Every season writes its own script, and this year’s boys basketball team with its mix of talent and experience, could offer an intriguing tale that features a possible postseason run.
In any story a protagonist is needed, and the Zephyrs have plenty of returning players to fill that role led by senior Dylan McGinley who can play both inside and out, displaying a feathery touch from the perimeter and strong post skills as well. He averaged 12.5 points per game last season to lead the...
From the midway point of last year’s basketball season, the Whitehall girls basketball team began laying the foundation for what could be a very bright upcoming season.
After some early struggles, they went 6-7 down the stretch, finally posting a 7-15 mark. That turnaround, coupled with their familiarity with second-year coach Josh Madas’ scheme and style, illustrates that the girls have the ability to build on that success once they step onto the court this season. It’s something...
The local District 11 postseason is over.
The Catasauqua-Northampton Thanksgiving Day clash will formally pull down the curtain on the overall season.
Except for Tamaqua, both Nazareth and Southern Lehigh had its seasons end at the hands of District 1 suburban Philadelphia powerhouses last weekend.
Nazareth was thumped by District 12 champion St. Joseph’s Prep – a team laced with Division I recruits including the son of former Philadelphia Eagles’ middle linebacker...
It’s finally the end of the football season and for our viewing area, this is an earlier exit for Lehigh Valley teams than we’ve been accustomed to in recent memory. Bethlehem Catholic’s run to the state semifinals over the past couple of years helped prolong the season after Thanksgiving, but with Nazareth falling to St. Joe’s Prep and Southern Lehigh getting bounced by Archbishop Wood, that leaves us with only Turkey day games this week.
So, enjoy the start of the holiday season and...
The Phantoms clicked their skates together three times and said “there’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.”
With that, the team that had lost four straight returned to winning form with back-to-back wins taking two of the three games on their recent homestand.
The good news for the team is that three of its next five games are also on home ice, giving the team some momentum.
On Wednesday night, the Charlotte Checkers were in town and it was Gerry Fitzgerald...

It’s here. It’s deer - the firearms deer hunting season that is.
The much awaited rifle deer season gets underway statewide Saturday, Nov. 30, when the majority of sportsmen go afield in hopes of bagging a buck. And this year, the season opens on a Saturday after Thanksgiving instead of the Monday after the holiday as it has traditionally been.
According to Chris Rosenberry, supervisor of the Game Commissions Deer and Elk Section, “The Saturday opener will become the biggest...
For Devon Roberts, these are the trying times.
The Whitehall senior is admittedly antsy to begin the winter track season. Her recent cross country year didn’t end the way she anticipated.
Roberts battled with an ear infection and later an allergic reaction to her medication that dealt a severe blow to her league and district performances, both seen as a springboard to the state tournament.
“My first day back was leagues, and my legs didn’t feel that good,” said Roberts,...
