Boys looking to compete this season

Thursday, April 11, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

Consistency is something that Northampton’s boys lacrosse team is aiming for following a 5-13 campaign a year ago.

Head coach Jace Shively knows that the program has room to grow, but is looking for development and having the team compete every time they step on the turf.

We have a good senior group and my hope is that we at least match our wins from last year,” he said. “As we improve so do other teams, however, we should be able to stay consistent. Our defensive group has definitely improved, and gotten bigger and stronger.”

Girls hope to improve

This season might be shaping up to be a rebuilding year for the Northampton girls’ lacrosse team or it could be one where they’re seeking improvement in the program.

The K-Kids finished 2-16 last season and lost 15 seniors from last year’s squad, leaving plenty of opportunity for underclassmen, but also a void in leadership.

Head coach Paige Hoffman, coming into her sixth year with the program understands the process at hand with the squad she has currently.

Chlebove a state champ - again

Thursday, March 14, 2019 by PETER CAR in Sports

Julian Chlebove acknowledges that he has plenty of “haters” in the wrestling world, but that only seems to motivate him.

The Northampton senior came away from last weekend’s PIAA 3A wrestling championships with his third state title in four years after dispatching Bethlehem Catholic’s Kenny Herrmann 6-2 in the 132-pound finals.

It was the seventh-straight win over Herrmann and the third in as many weeks en route to completing his K-Kid career on the mats.
