If you’re a motor boat owner and are you having motor problems because of ethanol contaminating the innards of your motor, a new survey by Boating Industry Magazine says those in the boating industry that manufacture, sell, repair and store recreational vessels are seeing a growing number of problems caused by ethanol-related fuels. Said one boat dealer in the survey, “Ethanol fuels are great for our service department but bad for our customers!”
Twenty-eight years ago, Eric Snyder had one of those night’s where he couldn’t sleep.
He remembered a passage from a book written by legendary college football coach Lou Holtz who stated that he would “get up and do something to make him tired.”
So Snyder decided to follow the initiative. He had his concept and groundwork for the then initial Tournament of Champions, but he wanted to add another twist. Snyder wanted it to be a rotating tournament in which a different league every year would be the host site.
BERLINSVILLE – The hits just kept on coming and coming for the Iron Financial Orioles Monday evening in the second game of a best-of-three series against the upstart Berlinsville Braves.
The Braves could hardly answer, save for a solo home run by their player/manager Cody Krupa. Meanwhile, the Orioles jumped on starting pitcher Tyler Svetik early and gradually pulled away for an 8-1 victory.
The Orioles sweep the series and eliminated the Braves from the league tournament, the best season in Berlinsville’s history.
Summer is a usually a break from school for most students, but for Dwight Repsher and the Whitehall girls basketball team, the summer gives the players an opportunity to gain some experience while they look to carve out their own space as they head into the new school year.
Whitehall’s offensive line was in hog heaven recently, claiming another title as they prepare for the upcoming season.
They have now won consecutive titles at the Battle of the Hogs at Lansdale Catholic High School. They even accomplished this feat without two projected starters.
In these Dog Days of summer, fishing in local waters often becomes slow due to high temperatures and low water conditions. All of which makes many fish lethargic. But instead of pursuing them with rod and reel, why not try a bow and arrow.
The Coplay Connie Mack team’s march toward a title was halted when they lost in the second round of the playoffs.
Their focus then shifted to the state playoffs where they’re part of the eight clubs from the Lehigh Valley Connie Mack Baseball League who will play teams from the Bux-Mont Connie Mack League.
Some people may think that the Indy 500 is the premier sporting event over the Memorial Day weekend, but folks in Whitehall may point to another event that has its own die-hard following that could one day rival the race at the Brickyard.
The Coplay Connie Mack team remains in the hunt for a state championship, splitting a pair of games in the opening round of the playoffs.
When the state playoffs began on July 20 at Limeport Stadium, Coplay drew Hatfield-Towamencin from the Bux-Mont Connie Mack Baseball League. Hatfield-Towamencin, the third seed, handed Coplay, the eighth seed, a 10-2 loss.
That put them in a must-win game against Nazareth. Coplay responded with a 12-2 win, earning them another game which is set for Tuesday against Catasauqua.
The word consummate is often linked to professional, or pro, but in the case of seniors Cara Bonshak and Kylee Cunningham, that word can also be associated with student-athlete.
Yes, Bonshak and Cunningham are the consummate student-athletes who give total effort both on and off the field. They’re the embodiment of that credo that hangs on their gymnasium wall, commonly known as the PRIDE banner: Prepared Respect Involved Dependable Empathetic. They’ve maintained those four principles throughout their athletic careers at Whitehall.
