Heading into the PIAA Swimming and Diving Championships, Northwestern Lehigh's Trey Shackleton wasn't necessarily sure of his high school swimming future beyond this year.
Shackleton had personal goals he had sought to accomplish at last weekend's Class AA state swimming meet in both of his individual events.
And despite earning two top-six finishes, Shackleton still has some more he wants to accomplish. He finished third in the 500-yard freestyle and sixth in the 200-yard freestyle over the two-day meet at Bucknell University's Kinney Natatorium
The Northwestern Lehigh boys' basketball team captured its first district championship in 1964.
During halftime of last Friday night's game between Northwestern and Catasauqua, that team was honored for winning the District 11 Class C Championship 50 years ago. The Tigers defeated Jim Thorpe in the title game.
Under the guidance of head coach Russ Stoudt, who played three sports at Kutztown University and is a member of the school's Hall of Fame, the Tigers put together one of the best runs in school history.
Kutztown University redshirt senior wrestler Evan Yenolevich has had a tremendous collegiate career thus far.
However, Yenolevich, a 2009 graduate of Northwestern High School, recently suffered a setback that has kept him off the mat for over a month.
Ever since his early teenage years, Brad Eroh has been involved in racing of some sort.
Eroh, a 1997 graduate of Northwestern High School-started racing go-carts at the age of 13. During his early career as a go-cart racer, he captured eight championships, including the national go-cart championship in 1998.
In every sport, a select number of players rise to the level as dominant playmakers on his or her team.
Sarah Segan, a junior at Northwestern Lehigh High School, has certainly reached that status on the Tigers girls' soccer team. She is a dynamic goal-scorer, has the ability to find her teammates, and was often the best player on the field.
Segan put together another dominant season on the field as a junior, tallying 36 goals and 12 assists for a Tigers team that captured Colonial League and District 11 Class AA championships in 2013.
On Sunday afternoon at Northampton Memorial Community Center, the 2013 Lehigh Valley Soccer Scholar Athlete Annual Awards Banquet was held to announce this year's scholarship winners.
The Soccer Scholar Athlete Award was first established in 1975, and two more student-athletes would add their names to the list of past winners.
Leigham Breckenridge, a senior at Northwestern Lehigh, won the 2013 Frank D. Olszewski Memorial Scholarship Award. Southern Lehigh senior Abigail Kohler was awarded the 2013 Gary F. Toth Scholarship Award.
During Madison Burns' career at Northwestern High School, the school didn't have a swimming team. Therefore, Burns swam individually, while devoting her junior year to representing the Tigers in various meets throughout the season.
When she was a senior, Burns didn't swim in the high school ranks, but instead she focused her final season while swimming on her club team, Parkland Area Aquatic Club.
That hasn't derailed Burns, a 2012 graduate of Northwestern High School, from putting together a fine career thus far at the University of North Carolina.
Heading into her freshman season on the Lock Haven women's soccer team, Haylee Kubat just wanted to prove herself to her fellow Bald Eagles.
After learning the ropes in her first season, Kubat has blossomed into one of the team's most consistent players.
Kubat, a 2012 graduate of Northwestern Lehigh High School, appeared in four games as a freshman. But during her sophomore campaign that recently came to an end, Kubat saw action in all 18 of the Bald Eagles' games, including 12 starts at the midfield position.
Throughout his golf career at Northwestern Lehigh High School, senior Cole Miller has proven to be one of the top golfers in the state.
Now, a little more than a month after his second-consecutive second-place finish in the PIAA 2A Golf Championships, Miller is officially set to take his playing career to the next level.
On Monday at Northwestern Lehigh High School, Miller-accompanied by his parents Carl and Jenny Miller, as well as Tiger head coach Tim Miller-signed his official letter of intent to attend Pennsylvania State University where he'll continue his golf career.
Northwestern Lehigh junior Sarah Segan visited a number of schools as she sought to continue her soccer career at the collegiate level.
After visiting schools toward the end of her sophomore school year, Segan had no question as to where she wanted to play upon her final college visit in Williamsburg, Virginia.
