Mother Nature once again made life a little difficult for the area’s coaches, players and athletic directors, but Northampton’s spring athletes were able to pick up a couple key wins last week.
The K-Kids’ boys’ volleyball team won two nonconference games over North Pocono and Southern Lehigh to improve its record to 2-2. Both contests were 3-0 sweeps.
Northampton’s softball team opened the season with two big victories: 15-0 vs. Fleetwood and 17-2 vs. East Stroudsburg-North. The K-Kids had a full week off before resuming their East Penn Conference schedule against Emmaus on Wednesday, April 4.
