The senior girls' volleyball player isn't about make any preconceived notions about her team's overall 2-9 mark and 0-7 slate in the Lehigh Valley Conference (LVC).

"We still can turn this around," said Carvin. "We all work hard and know in our hearts that we can do this. None of us have given up on the year and we want to...

In one of the most important events of the high school golf season, the last thing a player wants to have are bad holes early in the round.

But that didn't bother Northampton's Kevin Kunkle. The junior took double bogeys on two of his first seven holes. But he didn't let those two holes ruin his round at Monday's District 11 Golf Championship Qualifier.

Kunkle carded a six-over par 78 Monday at Woodstone Golf Club in Danielsville after playing the final five holes at one-under...

Thursday, October 4, 2012 by PETER CAR in Sports

A lot of things went wrong for Northampton in last week's 42-12 home loss to Central Catholic and head coach Jeff Brosky hopes a lot of things go right for the K-Kids this week against Emmaus.
