Northwestern boys soccer beats undefeated Salisbury

Thursday, October 11, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Last Thursday afternoon's boys soccer game between Northwestern and Salisbury had the feel of a late-October playoff atmosphere in mid-September.

Hard tackles, teammates yelling directions, and the two teams jawing back and forth highlighted this up-and-down contest. Brandon Ettl curled in a free-kick 10 minutes into the second half, and the Tigers defense held firm in a 1-0 Colonial League Conference victory.

"We came out here to win," Ettl said. "We knew that they were a good...

Segan nets hat trick as girls improve to 11-0

Thursday, October 11, 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...

Tigers must bounce back

Thursday, October 11, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

If the last two weeks proved anything about Northwestern's football team, it is that the Tigers' season-opening loss had no lingering effect.

This week the team will have to prove that its second loss of the season isn't going to dampen any hopes or expectations.

"We definitely learned from past experience that we are capable of bouncing back and putting a few wins together," said Northwestern head coach Josh Snyder. "We said at the beginning of the year that our goal is to...

Miller shoots career low 63

Friday, September 14, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Most golfers have gotten that unforgettable feeling for a shot or two. Some have even played stretches of a few holes or more where the ball just seemed to go where they wanted it to on nearly every shot.

But very, very few golfers can sustain that for an entire round.

One of those few is Northwestern junior Cole Miller. In a match against Pen Argyl on August 27 Miller shot a career low 63. He made nine birdies and no bogeys, shooting 3-under par on the front nine and a 6-under...

Tigers tame Falcons

Friday, September 14, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

When one football team beats another in all three facets of the game - offense, defense and special teams - the result is usually a comfortable margin of victory.

Northwestern beat Salisbury in all three phases last week and came away with a 23-0 win in the 2012 Tiger Stadium home opener.

After losing by 41 points in week 1, the Tigers wanted to prove they're a better team than the one that was shut out by Palisades on opening night.

"To come back off a 41-0 loss and win...

Stelmack takes fourth, Yost fifth

Friday, September 14, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Tyler Stelmack knows the DeSales University cross country course. He's run it plenty of times in his career.

The Northwestern senior used his knowledge of the course to earn a fourth-place finish Saturday in the 34th Annual DeSales Invitational. Tiger teammate Haley Yost ran to a fifth-place finish in the girls race as four Northwestern runners took home medals, which went to the top 25 finishers in the varsity races.

The Tigers' Rachele Cerrone (12th) and Carly Pierce (18th)...

Tigers face unpredictable Pirates

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Scouting a team in Week 1 is never an easy task. Very little game film exists of the opponents and they can always be expected to make some tweaks and adjustments to what they did in the preseason.

Friday night Northwestern's going to see a Palisades team that not only has a new coaching staff, but also has several of last year's key players in new positions.

"They were very conservative in their scrimmages," said Northwestern head coach Josh Snyder. "They're going to have a...

Volleyball team ready for first season

Wednesday, August 29, 2012 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Northwestern girls volleyball players had always hoped to play for a high school team. Some of them had been playing for the Northwestern Volleyball Club since middle school, competing against other high school teams during the spring club season.

For years they had been trying to get a high school team started that would compete against others in the fall, but as last year's school year was coming to a close, they still had not received approval.

Finally, in early June the...
