As is the case every year, the Northampton cross country banquet is a bittersweet night for head coach Dan Benner. Obviously, it is a fun night in which the team recognizes many of the successes throughout the season, but it is always sad to graduate seniors and their families.
The team honored seven seniors: Vince Gallagher, Isaiah Tyler, Thomas Martinez, Marcus Newhart, Lena Kugelman, Marissa Mele, and Olivia Rigo.
The team recognized varsity letter winners: boys - Vince...

Last December, the Phantoms lost top goalie prospect Carter Hart to the Flyers when goalie Anthony Stolarz went on injured reserve. This season, they were blessed with another top prospect on the roster, but he didn’t even last as long as Hart.
The Flyers recalled Morgan Frost Monday and it’s likely that he will see his first NHL action with the team immediately.
Frost’s recall also has a Flyers injury as at least part of the reason the Phantoms are losing the organization’s...
Saturday, Nov. 23 kicks off the rifle bear season for its three-day run that ends Nov. 27. After that, there’s the extended season from Nov. 30-Dec. 14 in Wildlife Management Units 2B, 5B, 5C and 5D. The extended opener also opens again in WMUs 1B, 2C, 3A, 3B, 3C, 3D, 4A, 4B, 4C, 4E and 5A, but that period ends Dec. 7.
Pennsylvania is known nationwide for having large bears. Bruin’s in the 500-600-pound range are taken every year and in fact two were shot last year that topped 700...
For the first time ever, I didn’t get one pick right in last week’s edition. Truly a Haley’s Comet moment, but also a great week for all three winners last week, as Nazareth’s victory over Parkland will always be remembered by the Blue Eagle faithful for their Nazareth special.
Pottsville proved that they are no joke, as they head into the state tournament and Southern Lehigh dismantled Oil City 41-0 in their state playoff game.
What can all three teams do this week?

The Phantoms Tyler Wotherspoon is just one member of the family playing in the AHL, with the other being his brother Parker Wotherspoon, who plays for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.
Growing up the two were generally at different levels because of a four-year age difference. Their paths diverged even further as they got older and even through junior hockey, the two never got to play against each other.
Tyler, 26, was drafted by the Calgary Flames in the second round of the 2011...
With the cold temperatures and occasional snow flurries we’re experiencing, it may be the incentive to think about the upcoming skiing/snowboarding/tubing season.
In a prepared press release, Tricia Matsko, Director of Sales and Marketing at Blue Mountain Resort in Palmerton, said they put their snow guns in service last Friday night thanks to below freezing temperatures and low humidity. It’s their first attempt this year to make snow and to build a base on the major trails of Lower...
Even though they dropped a close 42-37 decision to Easton in a District 11 Class 6A opening playoff game, Northampton took another step toward gaining further respectability, especially in the East Penn Conference South Division.
With the annual Thanksgiving tilt with Catasauqua in a few weeks, the Konkrete Kids have compiled a 17-6 record over their last 23 games.
“I’m proud of our kids,” said Kids’ head coach Kyle Haas. “They didn’t give up and they just kept fighting....
