitehall wrestler to advance to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association’s Individual Wrestling Championships since 2012. He gave it a good run, finishing sixth among the 13 competitors in the 132 lb. class. He won two bouts, ultimately losing to Delaware Valley’s Preston...
Looking at his team as a whole, Whitehall head swimming coach Pete Rile believed his squad could compete with any team in the East Penn Conference.
When it came to individual performances in the recent District 11 meet, Rile realized it might be a different story.
“When we matched up head-to-head, it was a good situation for us,” said Rile. “But we didn’t have the individual strength you need at districts.
“Overall, though, we did swim well. In our relays, both the boys...
If you visited the recent Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, or traveled to Atlantic City for the gigantic Atlantic City Boat Show, and spied a boat rig you’d like to have, perhaps you may need to start shopping for a loan to finance it.

While the Phantoms have basically no hopes of playing in the postseason, the players have to be aware that they are always on the stage and seeking to open eyes. Times like these are when players can stand apart somewhat by putting out strong efforts even though they know the team won’t really benefit by gaining a spot in the postseason. The Phantoms have a couple guys who are looking to show off what they can do as the AHL season heads into the home stretch.

Sophomore Xavier Arner has the opportunity to extend his wrestling season into March, and that’s the place where he hopes to lead the rest of his teammates in the coming years.
Arner advanced to the 3A Northeast Regional Wrestling Tournament by defeating Parkland’s Bryan Diaz 3-2 to earn fifth place during last weekend’s District XI 3A Individual Wrestling Tournament at Liberty’s Memorial Gymnasium.
He was among four Whitehall wrestlers who were in the 5-6 matches as Wilfred...
The end of the season is a bitter pill to swallow for any student-athlete associated with scholastic sports, and the Whitehall boys basketball team felt all those emotions once the final horn sounded in the opening game of the district playoffs.
After finishing the season with consecutive victories to catapult them into the District XI playoffs, the Zephyrs were halted by visiting Pocono Mountain West in their quest to advance through the 6A brackets in search of a championship....

Perhaps it’s because we’ve had a mild winter so far, but trout anglers are getting the itch to fish. And if the weather holds, preseason trout stockings will get underway March 3 in Lehigh and Northampton counties.
As for the latter, Minsi Lake in Northampton County, is also on the schedule to be stocked since it was closed and drained for dam repairs in 2017. The dam work is completed and the lake is scheduled to be stocked with trout on March 24 ahead of the Regional Mentored Youth...
It’s been a topic that nobody around the Phantoms or Flyers has wanted to talk about, but perhaps now, more details will emerge.
The man at the center of the story – defenseman T.J. Brennan – was dealt to the Chicago Blackhawks for forward Nathan Noel, who was assigned to the Reading Royals of the ECHL by the Flyers.
The Brennan controversy started a little over a month ago during a five-game homestand for the Phantoms. How it started depends on who you talk to, but the...
