Thursday, September 27, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in Sports

Evan Notaro owns two District 11 medals, earning one in each of his two appearances at the district championship.

The Northampton senior was hoping to add some Lehigh Valley Conference hardware to his trophy case Monday at the LVC Golf Championship.

Notaro earned a league medal Monday at Allentown Municipal Golf Course, but it wasn't the one he was hoping for. He shot a 4-over par 76 to tie for second place, earning the silver medal by a match of cards.

Girls get first loss

Thursday, September 27, 2012 by JEFF MOELLER Special to the Press in Sports

Entering this season, the Northampton girls' tennis team attempted to keep a low profile off their overall 16-3 season 12-2 Lehigh Valley Conference (LVC) in which they graduated five seniors including number one singles player Brittany Hodge.

So far, however, it has been hard to hide.

Beginning this week, the Kids had an overall 12-1 record that included an undefeated streak through their first eight matches. Their lone loss was to LVC perennial contender Parkland, who the...

Kids golf team feels it's on the rise

Thursday, September 20, 2012 by SCOTT W. PAGEL in Sports

The Northampton golf team played well this year, and only a key early season loss has them wondering what could have been as far as winning the LVC.

The Kids lost to Emmaus in their opening match, one in which they did not have their top player in senior Evan Notaro. So, it appears the Hornets will grab the LVC title this year. However, NHS may have a chance to get revenge if it can make it to team districts at Willowbrook in Catasauqua on Oct. 3. The Kids need Moravian or Notre Dame...

Girls continue to be 'solid'

Thursday, September 20, 2012 by GEORGE GEIGER Special to the Press in Sports

"Solid" is the word that fits when talking about Northampton's field hockey team.

Coach Kelly Backenstoe uses that word often when speaking about her unbeaten Konkrete Kids.

Northampton scored two more wins this past week - starting out with Nazareth 2-0 and trouncing Dieruff 7-1 - to raise the Kids' record to 6-0 overall and 4-0 in the Lehigh Valley Conference.
