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.

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.

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 Day, according to the PF&BC.

Of course, trades in the real sports world aren’t like the trades pulled off in the world of fantasy sports where “owners” just talk to a friend and work out some zillion-player blockbuster trade. In the real world, there are things like salary caps, player contracts and locker room chemistry.
