Giants win first BML crown since 1994

Thursday, August 21, 2014 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

Northampton's Cody Kramer just missed on a pitch in the bottom of the seventh inning of Game 3 of last week's Blue Mountain League championship series that would have propelled the Giants to a series win.

When he saw the same pitch one throw later from Limeport's Adam Maini, he made the Bulls pay for it.

With that swing also came history for the Northampton Giants.

Hallman named boys basketball coach

Thursday, May 22, 2014 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

William "Billy" Hallman spent the last seven years as the assistant coach of the Northwestern girls basketball team. Under head coach Chris Deutsch, Hallman, a 1994 graduate of Northwestern High School, was a part of a successful Lady Tiger staff that accomplished much over the past seven seasons, including a Colonial League title just a few months ago.

Now, Hallman will get his chance to be the main guy in charge. And he'll be staying put in New Tripoli.

Segan, Tigers top Slaters in CL semi

Thursday, October 17, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

The Northwestern Lehigh girls soccer team finished the regular season as the conference's premier team.

It's hard to argue against that statement by looking at the Tigers' performance on Tuesday night as the Colonial League tournament got under way.

Sarah Segan scored four goals and added two assists, and the No. 1 seeded Tigers routed No. 4 seed Bangor in the Colonial League semifinals, 8-2, at Salisbury High School.

"I'm trying to make runs," Segan said. "My teammates are making great balls. We're really playing as a team, and that's all we can ask for."

Miller pulls off three-peat

Wednesday, September 25, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Northwestern Lehigh's Cole Miller will be the first one to admit last Wednesday's round at the 2013 Colonial League Golf Championships at Bethlehem Golf Club wasn't his sharpest.

But Miller's even-par 71 was enough to lead the rest of the Colonial League, and the senior was able to add a third consecutive league title under his belt.

"The drivers and irons were really solid," Miller said. "I hit 13 greens, and I hit plenty of fairways. I really gave myself chances to make a lot of putts. Unfortunately, the putter wasn't quite as good as I would've liked.

Tigers hitting woes aid loss to Falcons

Thursday, April 25, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in Sports

On paper, last week's matchup against Salisbury figured to be one of Northwestern Lehigh's toughest games of the season.

The Falcons entered last Wednesday's game as the only unbeaten team remaining in the Colonial, stationed at 7-0 in conference play and 10-0 overall.

Unfortunately for the Tigers, the Falcons didn't seem to miss a beat once again.

The Falcons (13-0 overall; 10-0 in Colonial League) scored five runs in the first inning, and Tyler Cooperman held the Tigers (9-5 overall; 5-5 in Colonial League) to just one hit in seven innings in Salisbury's 8-0 victory.

Slow start leads to loss against Falcons

Thursday, January 17, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

After facing a 15-point deficit to end the first quarter during last Friday's game against Salisbury, it looked as if the Northwestern boys basketball team had its hands full against last season's league champs.

The Tigers, however, responded in the second half to pull to within just three points in the fourth quarter.

And with 41 seconds to play, the Tigers (7-11 overall; 2-7 in Colonial League) had another opportunity to make it a one-possession game late.

Segan nets hat trick as girls improve to 11-0

Thursday, September 27, 2012 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

Northwestern Lehigh sophomore Sarah Segan is having one remarkable season for the Tigers' girls soccer team.

Segan entered last Thursday's game against Salisbury as the Colonial League's leader in goals scored. In the Tigers' (11-0 overall; 8-0 in Colonial league) 3-0 victory over the Falcons (6-4 overall; 6-2 in Colonial League) at Salisbury High School, Segan netted all three goals, bringing her total to 24 in just 10 games this season.

And she'll be the first to tell you that she couldn't have imagined how the season has unfolded.
