Zephs fall to Emmaus

Thursday, September 13, 2018 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

Football is a game where tight bonds are formed, a game where every player is looking to win at the point of attack, and those shared battles draw players close to one another as they sweat and toil in the quest for victory.

Senior Chad Hussett knows about those battles and those bonds. He took the field last Friday wearing the jersey of teammate Mekhi Lee who was lost for the season after suffering an injury against Easton the prior week. He decided to honor his sidelined friend by...

Kreglow ready to do it all again

Thursday, September 13, 2018 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

With the American Ninja Warrior experience now complete for Logan Kreglow, the former Whitehall grad is ready to do it all over again.

And why not?

After all, how often does one get to live out a dream and essentially compete in something that hearkens back to their youth?

“It keeps you active, you stay fit, and you’re like a little kid playing on a jungle gym,” said Kreglow. “I would absolutely do it again.”

Kreglow got to compete on that adult-sized jungle gym...

Northampton edges Whitehall in soccer

Thursday, September 13, 2018 by NICHOLAS SEAGREAVES in Sports

An early EPC Skyline divisional soccer meeting on Sept. 5 saw local rivals Northampton travel to Whitehall.

Only separated by a couple of miles it makes this match extra special for both teams. The two teams were going into this game with different intentions. Northampton, coming off a loss to Emmaus (3-2), wanted to get their first win of the season. While Whitehall, coming off its win against Nazareth (5-1), wanted to keep its winning ways going.

Kids knock off Zephs

Thursday, September 13, 2018 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

The Whitehall girls volleyball team found itself trying to extend their match against Northampton to five sets, but the Kids made a late rally in the fourth to ultimately defeat their Cement Belt rivals.

Whitehall jumped out to an early 6-3 lead and then it went back and forth until the Kids started to pull away at 15-16, prompting head coach Eric Budge to call at time out once Northampton reeled off two more consecutive points to take a 15-18 lead.

The Kids were able to...

Outdoors: Archery seasons are set to begin

Thursday, September 13, 2018 by NICK HROMIAK in Sports

The most anticipated archery deer hunting season kicks off this Saturday in Wildlife Management Areas 2B, 5C and 5D. The statewide archery deer season begins two weeks later on Sept. 29. Coincidentally, the early archery bear season also opens Sept. 15 in the same trio of WMUs.

But the primary pursuit is deer. And we do have an abundance of them. In fact, too many in certain areas.

Most recently about a dozen Salisbury Township residents voiced their concern at a commissioners...

Field hockey continues to play tough opponents

Thursday, September 13, 2018 by STEVE ANDRES in Sports

It was another tough afternoon for the Whitehall field hockey team as the early part of their schedule has been loaded with some high-powered offenses that have left them winless after three games.

To date, the Zephyrs have played Easton, Emmaus and Pocono Mountain East. Those three teams combined for 59 wins last season. Additionally, those three teams are undefeated this year, and Whitehall found out just how potent the Cardinals’ offense is during their home game last Saturday...
