Vecellio reaches championship

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

Nick Vecellio knows about qualifying for districts.

In three years on the Northwestern Lehigh High School golf team, Vecellio has competed in all three District 11 Qualifiers and played his way into the district championship tournament field each time.

He did it again Monday at Woodstone Golf Club in Danielsville. The junior shot an 83, the fourth-lowest score in Class AA, to easily advance from that event on to next week's District 11 Class AA Championship at Shawnee Golf...

Marich anchors Albright's backfield

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

During Austin Marich's senior year of high school at Northwestern, he didn't know where, or even if, he was going to play college soccer. Marich had a plethora of college offers, including Division I, before he sustained a torn ACL.

His club team, FC Revolution, participated in college showcase tournaments. Some schools remained recruiting him, and others gave him a walk on option.

"It was tough because I had other opportunities at Division I levels," said Marich. "That's what...

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...

Reeling Spartans top Tigers for first win

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

For the first time since its week 1 loss to Palisades, Northwestern looked like the young football team that it is.

Last Friday night a visiting Southern Lehigh team desperately needing a win came into Tiger Stadium and played its best game of the season.

The Spartans' backs were to the wall and they played like it, posting a 46-10 win and keeping Northwestern at arms length after opening an early lead.

"They're a well-coached football team with a lot of skill guys and...

Miller is golden again

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

One of the hardest things about the game of golf is to continually improve. Most players have peaks and valleys. Most take a step or two backward for every one they take forward.

The most remarkable thing about Cole Miller's golf career is his steady improvement. Through three years the Northwestern junior has continued to get better, each season achieving a little bit more than the one before it.

Last Wednesday he won his second straight Colonial League Championship Tournament...

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...
