Two NYAA lax players named to all-star team

Thursday, August 6, 2015 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Northwestern's lacrosse team doesn't have the reputation of other schools like Parkland, Emmaus and Southern Lehigh, but that didn't stop two Tigers from making a name for themselves across the Lehigh Valley youth lacrosse landscape.

Cole Norman and Zach Anderson, who both play for the Northwestern Youth Athletic Association (NYAA) U-15 boys lacrosse team, were recently named to the Lehigh Valley Keystone Games all-star squad that competed at Penn State.

Norman and Anderson were two of 21 selections out of the 45 kids that tried out at Southern Lehigh High School.

While a championship in the summer would be nice, the main goal of the Northwestern coaching staff is improving its girls' basketball team throughout the offseason.

So, when the Tigers are paired up with Class AAAA schools from the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference they don't mind it one bit. In fact, the Tigers prefer that challenge as they face schools of that stature regular season nonleague games.

During last week's SportsFest A-Town Throwdown Tournament at Allentown's Cedar Beach Park, the Tigers experienced plenty of that competition firsthand.

Northwestern soccer players enjoy World Cup trip

Millions of people watched the Women's FIFA World Cup from their own homes.

Thousands of others had the opportunity to watch the games from celebratory events in the Lehigh Valley, such as the Soccerfest and Viewing Party at Bethlehem's SteelStacks.

But only a select few had the chance to watch a game from that tournament live in the host country of Canada.

Tiger boys play three games at Stellar

Head coach Billy Hallman and his Tiger boys basketball team experienced much of everything in the recent Stellar "Catch A Rising Star" Basketball Showcase.

There was a close, competitive game against a out-of-the-area team in Twin Valley. There was a decisive victory against a fellow Colonial League foe in Pen Argyl. And there was a matchup against a far more talented and athletic squad from out of the area in Bonner Prendergast.

Haaf's OT goal lifts Tigers over Liberty

Thursday, July 2, 2015 by TODD KRESS in Sports

Even without nearly half of his team's starters in last week's summer game, one thing remained constant from last fall's squad-leading goal-scorer JD Haff.

Against an Eastern Pennsylvania Conference (EPC) team in Liberty last Wednesday, Haaf was one of just a handful of Northwestern starters from last season that were in uniform. But that didn't stop the Tigers from pulling out a gritty overtime victory after allowing a late equalizing goal in the final minutes.
