Whitehall falls to Patriots in tennis

Thursday, September 12, 2019 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

Freedom is one of those tennis teams that Whitehall is trying to emulate, and while last week’s match resulted in a loss, the gap is closing between the two schools.

After losing 7-0 to the Patriots last year, the Zephyrs tried to see if they could turn 2019’s encounter into a more favorable outcome. It wouldn’t be easy. A deeper look inside last year’s match reveals that the Pates won every match in straight sets.

This year, Whitehall won two of the three singles matches to...

Thursday, September 12, 2019 by TOM WENBORG in Sports

The Northampton and Whitehall girls volleyball teams renewed their Cement Belt rivalry last Thursday night at Whitehall High School.

The two teams had split their contests last year, but this match was dominated by the Kids in straight sets, 25-6, 25-14 and 25-15.

The Zephyrs had entered the match with reason to be confident after taking a set off perennial power Nazareth in their opening match. However, the match proved costly as Whitehall lost their setter, Lexi Crum to...

A few hours later, the Konkrete Kids’ girls soccer team evened the standings by scoring a 2-0 win on the Zephyrs’ home turf.

Thursday, September 5, 2019 by JEFF MOELLER in Sports

Whitehall’s football season already may be at a crossroads.

The Zephyrs return home Friday night to host Emmaus in a key East Penn Conference (EPC) showdown for both teams. Whitehall (0-2) is looking for its first win of the season after they suffered a 46-28 loss at Easton last week.

Against Easton, Whitehall found itself in a 21-7 hole in the opening half as they struggled to stop Red Rovers’ running back Nahjee Adams, who scored on runs of 75 and 78 yards and rambled for 192...

Zephs top Pleasant Valley in tennis

Thursday, September 5, 2019 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

Friday’s tennis match against Pleasant Valley tested Whitehall’s depth and tenacity, and the Zephyrs scored big on both fronts.

After surviving a busy week in which they had four matches scheduled, Whitehall was faced with the challenge of playing Pleasant Valley without their No. 1 singles player. Natalia Pedraza, who is currently 4-1 on the year, was going to miss the match versus the Bears, forcing head coach Alex Green to juggle the lineup against a good team from the northern...
