Wrestlers shifting focus to postseason

Wednesday, January 23, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

With just a few matches left in the regular season, the Tigers are at the point in the wrestling season where they can focus solely on individual postseason goals.

While the Tigers (0-10) would love to pick up their first dual meet win of the season in one of their final three matches, it's not their sole focus.

"Postseason is always the goal," said Northwestern head coach Jim Moll. "I tell the guys the dual meets and tournaments we're in, it's all just training for the...

Slow start leads to loss against Falcons

Wednesday, January 16, 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.

A tough...

Tigers' Miller is piling up accolades

Tuesday, January 8, 2013 by ANDREW STEINMETZ in HS Sports

This past fall, Northwestern junior Cole Miller was busy putting in work on numerous golf courses throughout the Lehigh Valley, consistently shooting rounds in the 60s, earning medalist honors in dual matches, setting course records and qualifying for districts, regionals and eventually the PIAA State tournament.

At the completion of his junior year, he finished in second place at the two-day state championship tourney at Heritage Hills in York, and at the same time, put an end to an...

Tigers' Yost is at the head of the class

Tuesday, January 8, 2013 by EMMETT MCCALL in HS Sports

Haley Yost proved time and time again this season that she had the answers.

A league, district and state cross country medalist, Yost aced one test after another.

But even when your achievements make you the valedictorian of the area cross country class, there are times when you need some help.

For those occasions, Yost has the ultimate phone-a-friend 2009 PIAA Class AA State Champion and former Tiger teammate Lindsay Kerr.

Yost's talent and hard work, along with...

Stelmack's leadership was key for Tigers

Tuesday, January 8, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Unselfishness is easy to spot in most sports the basketball player that makes the extra pass, the baseball player that doesn't mind laying down a sacrifice bunt.

In cross country, a sport which celebrates individual accomplishments as much as those of the team, it's a little harder to pick out the athletes that care more about their teammates than themselves.

Northwestern's Tyler Stelmack added to an impressive list of individual accomplishments this year and for it he earned...

Lady Tigers erase 18-point deficit to beat Southern Lehigh

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

It's not the way the Northwestern girls basektball team wants to win games. But in the long run, having to come back from an 18-point deficit against Southern Lehigh Tuesday night could give the team confidence.

The Lady Tigers fell behind 44-26 early in the third quarter, but battled back to beat the Spartans, 72-65.

While it was a difficult task and one the team surely doesn't want to face again, it can only help them down the road to know they can withstand that type of...

Jones scores 1,000th

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

In a time when more and more athletes seek individual attention, it's good to know there are still players like Sara Jones.

The Northwestern senior recently scored her 1,000th career point for the Lady Tiger girls basketball team. It's a goal many high school players aim for, but one few attain.

However, Jones preferred not to celebrate the individual accomplishment during the game. She even asked head coach Chris Deutsch to ignore her milestone and have the team play right...

Catty holds off improving Tigers

Wednesday, January 9, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

Northwestern's boys basketball team is off to its best start in three years.

The Tigers headed into this week at 4-7 overall and 2-4 in the Colonial League. The team has already eclipsed its win total from the last two seasons combined.

Second-year head coach Dan Eddinger is pleased to see his team's improvement, but he's not nearly satisfied with it.

"There's definitely progress," he said after last Thursday's loss to Catasauqua. "It's just not progressing as quickly as...

Ortiz takes fifth at BHC

Wednesday, January 2, 2013 by MIKE HAINES in HS Sports

The early part of the season has been a roller coaster ride for the Northwestern wrestling team. The ride continued last weekend at the annual Bethlehem Holiday Classic.

The Tigers got close to placing a trio of grapplers in the medal round, but managed just one in senior Michael Ortiz.

"I think we underperformed," said head coach Jim Moll. "Only getting one guy through, I thought we'd have two or three. We had two guys who were one win away so I guess we got close. For the...
